Professional photographer turned celebrated instructor, Khara Plicanic has made a name for herself teaching more than 30 courses on global platforms including Creativelive, Udemy, and Brit+Co. She’s the author of several books including, Getting Started in Digital Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots; Album Moxie: The Savvy Photographer’s Guide to Album Design and More with InDesign; and The Enthusiast’s Guide to Composition. After more than a decade as a professional wedding and portrait photographer, these days, Khara’s focused on sharing what she’s learned with others.
Known for her expertise in workflow and business strategy, along with an eye for design, Khara improves the lives of photographers and designers through better planning, better choices, and better software. She’s made an art form of simplifying even the most complicated of topics, making learning accessible to an audience of all skill levels. A veteran speaker at industry conferences including SWPP, WPPI, and ImagingUSA, she’s also proud to have a TEDx talk in her portfolio.
When Khara’s not working (or chasing her toddler), she can often be found in her studio with all things Creative Cloud, a crochet hook, sewing machine, and pile of books. She believes in good design, efficient workflow, and all things covered in chocolate.
