I have worked with Kateryna on several occasions in the last year and have also recommended her to clients. Personally, Kateryna and I have collaborated on a series of portrait and product shots, which turned out beautifully. She is great at developing ideas with my vision in mind and the end result is always better than I could have envisaged. Working with her is fun and easy, which is all I can ask for on a shoot day!”

Kateryna Topol is someone a client can count on! Our band Danceland project had a very short timeline for a PR campaign, not only did Kateryna make the time, but worked through rough rainy weather. In a short period of time we came away with several photos that we have been using for various content and we could not be happier with our experience with Kateryna.”
