Student Testimonials

Read how students reflected on Mamatography™ Photo Workshops by Vicky Scesa

"I just completed the Photography Basics Workshop via Skype with Vicky. I am getting immediate results with my photography! The lesson was not overly complicated but covered terms and settings that I had no idea how to use before. Vicky was so down to earth and made everything so simple to understand. My favorite part of the lesson plan was how she solidified my learning through talking me through situations that I will encounter with the type of photography that I like. For all you mom's out there with expensive cameras that you don't know how to use, Vicky will teach you how to get the most out of your camera! I look forward to taking my next lesson. Thanks Vicky!

"I am an Etsy seller who does well but struggles with getting even good photos. Luckily for me I became acquainted with Vicky. We spent an hour on skype where she explained to me what I needed to do to improve my photos. She did some specific things that anyone would benefit from.
-She looked at my photos before we met to analyze some of the things I am doing wrong and what I could do to improve. In other words she came to the lesson prepared.
-She also was able to address my camera, which is just a point and shoot, so that she was able to know the capabilities of the camera I am using now. She also advised me on an upgrade when I am ready to commit.
- She is positive and did not talk down to me although I know very little about photography.
-She helped me choose settings one by one and try them during the lesson to get the desired results.
- At the end of the lesson she gave a summary from her notes taken during the lesson that helped to make things clear in moving forward.
It was so helpful to me. I am still experimenting with some settings and light but I am improving and was even able to take some photos of small jewelry I have wanted to list for a long time but have not because I could never get a clear enough photo. By the way, both pieces of jewelry sold the same day I listed them. Without hesitation it is the best money I have spent to improve my skills to upgrade my Etsy shop."

"I took group lessons with Vicky- what a great experience! We put together our own group of "moms" and spent a couple of weeks learning everything from sports action shots (indoors and out), to lighting and composition. Vicky was patient, detail oriented, dependable and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in having fun learning how to capture priceless memories that go by WAY too fast!"

"I had a photography lesson with Vicky and I had a great time. She tought me the basics of the camera I was going to take pictures with, she even wrote them down for me so I could take it home! And then we shot, and it was fun, I took pictures of what I enjoyed which is fashion/beauty. Like of store shots, manicans, jewelry! I am a teen, so I defiantly recommend her to any other teen who is interested in learning photography!"
