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 B.

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 multiple documentary series, and photographs weddings, events, and families. Tarin is an entrepreneur, an artist, and a storyteller. Her goal is to connect this world through striking and impactful imagery.

Under Tarin;s instruction, you will not only have confidence operating a DSLR camera, but how to compose imactful images and tell stories with every shot.

Tarin is an amazing teacher. Having never done anything related to photography she taught me how to use a camera and adjust the settings correctly very quickly. She is very professional and knowledgeable.
