About Tara

Hello Students.

Here we are in Silicon Valley, a place alive with technology and natural beauty. I have almost 20 years experience as a photographer and visual artist. I've worked in the traditional darkroom and now the digital darkroom using Lightroom and Photoshop as my primary tools. I own a freelance photography business and photograph people and create fine art with digital photographs and Photoshop. I have a certificate in Digital Media Design and have received awards for my work. I have experience teaching photography to children and adults.

Whether you want to learn about how to work a camera, a computer program, or complete a creative project, I can help. I will always listen to your goals and advise a workflow that will fit you best. Let's start right where you are and see where we can go together.

When I am not photographing people or making new designs I can be found hiking with my dog and young son, working in the garden, or learning something new!

Very empathetic and kind tutor, Great listener

It is a great pleasure to write a feedback about the work I did with Tara. Tara and I worked on a video project illustrating the challenges in the health care environment and how to transform the environment into a healing environment. A picture is worth a thousand words, and one could imagine the impact a multimedia presentation might have which appeals to us even at a deeper level. Tara demo
