I'm Katia, a free lance commercial and editorial photographer and stylist behind Gourmand Pixels.
You will notice foreign vibes in my writing because I am originally from Russia, residing in small town North of London for the last 13 years with my French hubby and 4 year old son.
I had a big change of perspective once I became a mom. I realised I don't want to work in the office and breathe stress every day. So I decided it was the time to explore my creativity and food just had to be in focus.
I' m learning to live a slower pace and enjoy every moment which helps me to notice beauty in every detail that I use as an inspiration in my work.
I am currently raving about countryside walks, dry textured grasses and summer galettes.
So what exactly do I do?
I specialise in Food Photography which I approach in a creative and fun way evoking emotions and telling your unique visual story. Services include menu shoots, food in preparation, food in focus, food and people, origin of food, professional lifestyle... these might be for your website, your social media, your marketing/PR campaign - I cant wait to hear about it. Another area I regularly get involved into is editorial and I would absolutely love to be part of a cook book production. There are so many ways to tell your unique story.
Each of my styled photoshoots starts with a discussion about how we can work together to best capture the inspiring nature of your brand, product, services. Once you are ready to schedule your first call to discuss a project or ask a question, click below:
