What makes Deep Living unique? With her medical background as a Naturopathic Doctor and expertise in photography and art therapy, Natiya Guin offers her clients the bridge between the duality of the medical and creative arts world. With the knowledge of the body and movement as a yoga teacher, the inherent wisdom of how to treat the root causes of health obstacles as a naturopathic doctor, and the creative, healing eye of a photographer and art therapist, Natiya supports clients in finding their whole health and achieving their vision on a photoshoot. She makes your beauty, empowerment, and whole-being come alive and even offers skincare and supplements to support in preparation for photo day and ideal health every day.
Being a photographer and being a Naturopathic Doctor are two of Natiya's life passions. These worlds are actually deeply intertwined and set her apart in the healing and creative arts space. Being a doctor makes her a better photographer- she uses wellness and healing to empower her clients to feel whole, nourished, and beautiful from the inside out. Being a photographer and art therapist makes her a better doctor- photography and the arts can be powerful tools in the toolkit of healing on a holistic level. Adding to her unique skillset and vision, her training as a yoga teacher provides another healing tool and a vast depth of knowledge for how the body moves and looks- the key to capturing a beautiful image! Whatever healing and support you seek on a physical and emotional level, Deep Living provides the tools you need to feel empowered and whole.

Natiya is an internationally published health and fitness photographer whose images have appeared on over a dozen magazines ( OM Yoga, Yoga Journal, and People). Natiya believes that while physical beauty and strength are essential to the photos she creates, it is the inner beauty, and the balanced healthy lifestyle of her models that truly makes them shine.
One of the main reasons Natiya has a "Arts" division of Deep Living (i.e Deep Living Studios) as well as a "healing" division (i.e Deep Living Skincare and Wellness) is because she sees that people become more confident in their health, their careers, and in their entire lives when they prioritize their health by seeking out ways to be be expressive and prioritize self-care. That is why it is called Healing Arts; we need both healing and arts!
When Natiya is not planning an international production or creating a new ethically sourced health product inspired by her patients, she can be found surfing with her kids.

Natiya creates a relaxed environment where the real you can be explored and photographed. Her playful spirit is infectious and it produces unique and beautiful shots. She has a way of shooting people in nature that is no less than stunning.
Linda Sorkin- OM Cover Model
Natiya is a beautiful human being and stellar photographer. I know this to be true, since I was fortunate enough to work with her. Natiya clearly saw something in me I could not detect. She has this soft unique way about her when she photographs. She was welcoming and oozed with kindness, which immediately put me at ease. When she combines her soft demeanor with her acute eye for style, she emanates immense creativity as a photographer. As a result, she captured just the right shot for the cover of April’s issues of OM Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine.

Natiya shot some awesome photographs that I used for my Thai Massage courses and instructional materials. Her pictures captured the essence of the moment beautifully. She came up with creative solutions to issues we has in the space and with the light, and delivered amazing results.
