My name is Tomas Petkelis and I’m a Lithuanian photographer/retoucher based in London for the last 6 years.
A little bit about myself -
I first used a camera around 8 years ago, I borrowed my friend’s camera and started shooting nature and everything around me. In that moment I fell in love with the bokeh that was made in the background and all the other crazy things you could do with the pictures. Immediately I knew that’s what I wanted to do for a lifetime. Soon after I bought my first camera - Canon 600D and started shooting everything I could see. After some practice of shooting flowers, buildings and family members I decided to go and try doing a real portrait photoshoot and I really enjoyed it.
A few years later I bought a Canon 6D, which I’m currently using. I started working with models, make-up artists and stylists, shooting portraits and headshots for actors also organising photoshoots for my personal portfolio.
I’m always open for new ideas and ready for new challenges. I love doing studio/beauty shoots and I’m crazy about natural light pictures, especially those done during the golden hours.
I spend most of my free time retouching pictures using photoshop and improving my skills everyday. I’ve been studying Lightroom and Photoshop for a while now and I love how you can enhance a good image to a perfect one!
If you have any questions or booking enquiries just drop me a line on the contact section. I’m open to any collaborations, suggestions or just chats.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
