Majken Kruse Photographer & Tutor UK - summary -  http://www.majkens.co.uk

Award winning female professional photographer for portraits, wedding engagements and business photography, Majken Kruse serves her photography clients in Surrey, London,  and Home Counties from her base in Esher, Elmbridge, Surrey near the London borders.  She specialises in creative photographs with a difference, bringing her woman's eye to selecting when and what to photograph. Most of Majken's work is digital.  Along side her people photography Majken also covers other locations and provides personal tutorial services to developing professional and amateur photographers.

Majken brings to her photography experience as a model in front of the camera and natural creativity, as well as her expertise as an established and qualified professional photographer, photographing people and locations since the 1980s. This background helps her help her clients to relax and bring out their best at a photographic session. Combined with her instinctive eye for a picture this leads to natural and effective photographs. Majken qualified as an Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photographers (ABIPP), as an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and as a Craftsman of the Guild of Wedding Photographers.  More important than these assessments of her professional colleagues are the thanks and testimonials and enthusiastic comments of her clients and seeing the Photographs in her several galleries for examples of Majken's beautiful photography.

Alongside her Portrait and Wedding practices Majken Kruse provides photography for business and private Social Events, Public Relations and web sites. 

Majken's Business and PR photography includes cover of both PR events and PR portraits - where image is important to the business / organisation and/or the individual concerned.  PR portrait assignments can be for individuals who seek a great picture of themselves as well as for larger groups or a number of individuals.  PR Location photographs are also taken.  Majken works with digital photography and can provide photographs as web images, high resolution digital images or as printed photographs.  Business portraits can be taken at your location and, for some, at her base in Esher, Elmbridge, Surrey.

She also gives photography tutorials and courses on a wide range of related topics.  For broad pricing indications on these services see the Prices section.

Much of Majken's work is "on location" at a place selected by or convenient to you, her client - often at your home or the office. UK areas most often covered are Surrey, London  and the Home Counties.   See Locations for some of the UK counties and towns most regularly served.  She provides printed photographs and defined digital images as well as completed albums.

Improving as a Photographer, looking for tutorials and courses?  Majken coaches and teaches professional photographers and amateur photographers on a wide range of types of photography  - See Photography Tutorials for formal training (one to one Master Classes ) on portraits, wedding photography,  social and business events and PR photography - with a focus on photographing people - and other aspects and types of photography such as buildings, landscapes and wildlife.  For professionals tuition can be extended to include business aspects and mentoring for developing professional photographers.  Students can also arrange for remote follow up via phone and email.

See Professional Portrait Photography for general information on portraiture, family portraits, portraits for the web - photography at your location or in Esher: and portrait galleries for a selection of individual, and family portraits and business portraits for those special business photographs and PR images.  A selection of her wider work can be seen at her general gallery.
