“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

“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.”
