“I had a 1-on-1 Consultation (3hrs) with Réka as I felt I needed some guidance regarding my food photography. The communication was fast and Réka prepared a slide show for all the questions I had. She was very knowledgeable and shared lots of valuable and important information. What I liked about her specifically is that she is very down to earth and helpful. She is not only a professional photographer but a brilliant teacher and coach. I can not recommend her services enough.”
—GIZELLA - @ENGLANDSPUZZLE


“I attended Reka’s 1-1 private consultation, and it was an excellent session. We discussed my needs before the session and Reka tailored the consultation to meet those needs. It was a hands-on experience with a lot of discussions about the whys and hows of food styling and photography. I learned so much useful information which I’m looking forward to putting into practice in my everyday photography. I will recommend Reka’s consultation and training session to anyone looking to improve their food photography”
