Wendi Schneider’s sensual photographs are often recognized for their focus on detail, grace of composition and delicate balance between the real and the imagined. Her images are inspired by a background in painting and art history combined with the lush beauty of her southern heritage. A major contributor to the original Victoria magazine, she is also known for her hand-painted flower images, nearly 100 book cover photographs, and for designing, photographing and producing the recreation of the 1901 Picayune’s Creole Cook Book for Times-Picayune’s sesquicentennial.

Raised in Memphis, she studied art history at Stephens in Missouri, then graduated in painting and art history from Newcomb in New Orleans. Schneider began making photographs in 1983 as reference for her figurative oil paintings. Enamored with photography, but missing the sensual qualities of paint, her early work consists of hand-painted black and white and sepia photographs, with layers of transparent oil paint delicately applied to create a heightened reality.

Wendi moved to New York in 1988, and worked primarily in fine art, editorial and advertising. Since moving to Denver in 1994, she has been commissioned for fine art, editorial, advertising, annual report and portrait photography and design assignments. She is passionately engaged in wildlife, nature and figurative photography and pigment printing with gold, silver and copper leaf and metallic substrates. She is working environmentally with rescue organizations, preserves and zoos, incorporating fundraising for education and conservancy organizations.

Her photographs have been exhibited internationally and are included in collections around the world. They can be viewed by appointment in Denver and upon request at A Gallery for Fine Photography / New Orleans and the Richter Gallery in Nashville.
