Hi! I’m Gerda Carina, an Estonian born fashion-portrait photographer and educator travelling the world. Currently based in Monaco.

Photography found me when I was 12 years old and has never left. I started educating myself ever since we met! I have been blessed to have worked with some of my dream clients, travel the world for projects and meet amazing people along the way.

After 15 years of experience I’ve shared my knowledge and skills through one-on-one workshops. That is now transforming itself into a 6 month online course for beginners where you build yourself a strong portfolio, learn how to represent your work and yourself, build your system that supports you financially and much more that you would need to know when pursuing this career.

My mission is to help you with the first steps in the industry so you can fly high. Whether you need help with posing, retouching, building your clientele, getting confident with putting yourself out there or business/marketing techniques – I’ve got you covered!
