Kathryne Johnson

While earning a degree in Media Arts and Animation, my passion for photography and editing started. My fascination with capturing moments led me to delve deeper into photography, photo manipulation and teaching as I become a Photoshop tutor for my peers.

I'm driven by the joy of witnessing photographers and editors achieve their goals. I like to create one-on-one sessions with unique learning tools to fit each individual's aspirations.

I've been shooting for over 15 years and it never stops being fun. I shoot landscapes, wildlife, portrait, product, astro, and lifestyle photography.
