Her main focus is on lifestyle photography and Zarina has produced work for Sloane Ranger USA, the V&A, London Fashion Week, Uzbekistan Fashion Week and interior design companies.
“I find that many people are so stressed about the technicalities that they miss out on enjoying the creation process and experimenting. Good photography, like happiness, is all about simplicity.”
Zarina is a passionate photography tutor who loves helping students find their own creative voice. In class she introduces students to the basic foundations of photography and teaches them how to improve their observation. Most importantly she aims to share her enthusiasm, and encourage her students to enjoy photography as much as she does.
“Zarina was great – perfect mix of knowledgeable, friendly and fun. She was really approachable and gave great feedback.”
