Coloratti News | Helen Yancy


by Brenda K. Hipsher – January 13th, 2011

I had the pleasure last week of interviewing and chatting with Coloratti Helen Yancy.  If you don’t know Helen you can visit her webite at www.helenyancystudio.com. You’ll enjoy getting to know her. She’s delightfully upbeat, optimistic, and has the capacity to simplify even complex information.  These are just some of the qualities that make her a favorite speaker and teacher. But above all Helen is a photographer and Helen is an artist.  She takes very seriously her privilege to capture extraordinary and unique images and present them in timeless and classic ways. Helen has been at this for awhile.  She has a lot of experience to bring to her work. Here’s what her website says about her…

Working on location or in her comfortable residential studio, Helen’s goal continues to be creating exquisite art pieces that portray people and their relationships with sensitivity, realism, and imagination. During her distinguished career, Helen Yancy has earned the rare distinction of being the first person in the world to receive every degree and honor presented by Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the largest and most prestigious professional photographic association in the world. She is a past president and chairman of the board of PPA and is one of only a few Americans to be honored as a Fellow of the British Institute of Photography…

I chatted with Helen about what she’s doing this year and talked with her about some of her thoughts on color management.  Helen says she uses color management because she was always “mad at everybody.” I had no idea that color management could improve the quality of our emotional lives!

We’re looking forward to having Helen with us for a guest webinar between her travels this spring. Her technical expertise and her presentation style makes her a favorite presenter around the country and beyond.  Stay tuned for more information on that here on the blog and on Facebook and Twitter.
