The secret is out!

For nearly two centuries, painting and photography have co-existed. We are used to seeing photographs of painters at work, and there are plenty of paintings of painters painting, but paintings of photography are more unusual. Perhaps the photographers were always in such a rush that they couldn’t wait for the painter to transform their canvas…

Four Ambrotypes With A Surreal Twist

The Daguerreotype by Edgar Allan Poe THIS WORD is properly spelt Daguerréotype, and pronounced as if written Dagairraioteep. The inventor’s name is Daguerre, but the French usage requires an accent on the second e, in the formation of the compound term. The instrument itself must undoubtedly be regarded as the most important, and perhaps the…

“Cristina is very professional; her work fully met my requests. She helped structure and create a fantastic website for Artpeggios and offered great advice so as to give the best image of my teaching agency. She’s fast and efficient. Cristina is an artist who I like to work with.” – Benjamin Gasiglia, Director of Artpeggios

“Cristina’s composed, professional approach reassured me from our first meeting.
She showed immense patience as I fussed and changed my mind on countless occasions, calmly guiding me through the entire process, making valuable suggestions along the way.

Cristina has helped me create a beautifully clear and comprehensive website, propelling my work into the design world, it’s so nice to finally showcase my work through my website.

I am still able to email Cristina for support and advise which has been invaluable and have no hesitation in recommending Cristina to produce a website for you!”

Stay Curious.

Cristina Schek is creative, patient and thoughtful, and truly cares about designing the perfect website for the client. I am delighted with my new website and cannot thank Cristina enough for responding to my woolly brief with visual flair and clear guidance. I would wholeheartedly recommend her. She’s also an excellent photographer (who manages to put even the most awkward of subjects at their ease). – Ruth Cairns, Featherstone Cairns, Independent PR Consultancy

“Having a great book cover is extremely important as I believe the cover is the selling point for the book. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but let’s face the truth, people continue to choose books by their covers. Or their titles.

I am familiarised with her work from the Suspense Magazine, where she illustrates the e-zine’s cover, and I always appreciated her power to translate key words into powerful images. She was my first choice for a book cover designer and my best one. Using only a few key words, the cover was all done in under a week. The whole process from discovery, to design, to revision was a pleasurable experience. I credit the cover design to drawing in virtually every potential reader into purchasing my book. I feel like my writing was expressed perfectly in Cristina’s design.

I highly recommend Cristina Schek to all the authors looking for the best cover for their book. She harvests magic from colours and shapes.” Cezarina Anghilac, writer

“Cristina has been first class in redesigning my website. I first hired her for a photography shoot and then we discussed how the images would fit into my website. We came to the conclusion the website would need a change of design. I’m so pleased with the results and would highly recommend Cristina to anyone. She has a true passion about the work she does and is very professional, efficient, creative, helpful and great to work with. Genuinely a very easy experience for someone like myself who is not at all tech savvy.” Lindsey Gibbins, Hair & Make-up Artist

“Cristina was very professional and lovely to work with. She understood my brief straight away and delivered the look I was trying to capture in my work. She made me feel at ease on a busy and stressful day. I’ve already planned for another photoshoot with Cristina and looking forward to it.” Lindsey Gibbins, Hair & Make-up Artist

(Film/Mental) Editing = bestowing an order upon chaos

“Cristina provides an excellent service as a professional photographer for events and exhibitions. I have hired her repeatedly to photograph arts events, including private views, book launches, demonstrations, presentations and exhibitions, since 2013.

Cristina is amazing. She completely understands what is needed and how to capture natural photographs of everyone at an event. Her sensitivity to visual art and the way she can capture the atmosphere of an event are her huge asset. She has a great touch composing dynamic images, and produces a great mix of wide angle shots and details.

She is a real pleasure to work with, relaxed, calm, professional and attentive. She is efficient, turns up exactly when she says she will, and returns skilfully and thoughtfully edited images in a fast turnaround.

I can thoroughly recommend Cristina’s services as a photographer, particularly if you have an art, cultural or creative event that you need coverage for, or you need professional product or portrait photography. She is great at what she does, and is a lovely person to have around too.”

Daisy McMullan FRSA
Curator

“You can tell Cristina loves doing her job; working with her is an incredible experience as she finds original, different, stunning ways to photograph you, or your event. Constantly striving for creative artistic excellence, Cristina captures the best in every photograph she shoots, dipping into your life – without getting under your feet, to have unforgettable, heart-warming, photographs that make great memories for you. More than a beautiful photograph, Cristina’s work is a magnificent record of an occasion as she becomes your eyes – seeing, recording, and making your today a part of your history. A skilled professional, Cristina achieves the highest quality image that captures your story in remarkably unique, distinctive, head-shot portraits, that’ll make a difference to the success in your world. She’s amazing, she’s the best.” – Estelle Lovatt FRSA

“We collaborated with Cristina on several German Electronics projects. She’s an absolute professional, with great attention to detail. She had a perfect understanding of our needs whether we asked for product shots, or event photography. I highly recommend her and looking forward to further working with her.”

Rodica Boitoş, Marketing Manager at German Electronics

“Cristina is a very talented artist on the contemporary photography scene, offering a wide range of services from portraits and product photography to fine art conceptual photography. Her pictures are creative and clever, revealing complex meanings the more one looks at her artwork.
From a client’s perspective, Cristina has made me feel at ease during a recent trip to Windsor, her posed and candid portraits together with the creative landscapes capturing very well the feeling of the day.”

Teodora Totorean, Mixed Media Artist, Art Writer and Book Reviewer

“When managing an on-line magazine, it is of the utmost importance to have good quality imaging services. We at Revista de suspans (Suspense Review) chose Cristina Schek for this task, the photo artist known as Cristofor. She delivered us photographic material for two issues so far, and we’ve been more than satisfied with the finished product. She understood perfectly the concepts we required photos for, she proved a great deal of imagination in dealing with light/shadow, color/absence-of-color in the photographic material we commissioned her for. In fact, after her success with our first issue, we proposed her a separate portfolio for each new future issue.

Therefore we can recommend Cristina Schek, aka Cristofor, as a professional photographer. She is a real asset for any business; that is why we chose her as Suspense Review’s in-house photographer. We urge anyone to do the same. ”
