Who is Keigo?

My name (if you haven’t already worked it out!) is Keigo Kato. I’m a photographer from Birmingham, Great Britain (not Alabama!).  I’m a dad, a husband, and like to cook. I occasionally like to photograph people icon smile Who is Keigo?

I  offer portrait and wedding photography, both in my studio (more on that below) and on location.  I like working with the shapes, patterns, colours, and the overall variety locations can throw at me. It can be both fun and challenging, but overall, it makes me adapt to the situation.  It means comfort zone often doesn’t exist.  I like to think I live on the edge (snigger).

I am now the king of my own photo studio – Studio 197.  It is fully equipped with number of lights, modifiers, prop box full of goodies. It has everything you need for a good portrait photo shoot.  When the weather is nice, I still prefer shooting on location, but during the winter month, having a kettle and a toilet nearby helps hugely! 

Photography is people business, and I think one of the most important skill you can have as a portrait photographer is to connect with the subject and gaining trust, and do it quickly.

I’m available for commissions in portraiture, weddings, headshots,  model portfolios, event photography, etc.  I travel all over, so distance is never a problem for me.

Photographers – I am also offering 1 to 1 or group tuitions on photography, from beginner to advanced level.  Please contact me to enquire.

Models – I do limited tests/TFP shoots, but as time is very precious to me (I have recently got married), I have limited “play” time.  While I will consider all requests, please do not be offended if I cannot meet your request.  On a brighter note, I’m always available for portfolio shoots for a reasonable fee icon smile Who is Keigo?
