Toma Kostygina is an LA-based photographer originally from Siberia. She started her photography and production career shooting in night clubs in Russia. Her goal was to capture colorful lights, properly expose guests in one frame, and accomplish it all on a small mirrorless Canon camera. With thousands of hours spent on sets and at photo studios, Toma has gained experience in everything that you need to start working with studio lights. Photography masters and artists have always been her inspiration, so she decided to take her expertise to the next level. While attending Photo classes at Santa Monica college, she mastered the creation of custom sets and thorough production. From assisting on sets such as for Coca-Cola, Italian Vogue, GQ, Interview magazines, and Benefit cosmetics, she is now working with A-list photographers and magazines. Toma is always in search of new ways to enhance her skills and creativity. You will find her work bright, colorful, and conceptually rewarding, as illustrated in her collaboration on the Grammy-nominated Sofi Tukker or David Bowie Tribute.

Our dear very own Toma will show you the range of shoot possibilities that comes with creating in a space like this.
