Victoria Medina began her artistic journey when she picked up her first camera at the tender age of six. She attended Lehman College and Marymount University London Center where she used her photographic skills to shoot head shots and live events while studying acting, writing and theater with the illustrious faculty of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, graduating with a degree in Theater and Music.
Her adventurous spirit inspired her to travel and she has visited cities throughout Europe, the United States and Canada, performing in a variety of theater productions and photographing individual and family portraits, music and dramatic performances, movie industry events, celebrities, landscapes, architecture, nature, and creating fine art prints. For Victoria it is all about capturing the spirit of the person, event, or business. Her many clients include the Hollywood Film Festival, New York Women In Film and Television, and Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz. She has also photographed several celebrities including Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Bob Hope, Tina Fey, Christine Baranski, and Bill & Hillary Clinton.
In 2008 Victoria opened her on-line art gallery, Numina Images Gallery, and in 2009 she had her first successful live exhibition in New York City featuring The American Spirit exhibit.
In 2012 Victoria started a new initiative and opened up a commercial photography enterprise called simply victoriamedinaphotography.com. This new endeavor brings together her many years of experience working with clients in many different fields, including performing artists, entertainment industry professionals, entrepreneurs and business people.
In 2013 Victoria’s gallery was rebranded as Victoria Medina Gallery, and it currently features several exhibits, including the American Spirit exhibit.
Victoria has also recently become a best-selling author with the publication of her book One Nation, One Mission, One Promise, which marries both her photographic art and poetry and prose talents under one umbrella.
