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

Build A Strong Foundation For Your Photography Practice.

As a photographer, you will need to master the technical basics of the camera and form an understanding of the kind of equipment you need. I will also teach something even more important (and crucial for success) than the mechanics of digital photography - how to bring your creative vision to fruition.

I'm a seasoned photographer, have been taking pictures for 5 years. I'm also a member of the Toronto Photography Alliance. My lesson places emphasis on quality visuals and experiential learning. Here's your takeaway:

- How to bring together the elements of manual mode to create an evocative image: shutter speed, aperture, and image composition
- How to choose the right gear, and develop efficient workflow.
- How to recognize and take advantage of beautiful natural light.

I will teach you to step back from your images and think critically about your motivations, process, and ultimate goals for a digital photography project. ...

I am complete photography and art newbie. Stephen did a very thorough job teaching the course and ensuring the main and important concepts had stuck. He was happy to answer any and all questions regarding photography or even specifics of the different cameras that I should buy. I feel like I now know how to use the manual mode on my camera and how to take and compose some basic artistic shots.

"Mr. Ohashi is a creative and patient art instructor. His classes are enjoyable and he is intuitive in understanding a student's potential, and how best to communicate technique with consideration to a student's unique style. If I encounter an obstacle, he is able to quickly help me understand and demonstrate with fun examples. He makes art engaging and relaxing, and is knowledgeable about the art community in New York City.

I really love Mr. Ohashi's artistic style and feels fortunate to have attended several of his oil painting shows."
