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

Learning to draw with the GusGraphics Method is a unique and very effective way to develop accurate and precise rendering skills. As a State Certified Vocational Commercial Art Instructor with more than forty years of experience teaching drawing and painting classes, I have developed a specific technique that works for students of all ages. From youngsters to seniors! I call it "The GusGraphics Method". Students will learn the basics in ten hours of online instruction and will come away from that experience with the ability to make accurate, precise shaded half-tone pencil drawings from reference photographs. Any photographs, including portrait drawings of family and friends.

"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."

He has also begun teaching technique as my daughter gets older. She has taken lessons with him for 4 years and has really improved and become very serious about art. She was even chosen for a citywide art competition which I attribute to his teaching."
