about Stephanie

Stephanie Johnson is a self-taught creative photographer, who is primarily focused on Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and creative photography techniques as a form of artistic expression.  She has honed her skill and evolved her artistry by getting out to ‘do the work’ as often as possible.  She brings an inter-connected, creative, and intuitive approach to her photography-as-art to visually express the essence of light, color, form, line, texture, mood, and emotion through the various in-camera creative techniques of ICM.    

Stephanie has a Bachelor of Arts degree and graduate work in English Literature and has always had a very strong emotional connection to art, in all its various forms.  She has a deep passion for creating uniquely artistic images by working with camera movement to reveal the essence of how any given scene feels for her in the moment, and as a creative photographer, she is always seeking to push the boundaries of her own artistry, as well as to encourage and inspire others to do the same by seeing things differently through the artistic lens of ICM, ME ICM, and creative photography techniques.  

Stephanie is the Founder, Creator, and Publisher of ICM Photography Magazine (ICMPhotoMag), a first-of-its-kind e-magazine dedicated solely to featuring ICM photography.  Stephanie also leads on-location ICM workshops in the US and the UK in collaboration with various creative photographers through ICMPhotoMag Workshops and, as an instructor for Santa Fe Workshops she leads ICM workshops for SFW both online and on-location in Santa Fe and in Mexico.  She collaborates with various other online learning communities and camera clubs to share her passion, techniques, and knowledge of ICM.  She is also an ICM/creative photography mentor and the founder of the ICMPhotoMag Network continuous learning online community.
