About Kasia


They’re about freedom. Passion. Artistry. And the power of self-expression.

Like you, I’m an artist. I’m passionate about creating personal, meaningful and captivating artwork. I love the freedom of the medium, as it allows - and perhaps encourages - unexpected moments that are both surprising and delightful. Your vision is unique, and my goal is to assist you on your path to realize your artistic dreams. It’s my mission to support and nourish your talent with the tools necessary to take your photography to the next level. Sharing my experience and helping you develop your visual language helps me evolve as a teacher and enriches me as a human being. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to interact with people all over the world who share the same passion as me. It’s honestly my greatest thrill and source of fulfilment to foster the growth and development of the DAC community of photographers.

Real Students, Real Results

We love helping photographers improve their skills

"Best theoretical explanation of how channels underly luminosity masks. It has made all of the videos and courses I have watched suddenly make sense. The first few sessions are just what I needed to do more than watch videos. I expect to be able to use luminosity masks effectively by the end of this course."

Phillip Ziegler

"Kasia Zmokla is a very gifted teacher and educator. the course is build up perfectly and she always repeat the important stuff again and again. She is working very logically with the pictures and explain why and how she will proceed. Her understanding of photoshop is high so she can explain complicated task in a simple way for everybody to understand. Working with luminosity mask is a powerful tool and I can't wait to start practise on my own work. Only cons, I can say about this is that there are a little to many word. please take a little longer breaks between sentence, vary your tone of voice and maybe cut back on repeating everything. Thank you for your great educating - it is a pleasure to follow your courses."

"Luminosity Masks is an essential technique for tone and luminosity mapping that most students don't know about. Venture into this course to grasp an in depth concept of this technique, which can be use to obtain very precise selections out of your images.. And of course, Kasia is probably the best instructor around for teaching you this technique. Extensive knowledge and high quality instructions define her into the great teacher she is. I recommend this course to anyone."

If there’s anything that I hope you get from DAC beyond technical skills, it’s a profound sense of freedom. Freedom to express your artistic vision, to experience and to grow. Through our work together, I encourage your curiosity and evolution as an artist.

In fact, this is why I launched DAC. While I’ve got loads of experience teaching online classes on some of the biggest online educational platforms including Udemy, Amazon Prime Video and Pluralsight, I dreamed of offering my students a unique, tailored learning experience — and so, DAC was born.

Here you have the freedom to watch the videos online, or download them to view offline at your convenience in order to get the support you need to hone your craft. I also fully encourage you to ask questions! I truly love hearing from you and am happy to help you in any way I can on your journey to becoming an accomplished photographer. So please, start or join discussions, chat and leave comments.

DAC teaches you not just how to make adjustments in Photoshop, but why the work matters. I’ll also share with you efficient shortcuts and demystify complex techniques so you can easily and effectively get the professional results you desire.

You’ll also get to work hands-on with my own photographic materials, not random stock images. I really do eat, sleep and breathe photography and adventure, travelling solo to incredible but brutal places like Nepal and the Himalayas to tell my visual stories.

In other words, I don’t just preach about the value of pursuing freedom and inspiration for your work — I practice it. I hope that working hands-on with my photos will spark your creativity and assist you in developing your own signature style.




A born-and-raised Polish girl with a passion for artistic self-expression and adventure, I trained at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in 2003. Photography has been my medium of choice for 20 years, starting in darkrooms and now, in the digital space. Curious to see my personal work? Go ahead and visit https://zmokla.com. I am a featured photography skills teacher on several prominent online educational platforms and am thrilled that over 70,400 students from 183 countries around the world have joined my courses and developed their photography skills with me. It’s a great honor and delight to be engaged in this work — and it’s the best way I know of to make friends on all seven continents! As you can probably tell, I’m an obsessive learner who spends time watching, reading, photographing, editing, creating and selling educational courses.


Thank you for taking the time to visit. I’m happy we’re connected and I’m excited for the journey ahead.
