W H O  I S  H I Y A F O T O ?

I am a freelance fashion and street photographer with many years experience of photography in film and digital formats along with previous experience of processing of film and print. I have experience of digital post-production techniques with Adobe and DxO software packages, retouching my own work to meet my client's requirements, including colour-correction and retouching images to bring you the best quality final images, building on great lighting and composition. Working with a wide range of film SLR, DSLR & Medium Format equipment to cover formal and informal styles of photography including studio, catwalk, street and architectural, interiors, cityscapes/ landscapes, and also have silent digital mirror-less equipment suitable for film sets. 

Twice a month I have slots available for a TFP (Trade-for-Print/Portfolio) shoot for those who are just starting out or getting back into the fashion modelling industry. These shoots are very popular and booked a month in advance. They are usually outdoor street shoots in the Shoreditch area of East London, lasting around two hours, with 20 edited shots made available to you via an online folder. If you are interested in booking one of these shoots then please feel free to get in touch via e-mail to info@hiyafoto.co.uk or check out my social media connections in the "Contact Me" section. Rates apply for all other shoots so please get in touch with your requirements. I use NIKON and Hasselblad equipment. All images used on this website are my own work and are copyrighted - ©hiyafoto

I had the privilege of working with Hiyafoto on a street/fashion photoshoot in London. His pre-shoot communication was excellent and he has a very gentle and relaxed way of working so I felt at ease. He is very artistic, knowledgable, well prepared and helpful alongside being a professional with all the right paperwork and a lot of talent. I hope to work with him again. Thank you for the beautiful photographs. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot with Ed aka Hiyafoto and it had been my most fun shoot so far. Ed is great at making one feel at ease and strives to bring out the best in you. I would most certainly work with Ed again.
