Kim Winey - Capturing Moments Through the Lense

Kim Winey (www.kimwineyphoto.com) is passionate about photography, as demonstrated by her emotive "outside the box" presentation of God's unfolding gifts. 


In 2017, Kim Winey celebrates her seventeenth year as a professional photographer. In the past, her emphasis has included portrait photography, wedding photography, styled shoots, and photojournalism.  Currently, she specializes in "Unconventional photography experiences for exceptional childlike creatures".

Kim's photos have been featured in Life Beautiful Magazine, The Knot, Happenings Magazine, Susquehanna Style Magazine, Elizabeth Anne Designs Blog, Fabulously Wed Blog, Yip Yap Girl, Evoking You, In Beauty and Chaos, Love Photographs Beautifully, Shoot & Share, as well as several other magazines, blogs, and newspapers. In addition to her photography work Kim has also volunteered her gifts for a variety of church, school, and charity events.

While photography continues to be at the forefront of her business, each year Kim embraces more mentoring and teaching opportunities.  She offers one on one mentoring, "live-in" internships, online lessons, as well as "Bootcamps" for photography.


Kim resides in Lancaster County, Pa with her husband, Fred, 18 year old son, Conner, their spunky dog, "Angel", and dysfunctional cat, "Taz".  She will be returning to the Lamplighter Guild for her seventh year as a Master Teacher, as well as the Guild's official photographer.

To prepare for this class, please:


- Send 6 of your favorite photos (any style, but not repetitive images) to kimwineyphotography@gmail.com, by June 4th.  Google Drive may be used as well.   These photos should be images that you have taken yourself.  Photos may be edited if you so choose.


- Create a Pinterest board containing a minimum of 35 pins of paintings, drawings and/or photos that inspire you.  


- Bring your camera, all memory cards, all batteries, a battery charger, and a lens cleaning cloth to class each day.  Cameras may be of any brand, however they should have a manual setting option {ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture controls}.  Kim will have two cameras on hand that may be borrowed during class time, if needed.


- Memory cards should have ample space on them for practice photos, during class.


- All batteries should be fully charged, prior to class. 


- Also, bring your camera's manual (the instructional booklet) if possible.


- Knowing in advance how to adjust your camera's ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture would be helpful, but is not required. 


- Please also bring a notepad and pen to class each day.
