Mickie is an extremely sought-after regional photographer. She has been hired to photograph musicians like Bela Fleck, My Morning Jacket, Ben Sollee, Jack White, Rachel Grimes, etc. for album covers and magazine editorials. She has worked for SPIN magazine and has been an integral part of Louisville Magazine’s artistic team for many years. For her work at Louisville Magazine, she has won several awards from the Society of Professional Journalism including this years first place for feature photography.
In addition to being an accomplished commercial photographer, she is also well-known for her own independent work; among other exhibitions, she has had a solo exhibition of her photographs at 21C Museum and is in their private collection.
Mickie loves teaching and has taught photography workshops at The University of Louisville, Spalding University, JCC, The Southern Seminary, Union Collage, Zoom Group Studio Works for the developmentally disabled, and Assumption High School. She also taught at Ivy Tech, where she was offered the position of head of the photography department.
Mickie understands a digital photography lab and classroom, as she is familiar with the lighting, shooting, editing, and printing of digital photography (she is experienced with Photoshop, Lightroom, etc.). She also has a passion for alternative processes in photography, such as cyanotype, van dyke, and photo transfers, and has experience with teaching workshops about these methods to children teens and adults.
On a personal note: I’ve followed Mickie’s career for many years and I regard her as one of the most talented photographers in the Louisville scene. Her name and work is well known and respected among the art community. She’s also a very nice person.
