Meet Redondo Beach Photographer: Victoria Filice

Today we’d like to introduce you to Victoria Filice.

Victoria, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I first fell in love with photography after visiting Italy as a teenager, and capturing the beauty all around me with my point and shoot camera. I took every photo class offered in high school and went on to attend Brooks Institute of Photography. I learned so much during my time there and even spent one summer in Paris with the fashion photography class. There I discovered my true passion for fashion photography.

Has it been a smooth road?
In college, I had moments of self-doubt and insecurity about my work, and it made me question if this was the right path for me. Trying to find your voice as a photographer can be very difficult, especially when you are surrounded by so many amazing photographers. It becomes hard not to compare your work to others. I had to push through the fears of failing, and I became a much stronger photographer because of it.

When you look back, can you point to a period when you wanted to quit or a period that was really frustrating?
There have been moments that I have questioned if this is the right career path for me. It is easy to think that way when things get difficult, and that giving up would be easier than persevering through the struggle. I think I enjoy proving myself wrong too much to let myself give up. A quote that has stuck with me for a long time is “always look forward”. When I am struggling I have to remember that things will always get better.

What advice do you wish to give to those thinking about pursuing a path similar to yours?
Try not to compare your work to others, instead, pull inspiration from them.

Is there something you are particularly excited about or working towards?
I am excited about the possibilities for my career. Los Angeles has so much to offer the creative community, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me.
