ARE YOU CONSIDERING A LOCATION PHOTOSHOOT BUT CAN'T DECIDE WHERE AND WHEN?
Well, here are a few ideas to whet your appetite:

Firstly, the best times of the day to photograph people outdoors are 1-2 hours after sunrise before sunset - those are called the magical hours of the day, during which your images will have that extra warmth about them. Perfect for couples at sunset as an engagement shoot or creating stunning photographs demonstrating love between two people.



This time of a day also works wonders for photographing children in bluebells, picking dandelions, running free in Lavender fields, walking through poppy fields or any beautiful gardens full of flowers. National Trust properties are often worthy of visit for such occasions, but they may occur entrance fee, so please bear this in mind when booking your next photoshoot.

ON THE DAY - SETTING THE EXPECTATIONS…

So, what can you expect on the day of the photoshoot? Call me a relaxed individual and that's a good thing right? But make no mistake - I will have taken a considerable amount of time to prepare for the day beforehand. This will have included a thorough chat with you about your likes, dislikes, your ‘must haves’, poses, clothing, locations etc. etc. etc. because if it’s important for you to hire a professional, then it’s certainly even more important for me to come up with trumps!

One question, I hear most and I thought I’d answer it here and then (as we are on the subject of setting the expectations…) “Can you make me really beautiful and lose my crow’s feet, double-chin, my freckles, birthmarks….?” The answer is yes I can! But I generally suggest a bit of make-up before the photoshoot as that tends to work most of the time. Voila – problem solved! 🙂

IMAGE EDITING

Just a few years ago it was almost a taboo to even mention that you had touched up your images. Times have changed since then...now you find photographers almost shouting out loud about their photoshopping skills. In this digital era, good image editing skills are a must, so I am happy to to say that I've been an avid Photoshop user from it's very early years, since 1997 and I've also had the opportunity to teach the wonders you can do with it. And to be able to improve on my skills and share my knowledge, I have also been contributing to online forums for Photoshoppers & professional photographers sharing tips and knowledge and of course, taking part of the regular photoshopping challenges.

Testimonials

  • AMY,

    A while ago, Kerto took my son and I to a beautiful bluebell wood to take our photos. We had such a lovely time! My son is 2 and not the most co-operative of toddlers, but Kerto was incredibly patient and the whole shoot was very relaxed. The photos were gorgeous and it was so hard to choose a favourite! Kerto really knows her stuff and is very versatile in her styles of shooting photos and use of locations and lighting etc. She had already photographed our sons christening in Sep 2015 and we've just booked her to photograph our wedding in May 2018!

  • Natasha,

    "Kerto is such a talented, creative, full of passion and ideas photographer. Every photo is a masterpiece, love them all! Couldn't be happier with the results and will definitely be using her services again. Thank you Kerto!"

  • Safiya,

    "Kerto took the most amazing photos of my daughter, I found it hard to choose my favourite. She was very flexible and kept my daughter entertained with props, the whole experience will be long remembered and I would recommend her services."

  • Oxana,

    "Thank you for amazing pictures, we really enjoyed it, Malena wants to go back there for more, she said! I will definitely post lots of these on my FB and recommend you to my friends. You are so good!"

  • Maria,

    "Kerto is such nice person and a big professional, we're so lucky we met her one day. Her photos are incredibly expressive, Kerto feels the light, she just literally catches the play of sun rays and shades and probably the wind and knows how to turn it into the magic you can see on her photos. I felt very easy and relaxed during the photo shoot because of Kerto's easy-going personality. Thank you so much, Kerto, it's real pleasure to deal with you!"
