In her 18 years of experience she has photographed everything from weddings & humanitarian documentary work to political campaigns & portraiture.

Arnica's workshop blew my mind! Her boundless creativity, tireless energy and heartfelt desire to teach us everything she possibly could within 3 days had me in constant awe. Words cannot describe the depth of my respect for this woman. We went morning till night and each moment delivered another golden nugget of actionable changes I could make to be a better photographer, and business owner. I will 100% invest in this workshop again.

Arnica’s workshop is the best money I have ever spent to improve my photography skills and work on my business. Having a chance to have hands on experience, setting up lights, creating sets, shooting incredible models, talking about business and how to work smarter, doing some self inventory and sharing with the amazing group of photographer students in attendance was truly amazing , and then having Arnica review images we take as soon as they pop up on our screen was the icing on the cake. Arnica has a deep understanding of lighting and posing, but it is her passion for her work, her incredible eye for what looks good, and her fluid and organic but thorough approach to teaching, that made this just incredible. I can’t wait to go again. I know that my photography will take on new life!!! I came home feeling inspired and have already made changes to my business. Highly recommended!
