August 2019 Photographer of the Month – Ziv Keidar
We’re pleased to announce that Ziv Keidar has achieved his first win in the Photographer of the Month competition in only his second month of participating in the Baby of the Month competition!
As the newest Barrett & Coe photographer, based in Islington, three of his entries from the August BOM competition were chosen by sponsors Premier Image, and Ziv can look forward to receiving a £200 voucher for processing at their lab. Since opening his London studio in July 2019, Ziv has built a strong Facebook community in his local area and receives regular praise and positive reviews for his photography.
After working as a Management Consultant in the Financial Services industry for over 15 years, Ziv decided to transform his long-held passion for photography into his profession. Ziv specialises in Baby, Family and Pet photography and is currently working towards his Licentiate Qualification with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP). When interacting with customers, his love for photography clearly shines through.
Ziv tells us: “Winning the Photographer of the Month competition only two months into opening my studio is a great achievement. Working as a professional photographer has been my dream for many years. Photography for me is not just looking, it is feeling. Being able to show in a portrait what someone is feeling so that it can be shared with others and treasured for years to come is my greatest delight.
When I am photographing babies, I am fascinated by their many expressions and how many babies smile with their eyes. I also get a lot of enjoyment from capturing the loving relationship between babies and their parents and siblings. Creating a connection with each baby is important, and I have noticed that some are intrigued when they look at my beard!.”
Barrett & Coe Islington is a brand new studio and conveniently located in Archway, just off the A1 Holloway Road. It is part of a gated business centre and has its own dedicated customer parking next to the studio. The nearest Underground station is Archway on the Northern Line (a 10 minute walk away) and the nearest Overground station is Upper Holloway (a 5 minute walk away). There are many bus routes, restaurants and cafes along the Holloway Road and a park and children’s playground just opposite the studio.
We look forward to seeing more winning images and further success for Ziv in the future!
