After high school and taking a break to work for a couple years, I attended Gwinnett Technical College where I received an Associate’s Degree in Photography. Soon after, I dived right into the workforce working as a product photographer for a small used camera retailer. I gained a lot of life and career experience here. However, I needed to be challenged more creatively, so I decided to pursue a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography at Georgia State University. In addition to my love for photography, I also have a desire to teach and help kids find the joy of photography.
Hey there! My name is Kristina and I am excited to join the Imagine Media team as their Assistant Photographer & Retoucher Intern for Spring! My family is from Cleveland, Ohio however I am the only one in my family that was born here in Atlanta. Growing up I’ve always showed an interest in the arts. When other kids were going to gymnastics, playing soccer, tap dancing, attending ballet or karate classes, I just wanted to draw, paint, sculpt, and take pictures.
Besides creating and teaching, I love spending weekends trying all different kinds of cuisine around Atlanta’s culinary scene, baking, or volunteering at the Furkids Cage-Free Cat Shelter. I have two furkids of my own named Enzo and Remy. They have hilarious personalities like people do. Enzo can catch toys in mid-air and Remy almost has the skill of fetching down.
I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity to be an imagineer and look forward to collaborating with all the creative minds on the Imagine Media team!
