About Me

My name is Ekaterina and I am originally from the city of Moscow, Russia.

I moved to the Netherlands in 2019 to start my studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Currently I am undergoing a program in audiovisual arts(VAV – moving image) with a focus on animation.
Before coming here I used to do graphic design related freelance works. I studied with a magnificent graphic designer who taught me valuable skills – both creative and technical.
I spent a long time working and perfecting my portfolio, and after being admitted to the academy I left Russia to pursue the dream of my life.
This is exactly how I want our lessons to feel. Free, but also serious. We will have a lot of fun learning the programs and discovering what amazing possibilities they can give you.

There is so much to learn. I can promise that this journey will be not only fruitful, but also interesting and creative!

Belén
Actress, model and filmmaker teaches and gives tricks to people who want to start on Photography.
I am an actress, model and filmmaker that have been working in the industry for a couple of years now. I know how hard it can seem to start creating material or how intimidating it can be to grab a camera for the first time and looking at that terrifying "manual" set. As a model, I can teach you how to direct and how to behave with models. As a filmmaker I can teach you about angles, techniques and composition, but mostly I strive to work with you to make you find your own style. I have knowledge in both Photoshop and Illustrator, so we can also work on that editing! My teaching method depends on every student. Depending on the level we are starting at, we will first learn about equipment needed and how to use it, then colour and composition in images, then editing. We can look into Photography and Film history if the student is interested. We will also learn about selling your work, believing in it and creating your own vision.
