Tashia Peterman Bio
With a strong desire to create beautiful images, Tashia began her photographic career in 1999.
After learning how to capture images with her camera and lens, and wanting to take her images to a higher level, she began studying and working with Photoshop, developing her retouching, color correction, enhancement, and compositing skills which have helped her earn over 35 merits and awards for the images she has created.
She has helped other photographers earn merits of their own using her retouching and enhancement skills under their art direction. Tashia’s artistic skills have been sought after by other Master photographers throughout California.
Tashia has also taught workshops for Photographers through local, state, and national associations.
