Mindpictures, Inc. has closed and we have retired.
Mindpictures.com is a gallery of what we create just to feed our own souls. It is a place where we can share what enriches us and we think others may find some joy from the things we do.
Feed your soul!
Mike and Nancy Maynard
About the Artists:
Mike has had a love for photography since he bought his first camera in 1970. Trained at the University of North Dakota and at the New England Institute of Professional Photography, he started Mindpictures, Inc., in 1978. He has worked with creative darkroom techniques and, since the introduction of computer imaging, continues to find new ways to say just the right thing in an image. He is a past president of the Vermont Professional Photographers and was on the board of the Professional Photographers Association of New England. He received the National Award in 1992, the VPP Presidents Award in 1994 and 2014, the degree of Photographic Craftsman in 1995, and VPP Honorary Life Membership in 2014.
Nancy also first got interested in photography in 1970. While a librarian at the University of North Dakota, she met Mike at a camera club, where she won many of the club's monthly competitions. She joined Mike at Mindpictures in 1984. She has trained at the New England Institute of Professional Photography, and has studied various media with regional artist, Barbara Bellows. She is also a past president of the Vermont Professional Photographers.
They have had numerous prints hang at state and regional exhibitions.
