Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Miss Katerina Georgiou. Katerina is an Actress based in London, though as her name suggests, she hasn't always been a Londoner!
Born and raised in Greece, Katerina moved to London as she turned 18. She has been living there ever since. She's a trained actor and musical theatre performer, has worked at the Royal Opera House as a dancer, completed years as a trained ballerina, also spent a course of time at the Monte Carlo Ballet Academy.
Katerina has been part of musicals such as Rent, Lucky Stiff, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change! and plays such as Under Milk Wood and The Vagina Monologues.
Katerina was waiting on a call the day of our shoot, so we arranged to meet in Kensington gardens in case she needed to dash off in to Central London. At the beginning of the shoot I said wanted to portray the natural Katerina, and in return was provided with bucket-loads of natural Katerina energy!
The shoot was somewhat of a battle to find the best light, seemingly alternating between bright, harsh sunlight and flat, overcast dreary clouds, but here and there we caught pockets of beautiful golden light and it was at those moments that Katerina really lit up.
There's a small selection of the final images below, take a look through and hopefully you'll sense a little of Katerina's beauty and infectious energy too!
