UK-based photographer Kris Kesiak has been taking pictures since his early teens. Armed with his first camera, a Zenit 11, he fell in love with photography and quickly found a way to subsidise his pocket money by taking portraits in his hometown of Białystok, North-Eastern Poland. His gear may have changed since those early days, but his passion for photography has grown and his portfolio now includes such varied clients as Channel 4, Toni & Guy, Nike and Carers Trust, to name a few. His work has been published in a variety of publications including Observer, The Herald, Times, DIVA Magazine and Daily Record. Kris Kesiak is available for commissions, all work considered.
Kris was recommended to us for a ‘team photo shoot with a difference’. The brief was: modern, offbeat, unique, urban, diverse. Prior to the shoot, Kris put so much thought into the location and then, on the day, he took time to get to know each team member and put everyone at ease in front of the camera. The shoot was fun, relaxed and informal: the pictures perfectly represent what we do as a department.
I have worked with various photographers over the years, Kris Kesiak is one of the best – if not the best! I now have several iconic images courtesy of Kris. He is excellent, not just because of the stand out images he achieves but the entire process always seems completely effortless and stress-free. He always puts people at ease and is a joy to work with.
We chose Kris Kesiak because we needed someone who had a style to their photography as that, as well as quality, is what we represent in our furniture and interiors. It would have dropped the bar if for marketing purposes our work had not been captured in keeping with its unique, established design and flawless quality.
I had a fantastic photoshoot with Kris. He made me feel so relaxed throughout it that I never once felt self-conscious. He has fabulous music playing which really makes you forget where you actually are. I loved every minute of it and I’m so delighted with the photos. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Working with Kris was an absolute dream; from our initial meeting to the day of the shoot we found him relaxed, professional and eager to work as part of a team. He responded perfectly to our brief and gave his own input that lifted the editorial to another level. We are thrilled with his images and are proud to have them in our portfolio. We can’t wait to work with him again!
