About Marci Lanois
Marci Lanois is a retired technology teacher who is passionate about photography. Through photography, she can fulfill her love of wildlife, nature, architecture, creativity, technology and learning.
Throughout her childhood, Marci's parents encouraged her to pursue her dreams and follow her passions. Marci was the one in her family that was in charge of taking photos on family vacations...just the beginning of her love of photography. She became interested in technology during her teaching career and earned her masters in technology education in the late 1980s. Even after retirement, she taught many digital camera courses to retired people.
Marci is an award-winning photographer. She became serious about photography in 2012. What really motivated her was winning first place in a "Pewaukee at Night" Photography contest. Between 2013 and 2015 she won many first place ribbons at the Wisconsin State Fair Photography contest. Her work has also won best of month awards from the Universe of Color Photography, a facebook group that has thousands of members from around the world. In 2021, she was one of the featured photographers and featured sidebar photographers in the Sax-Zim Bog Wild calendar. Some of her photos will be featured in the 2024 Sax-Zim Bog Calendar as well. Marci took first place in The Nature Conservancy of Wisconsin's 2021 photo contest. She also took first place in the 2022 Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin's photo contest. That photo became the cover photo for the organization's magazine in the Spring of 2023. This year she was asked to be a guest judge for the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin's 2023 photo contest. Two of Marci's butterfly photos have been featured in the Wisconsin Entomology Society's newsletters this year (May, 2023 and October, 2023). Marci will be traveling to Africa in October of 2023 to photograph African wildlife and perhaps some landscapes and sunrises/sunsets.
Today, she spends many, many enjoyable days roaming (mostly) Wisconsin and the surrounding states. She created REDHEAD Photography early in 2019. Since then, she has been focusing on creating and selling her beautiful fine art photography.
