I'm Sandra. I've worked with hundreds of photographers and designers – from beginners to the best in the business – and in print, online and video formats. I've helped them find their unique route to achieve their potential. I'm quick, honest, easy to understand. I inspire you, I show you steps and help you grow. I can certainly help with technical issues but my focus is on helping you see more – in your images, in your own ability ad in what is possible for you. In teaching college classes, my main student comment is consistent: "I will never look at anything the same way again."

About Sandra

If you just want to learn software programs or camera operation, go elsewhere. But if you want to learn to SEE and become a true photographer, Sandra is the coach to work with. Although software and hardware are certainly part of our discussions, software and cameras don't make pictures – you, your

There are many people out there that can teach you to snap a picture, but Sandra will help you learn the process of how to create a photograph. That is her strength, along with a gentle touch and her vast experience of working with some of the best photographers in the business. I strongly recommend you reach out to her if you wish to become a better photographer.

I had the great opportunity to work with Sandra. As my photo coach and editor, her insightful suggestions to the way I was approaching my work helped me sharpen my photographic skills and storytelling. Working with Sandra was all about honing my strengths as a photographer but also opening my eyes to other possibilities of storytelling and the craft of photography that helped me overcome my inexperience when creating a photograph.

If your pictures aren’t packin’ the impact you thought (or hoped for) when you pressed the shutter, or, if you can’t figure out how to move to the next level, contact Sandra. I did. And, working with her is a very special and helpful experience.
While working with hundreds of photographers and their images, Sandra has honed an acute ability to spot the potential in you and your pictures. At the same time, she can clearly guide you on how to improve your vision and elevate your photography in a fun, friendly and nonjudgmental way.
Fulton
Think about it this way. Sandra has had dinner with Ansel Adams. She's worked in the White House three times as a picture editor. She was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize. She loves photography and she loves to look at photographs. And most importantly she loves to work with photographers regardless of their "level". You will learn about your photographs. You will learn about yourself. But don't be intimidated by her background. She is NOT one of those photography guru experts who try to motivate by tearing you down. She builds on where you are as a photographer. Instead of telling you that a photograph is no good she might tell you that "you should be doing more of this type of photograph." Whatever it costs to learn from Sandra is cheap. What you will learn is priceless.

This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing.

She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success.

"I've been fortunate to know some rare and phenomenally reputable Artists in my personal circle and Mr. Ohashi ranks as such. It's even rarer to find someone of this skill to also be a gifted instructor to adults and art teacher to children. For my husband's 50th birthday, I approached Mr. Ohashi after deciding to do a special family art project with our two daughters ages 4 and 6. The entire afternoon was flawless. From set up to clean up, each step of our creative process was relaxed and fun. He is also an experienced and gifted children's art teacher and all they could ask when he left was, "When is he coming back to do more projects with us?" We live in such an age where lasting memories are replaced with hurried instant gratification. We had a special dinner for my husband but those paintings we did with our small girls, will remain on our wall for, what I know will be generations. Not only that, we've been complimented how professional it looks and because we did it in the style of Donald Judd, it really pops out. You've no idea how many people have asked about our family collage work of art when we set up my daughter's virtual school sessions against that wall during the COVID shutdown. To have access to art instruction from someone with this level of caliber is fortuitous to say the least. I can't wait to plan another project."
