Tonya has been an educator for the past 20 years, including 16 years teaching at the university level. One of those years was spent teaching convicted felons in a medium security prison, so teaching photography for Gulf Photo Plus is a dream assignment! Tonya thoroughly enjoys helping students learn, and sets a positive and encouraging atmosphere in her classes.
Since moving to Dubai in 2007, Tonya has concentrated on her photography full time. Her assignments have been quite diverse, but her favorite subjects are travel and sport. She has a passion for creating compelling photos, and looks forward to sharing that with her students.
