MEET YOUR EDUCATOR

 

Karolina Ferbei - Fine Art Photographer

I moved to New Zealand in 2017 and started to photograph people in 2020.

Within less than 3 years into Portrait Photography Career I won multiple New Zealand and International Photography awards, held my own exhibition in gallery and was invited as guest photographer to participate in International Art and Photography Exhibition in India. 

I also have multiple publications in magazines and articles about my work in local media.

Through my work I help clients to believe in their beauty, restoring lost confidence and empowerment. 

I have photographed hundreds of women, making them look and feel beautiful. 

I love to create a work of art at each photo shoot, using beautiful scenes of nature and thoroughly selecting colour palette for each element in the image.

Fine Art Photography just like art demands hard work with all three - brain to create an idea, hands to implement it, and heart to connect with it and let inspiration in.

FAQs

I'm a beginner, is that ok?

Absolutely, I teach basic principles of portrait photography that are easy to follow, and editing lesson includes basic retouching which you can master first and then move to creative tools. 

I can't make all or one of those dates.

That's ok, you can watch recordings of webinars. Access to recordings will be granted for a month.

What genre of photography is this for?

During webinars, I teach portrait photography and basic techniques that can be applied to all portrait genres - maternity, family, kids and individual women portraits. 

Do you accept payments?

Due to limited spaces, I require full upfront payment. 

What do I need for the workshop?

For webinars: You will need laptop and access to internet, Photoshop, and Lightroom. You can install Zoom or connect through browser.

Do you offer refunds if I can't make it anymore?

Unfortunately, I do not offer refunds. But you can offer your ticket to another photographer. You need to notify me if you need to swap your names.

During my last Workshop, my students updated their portfolio with stunning eye-catching images,

and practised creating composition and lighting that works to advantage.
