Tatiana was born in NY and raised in Barcelona. Before getting into photography she studied philosophy in Montpellier, American literature and filmmaking in Barcelona, followed by journalism studies at UCLA. She speaks several languages.

While writing for publications in the US and Spain, she discovered photography and was seduced by the infinite possibilities provided by f-stops, shutter speeds and film emulsion. "I fell in love with catching the "moment". Making people look beautiful was initially easy for me and drew me in , but capturing the "essence" was the real challenge." A few years back, after much resistance,Tatiana turned to digital picture taking and if was instant infatuation.

She specialized in portrait photography shooting for publications in Europe and the U.S. Some of the magazines include Vogue, GQ, The London Telegraph, People En Español. She has completed advertising campaigns for Merck Pharmaceutical.
Her latest work is showing us panoramic landscapes, far away destinations like Antartica and the Namibian desert. She combines her love for travel, landscape photography and philosophy in these images of fluctuating and unstable ice sculptures and moving sand dunes. "They are here now always changing like the continuous passage of time and our human influence on nature."

She is also producing “WIP Flash” a photography group show promoting Women in Photography, curating art events and will soon open a gallery in Paia, Maui.
