What: Cuba Through One Lens - Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinadad

 

Speaker: Anastasia Tompkins

 

Anastasia Tompkins likes to say she picked up a camera 25 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. In her previous life, Anastasia grew up in Paris and NYC, got her communications degree from Northeastern University and spent many years in Advertising Sales with publications like The New York Times, Art & Auction and Sierra.

 

After having her 2 daughters in the early 90’s she felt it was time to move away from corporate life and devise a much more flexible schedule. It was time to reinvent herself as a self-employed “photoARTist”. Her business card read: “For All Things Photographic”! She took every job that came her way, figuring that each one was a learning experience! It led to fun projects like:

Creating company LOGOs

Designing wine labels

Shooting corporate brochures & events

Curating major photographic exhibits in NYC

Designing CD covers and book jackets

Photographing for Real Estate clients…just to name a few.

 

Since those early days, her “photoART’ has been published in various magazines, exhibited in Fine Art Galleries and hangs in several private and corporate collections both here and in Europe. For the past decade, Anastasia has been a member of and competed monthly in 3 NY camera clubs. She has served on the Board of Directors as Exhibits Chair and Newsletter Editor, presented her photography and post processing programs, curated countless exhibits, taught private photoshop lessons and judged both local and international competitions. Having recently moved to SC from NY, Anastasia is slowly getting her groove back and loving her new life.
