Carmina holds an MFA in Photography from San Jose State University and a BA in Cultural Anthropology from CSU Monterey Bay. She is a photography instructor at Cabrillo Community College in Aptos and the local teaching artist for Pablove Shutterbugs, an educational photography program for children living with cancer.
