Are you a beginner photographer that is looking to take your skills to the next level? & you live locally? Look no further than my in person mentorship courses for beginners of all ages. 

& get mentored by ME, Gabriela Zardus!

I remember being a young adult, and being so excited while taking photographs of an event. Thinking I'm getting all the special moments and cool angles, just to look back through my images to see dark, blurry, or blown out pictures. If this has ever happened to you, and you want to learn why, or how to fix it, even how to try to fix old images in photoshop, take my friendly approach to a two week, in a personal mentorship course!

I'm here to guide you through every step of the photography process – from composition, design, posing, to lighting, and editing. With my help, you'll be able to capture stunning photography shots that showcase your unique perspective.

Friends who need some training to sharpen their photography skills can feel free to reach out to me. I have my BFA in fine art, & have covered classes and workshops ranging from graphic design, photography, to painting, art history and figure drawing. Taking this wide range of classes through college, has allowed me to have a great artistic eye that I use to establish my photography from the rest. I can help in understanding, and perfecting different editing skills in Lightroom & Photoshop. I would love to spread my knowledge of art!

We will use a two week period to sharpen your Photography skills, and allow you to gain confidence in this artistic career!



Anyone interested in learning to make handmade metal and gemstone jewelry by using traditional metal smithing techniques, feel free to get in touch! I’m all about spreading the love for art, and if I can help someone start their artistic journey, I would be honored!
