Exhibition Photography Testimonial

“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.”

Magazine Cover Illustration Testmonial

“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.”

– Mircea Pricajan, witer, translator, editor. Founder of the Suspense Review Magazine and co-Owner at Ka-Tet Press

 

Portrait Photography Testimonial

“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 & book reviewer

 

Family Session Photography Testimonial

“Cristina did an outstanding job! The results from our latest outdoors family session are outright spectacular. She managed to capture the uniqueness of that time of day by masterfully using the natural light in contrast to the unusual environment (an agricultural field during summer, at dusk!) and focusing on us at just the right moment. The photo album she made for us is a true eye-catcher and a long lasting centerpiece on our coffee-table. We look forward to documenting more of our family memories with Cristina.”

Linda Rettegi, mother

Book Cover Design Testimonial

“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

Website Re-Design Testimonial

“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.”
