Something that I have always been passionate about has been teaching. I thought I always wanted to be a teacher when I grew up...until I become a photographer. But while I was in high school and college, I was also a gymnastics coach. I have a love and a desire to see people flourish and learn. I cannot think of anything better than combining my love for photography with my love for teaching. I want to teach you. I want to take you under my wing and help you grow as an artist.
But here's the deal. I have worked very, very hard to find who I am as an artist. It was a painfully beautiful and slow process. My art is a reflection of me. When you book a mentoring session with me or you attend one of my workshops, whether that is online or in-person, I don't teach you how to be me. I teach you how to be you. I give you the tools to find who that is and how to embrace it and let your art reflect that. No two people see the same thing. I don't want you to see the world the way I see, but see it for yourself. You are amazing, and I will show you that. Every photographers needs are different. I do not have a "one-size-fits-all" education platform. If you have an interest in learning from me, please email me at kalarathphotography @ gmaildotcom and we can discuss your education goals, budget and your vision.
I offer a variety of ways to learn with my guidance:
- Online workshops that take place in real time (various times throughout the year)
- Online workshops that are self-paced (year-round)
- In-person workshops hosted by educational communities and retreats (various times throughout the year)
- One on One Mentoring (year round)
- Distance learning (via Skype & Phone) (year round)
- Portfolio Critiques (year round)
