I am currently working in the industry as a freelance photographer as well as a retail staff photographer. I have been photographing for 6+ years now. My focus is people! Portraiture I focus on includes weddings, headshots, lifestyle, fashion, and photojournalism/documentary. My main love is storytelling. I believe if you have a medium such as photography, storytelling is not only fitting - but also necessary. I will teach you how to create a story with lighting, techniques, angles, posing, and context. We will be able to focus on our sitter and bring out the most authentic imagery that fits them and you as an artist.

About Tarin

I am a daydreamer, storyteller, and artist. I am a chaser of light, adventure, and the little things in life. I am a collector of all things quirky, antique, and vintage. Tarin has been photographing since 2012. Specializing in portrait imagery with a photojournalistic feel, Tarin has created mul

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well during this time of isolation and social distancing.

My name is Tyler Lockett, and I'm a professional illustrator with over 15 years of experience in design, illustration, and concept art for video games. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York City.

I have done conceptual art for high profile game titles such as "Neverwinter Nights", "American Mcgee's Grimm!", and I was a senior concept artist on "Alice; Madness Returns." for Xbox360. I'm currently hard at work on my first Illustrated novel, which will have over 200 illustrations, and will be available at the end of the year.

My lessons are completely flexible, and adaptable to your personal goals. However, here are my recommendations.

For BEGINNERS I recommend building up your foundation skills; shapes, silhouettes, values, composition, lighting, color, line work, texture, etc. We could pick subject matter that you ...

"I had a huge coincidence by having a lesson with Kai in the Bay Area. He and I have the same point of view about learning drawing that helps me to understand his tips and instructions. It is a true pleasure to be his student, I was feeling like I’m detective who’s seeking for tips and clues and try to transfer all of that onto the paper. Also he is really good by explaining how to see simple shapes and figures in every object, how to extend an imaginary line and keep angles which did and will help me to draw more consciously. Highly recommend him anyone who wants to improve its drawing and painting skill."
