Black clients. 
We'll discuss model calls, updating your portfolio, and doing community work to make a life long impact. 

About Tomayia

Dr. Tomayia Colvin has been photographing high school seniors for more than eight years and was a classroom teacher for more than 10 years. She’s been an educator on Creative Live, WPPI, Imaging USA, United hosted by Showit, and a host of others. 


She has been featured in articles in Professional Photography Magazine, Rangefinder Magazine, ShootProof, Black Enterprise, local newspapers, and radio stations. 


She is also the founder of Tomayia Colvin Education, an online photography community created to empower photographers of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and be a safe haven of inclusion and diversity. 


Additionally, she’s the proud founder and host of The Photo Cookout that celebrates black photographers and photographers of color. 


She’s also the mom of two dynamic little people and is often busy shuffling kids from track practice to karate tournaments. Her doctoral studies included study of the success of Black women photographers, educational and organizational leadership, and community. 

What Others Are Saying! 

I recommend Tomayia Colvin Education to all who want to be endowed with Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding of Photography both in front of and behind the camera.
