Finding the right mentor is a critical choice in the furtherance of your photography education. There are dozens of teachers out there that drill technique into you. But that won’t teach you to see and feel as a photographer. You need someone who will motivate, guide and instruct you, but more importantly, you need someone who will inspire and foster your creative side. Gulnara is that someone. She is immensely knowledgeable, and very generous with that knowledge. She will put you at ease with any doubts you have about your abilities, but will also push you outside of your comfort zone, which is essential to your growth as a photographer and artist. Her work is beautiful, compassionate, and even humorous. She possesses these qualities, as well. If you are serious about developing your skills and evolving creatively as a photographer who “sees” and “feels”, Gulnara will get you there. She is a gift of a mentor.

I had the incredible fortune to work with Gulnara one-on-one in a private 2-day workshop in NYC. She welcomed me into her home, took time to ascertain my goals and dreams and then set to work to help me make them happen. She is skilled, focused, and knowledgeable in every aspect of photography. She pushed me out of my comfort zone with a kind but firm approach that was perfect for me. I highly recommend working with her. She transformed my approach to photography and gave me the confidence to be fearless.

I just want to thank you so much for everything you did for me at Foundation Workshop!
Throughout the day I kept hearing from all of the other students that you were such a great teacher and so helpful. Working with you was huge for me. I was feeling lost and ready to give up. And then You gave me a guide on how to approach strangers. It was a real turning point for me. I especially appreciate that you eased me into it, but wouldn’t let me get out of it! I REALLY needed that!
You helped me see beauty in a place where I wasn’t expecting to see it. I was so wrapped up in my head that I didn’t notice all the beauty and connection until you started pointing it out. Luckily, so far, I’m still noticing it everyday
— Bridget Eldridge, photographer
I highly recommend to everyone to invest on one of her workshop and learning from one of the best photojournalists of the industry: i promise you will not be disappointed.
