Starr's Classes

Starr teaches photography classes and workshops building on creative composition, lighting and camera skills for teens/tweens and adults. She incorporates lots of hands-on learning, introduction to natural and artificial lighting scenarios, and includes real life model experience when it fits the curriculum. Starr also offers 1-on-1 tutoring for learning camera basics, lighting, portraits, and more for those needing a more personalized learning experience. In addition to photography classes, Starr also teaches Kiln Fused glass workshops for beginners.

Tapping into the beauty and uniqueness of forgotten, abandoned and often overlooked subjects is at the core of Starr's art and the way in which she interacts in the world.

She has degrees in Commercial Photography and Sociology and has been a professional portrait photographer for over 15 years. Starr has experience in various types of photography such as weddings, families, events, headshots and more; however her favorite clients to work with include High School seniors, teens/tweens, people with Special needs and small business entrepreneurs. When Starr works with clients she strives to capture their true essence by helping to empower them and increase the confidence in themselves that they may initially not believe they possess.

Starr was nominated as one of the Top 100 Senior Photographers by The Senior Style Guide in 2015 & 2016. In 2019, Starr began teaching photography workshops and classes. In 2021, she began teaching Photography Art Camps for teens with the City of Milton and is currently helping to build their photography offerings.

Starr grew up in Southern California and has lived outside of Atlanta since college. She is married and the mom of a 16 year old man-child. When she's not taking art classes you can find her searching for treasures: along the river for glass, combing the seashores for shells, collecting "trash" along the roads or roaming in thrift stores. She is currently trying her hand at gardening and learning about edible plants.
