My name is Kasia Zmokla and I am very excited that you are reading this!

I teach in the Digital Art area and I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training, so below is some of my background in the Digital Art Field.

Professional Background

I’m a fine art photographer, artist, digital publisher and instructor. My passion for nature inspires my travels and has taken me to amazing locations such as Nepal Himalayas, Thai beaches, American Rocky Mountains, Italian Dolomites, Montenegro Adriatic coastline and Albanian Alps among others. Portraiture and landscape are my favourite photography genres. When photographing at high elevations I like thinking of the process as taking portraits of the mountain’s face. Every peak has its’ own personality, its own unique and ever-changing beauty.

I perceive photography as a living path that is at the same time captivating and constantly challenging. When I photograph people I like to discover where my boundaries lie and to be surprised by what my subjects bring to the photograph. I am fascinated by subjects’ unique personalities. I search for individuals that capture my imagination. It’s an intuitive and unpredictable operation. I love the freedom of this process, as it allows, and perhaps encourages, unexpected moments to happen.

A born-and-raised Polish girl with a passion for artistic self-expression and adventure. Since early childhood and during the years at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw I’ve been experimenting with different media, always relying on my imagination and creativity. I've received formal training at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and graduated as a Master of Fine Arts in 2003. Eventually photography stole my heart and it is my medium of choice since 20 years. My first captures involved film and traditional developing process in a darkroom. Over the years the tools have changed - now I work with digital cameras and post processing software to bring to life my artistic vision. I’m an obsessive learner who spends time watching, reading, photographing, editing, creating and selling educational courses.

I’m proud to have founded Digital Art Classes - an online academy, where through range of photography courses I share my experience, the tools and techniques that help others create meaningful, compelling artwork. Over 60 thousands of students from 183 countries around the world have joined my courses and develop their photography skills with me. It’s a great honor and delight to be engaged in this work.

Summary

To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about photography and Digital Art and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
