About This Class


Still life is a fun and fulfilling place to practice your photography skills. You can go at your own pace, there are no limitations as where to take your pictures and the space you require can be as small as a coffee tray (coffee trays come in different sizes of course =) It's versatile and most of all it is not as hard as it may seem, once you know a few tricks about composition, lighting and props. 

In this class I will show you step by step how to set up a beautiful still life picture.

Hi! My name is Mariya and I am photographer and illustrator based in Almaty, Kazakhstan. 

I’m that typical example of education/career choice mismatch =) I graduated with degree in Economics and then took MSc in Finance. 

I worked for two years in Big 4 company in a department of valuations. During that time I have learned how to appraise a house, a business and even an oil storage unit. Great times =)

However I always loved to do something creative. So for about 5 years now I work as a photographer. 

Two areas that I'm mostly interested in are still life and portraits. In portraits I specialize in female portraiture. 

I truly believe that photography is a skill that is important in modern life - Instagram became a regular part of our lives, many sell their items on the web, many blog and everywhere good pictures are needed. And I think, that with some knowledge and advice anyone can make good pictures. 

Currently I am also very interested in illustrations and graphic design. It’s a constant learning journey and I love to learn something new 

My preferred social media currently is Instagram (no surprise here =D)
