My name is Vicky Heileman Pink. I am a native Houstonian, and a minority small business owner with decades of experience working with photography and the media. I created VP Productions to help individuals, businesses and organizations by providing quality and professional photography and video documentation services. Over the years I have worked with a variety of entities on projects including political campaigns, broadcast television and documentaries. Early in my career, I produced a documentary called “The Jaybirds of Fort Bend County,” that aired on PBS and is now part of the Kendelton Historical Society. I later earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications degree and Radio-Television from the University of Houston, and an Associates of Arts degree in English from West Los Angeles College. I am the Director of Operations of the Coalition of Community Organizations in Houston, TX, a member of East End Rotary Club, currently serving on the board of the Houston Association of Black Journalists as VP of Photojournalism, apart of the University of Houston Black Alumni Association and a co-chair of Lectors at St. Francis of Assisi Church. Additionally, I am also a member of Sisters in the Spirit, The Core (Bo Porter), the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce, the North East Cultural Arts Council and the East End Chamber of Commerce. Recently, I participated in the University of Houston S.U.R.E. Program, I hold a Certificate of Achievement from the Houston Area Urban League’s Small Business Development University, a certificate of achievement from the Climate Reality Leadership Training, a certificate of completion from MAPPS Environmental Health Leadership Training, and a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee to name a few. My work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Modern Luxury, The Houston Chronicle, Texas Small Business Magazine, Culture Map, Paper City, Ebony and others. My work has allowed her to travel nationally and abroad. Notably, in 2012, I was the hired photographer for a reception in River Oaks with President Barack Obama. However, I am most proud to be a mother of my two daughters, son and two grandchildren. My plans for future endeavors include creating historic documentaries on disadvantaged communities and informing the public about Sickle Cell Disease and other important issues prevelant in the African American Community.
