Mandy Pallock

Mandy used to travel the world teaching photography and digital imaging classes with a Christian photography school, the Institute of Photographic Studies. Now she’s settled in San Antonio with her happy little family, running her own photography business and helping run the Life Purpose Planning organization. She writes and shares and drinks coffee, not necessarily in that order. Mandy’s goal is to live purposefully engaged through each phase of life. Mandy passionately believes that people who understand and live out their God-given purposes will change the world.



A camera can be a bridge or a barrier—


A tool to tell the story that God has laid on your heart, or a means to separate you from the action He is sending your way.


How will you use your camera for the glory of God?



This six-day photographic masterclass will be custom-designed to meet the interests and needs of the artists. After initial consultation and portfolio review on the first day, we will dive into specific sessions, photo shoots, and review and critique. Each day will entail teaching sessions and hands-on location shoots, with time for review and critique. Students will create a Week in Review video slideshow that showcases their own and other Guild students’ work.
