Hello, my name is Kat and I am and internationally published Freelance Fashion and Portrait Photographer based in London. I graduated Audio&Video Engineering at University in Glasgow in 2014.
My interest in beauty of photography started at university film project where I directed and shot two short films in 2012/2013. Fascinated with impact of photography on cinematography I bought her DSLR with the money saved from my first job as a waitress. Soon after that I invested in an adapter ring to be able to mount an old m42 mount Helios lens from my old Zenit. That’s when the magic began. Shyly I started capturing the radiant streets around me, discovering that the frames captured in my camera suddenly get closer and closer to the imagery in my head. From that day photography took over my life. For the good times and the bad, in sickness and in health, until death will tear us part.
Ever since, I have been growing as a photographer with early work on street and travel photography which I experimented with, eventually moving to sensual candid documentary portraiture. Things really got to the next level when I moved to London for a graduate job in 2014 and started collaborating on photoshoots with bloggers and artists. In early 2015 I launched Kat Terek – Photography and Other Miracles, a platform to showcase my portfolio and share my inpiration, current work and describe my path from a photography geek to a professional in creative industry and I started taking on freelance projects. Ever since, I have been combining my love for bohemian aesthetisc, fashion and portraiture in my photographic career. Since 2015 I worked with Stradivarius, SEIKO, Framboise Fashion, Riennahera, LXA Collection, Clubbable, The Social Hunter, Holly Jade O’Leary, Tom Hayton, The Last Bugles and others. My work has been featured in Dreamingless Magazine, Sheeba Magazine, Whim Online Magazine, Majestigal Mag, Bloomsbury Magazine, Pellicola Magazine, Atoms, Too Many Humans and Scotland Outdoors Magazine. In my fashion photography I am telling short narratives exploring themes of magic, folklore &rockn’roll.
PS. I tell stories about people who work on their passions on the top of their jobs. If you want me help you to tell your story, check out my project “Nation of Dreamers”.
PS2. I am a woman of many talents and I am currently sharing my time between photography and programming. I am interested in graphic and web development. I am currently looking for my next gig as a programmer in creative industries, ideally working in fashion e-commerce. So keep your fingers crossed for me!
