I’m Raluca S. and I create fairy tales.
My main medium is my camera, I love building stories and capturing that special second when it all comes together. I’ve always been passionate about visual arts like painting, printing and graphics but photography will always be the one I love most.
I prefer photographing my stories because I like knowing that somewhere, sometime, that actually happened and was real. It wasn’t just in someone’s imagination, on a canvas or on the end of a pencil, the people were actually there.
I’m very inspired by paintings, I could just sit and stare at them for hours. Some of my favourite artists include Edward Robert Huges,Jean-Honroe Fragonard, John William Waterhouse.
I can offer anything from simple classic portraits to full on fairytale shoots where all your fantasies can come to life. In short, I want to take the best photo you’ve ever seen of yourself. Get in touch and we can discuss making this a reality!
Beauty has always been my main focus. I believe that everyone has a beautiful side and even if in reality it may fade away, in photos it never will; but it isn’t always the conventional stuff we see in magazines. It can be quirky and dark sometimes. Beauty is everywhere.
I am available for Fashion photography, Beauty photography and Editorial photography and based in London, UK. I am very happy to travel and make regular trips to Bucharest, Romania.
I am also available for wedding photography, engagement photography or any other events and special occasions. My style is very non-invasive and most of the time you won’t even notice I’m there.
If you have any questions regarding rates or have an idea for a shoot but not quite sure of all the details, don’t hesitate to drop me a line, I’m always very excited to meet new creatives.
Clients I have worked with include: J Model Management, Miss England, Clothes Show Live, Digital SLR Magazine, SLAP Magazine, e-Merge Magazine, Eldora False Eyelashes, Black Milk Clothing, Designer Agnes Mira Rosa, Lilly Belle Accessories, Blissfields Festival, Liv Free, Elizabeth Armstrong Designs, just to name a few.
“Raluca contacted me years ago regarding a Photo shoot and we never got round to working together, however our recent shoot was such a success it was a wait well worth it. Raluca’s quality of work is simply Devine, her style and composition of an image is truly unique and beautiful. Her dedication to the shoot and concept isn’t anything short of professional. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Raluca she creates a friendly, professional and fun atmosphere to work with on a shoot, she sets the mood well so that all team members are aware of the final aim of the shoot and we are all working together to achieve that. I would be honored to work with Raluca again.”
‘Raluca is a gem to work with, with a wonderful creative eye, passionate dedication to her photography and very sweet spirit. I’ve had the chance to work with her a few times now, and been so pleased with the enchanting results she captured. She uses light, detail and storytelling in beautiful ways, involving her subject in really magical imagery. Her skills are improving continually, and I look forward to see more of her work and shooting again in future.’
