Tailored to your needs

1-on-1 sessions proved to be the most efficient form of education during my own learning curves, so I fully trust this method when it comes to bringing you closer to your own goals at your level of proficiency - this is how:

  • beginners can become proficient in the fundamentals of photography, styling and gear to create a client-ready portfolio,
  • semi-professionals can up-skill, break free from creative rut, and clarify their goals and improve their business practices in order to attract their ideal client,
  • food bloggers, home bakers & chefs can learn to capture their creations in a way that wows their audience and customers,
  • entrepreneurs can learn how to optimise your setup & take cohesive, recognisable and memorable product photos aligned with your branding.

Check what my mentees say

You can find more feedback on our Trustpilot page.

“I had a brilliant Mentoring Programme with Réka. The sessions were tailored to my needs: we discussed topics where I felt I needed guidance and I got homework to improve my skills. I also had the opportunity to ask all sorts of questions, mainly business-related ones which she answered with all honesty and shared her valuable experiences. But more importantly, Réka encouraged me and provided ongoing emotional support which shows her strength as a true mentor. I cannot recommend her enough.” 


"I had a 1-on-1 Consultation with Réka and it was so helpful for me to start my photography business. She helped me to identify the most important steps towards a successful beginning and she was very honest and encouraging. I like her mindset not only as a photographer but as a business owner as well."


“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”

Never stop learning

Below, you can see how my own work evolved from the year I got my first DSLR until today. There is nothing wrong with the early images, but the consistency surely increased and the portfolio has been updated with way more advanced references over time.

I got here by constantly adding new skills and learning from mentors who already achieved what I'm aiming at. Seeking for feedback is also essential for further growth so I constantly challenge my vision at different competitions and reflect on my work via professional reviews.
