Sharing Knowledge and a Passion for Photography
We love seeing our graduates share their expertise with others. VanArts is pleased to give a shout-out to our own alumnus Kristina Zambrano, who led a masterclass at the 2018 Europe Photography Convention in London, UK on January 11th. Originally from Venezuela, Kristina runs her own award-winning business as a pet photographer.
To an eager audience of professional photographers and new graduates, she spoke about how her team works on photo shoots, followed by a live demonstration (with the assistance of a cocker spaniel named Bella). Participants were split into teams to try their hand at re-creating a pet portrait in an interactive, hands-on masterclass. You can catch a short glimpse of the session through this live video on Facebook. The convention itself was run by The Societies of Photographers, the fastest-growing worldwide association comprised of eight internationally recognized photographic organizations.
Kristina’s own photography business K9 Studio Photography, which focuses on lifestyle, advertising/editorial and conceptual pet photos, has won her several honors and awards, including a WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) Honor of Excellence Silver Award and the Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem by the Chair of British Columbia & Yukon Council. She’s been featured on magazine covers, multiple publications and media, and belongs to several professional photography organizations herself.
Congratulations Kristina! Keep doing us proud!
