Beata Plawska

Beata Photography

My name is Beata Plawska and I have been living in Hampton Roads, VA for the past 13 years. I am an artist, photographer, and designer, who enjoys the eternal supply of loveliness, beauty and wonders found everywhere in my surroundings.

My company provides photo services for almost any photographic needs in the Hampton Roads area and beyond. I specialize mostly in events like weddings, engagements, family reunions and birthday parties. Naturally and spontaneously, I capture those extraordinary moments of yours in pictures that you will cherish for generations.

For all the events, I use a technique known as "photojournalism" which is a genre that covers the event in “real time” progression and where I am respectful of the natural occurrences and where the photographer seeks to minimize their leadership position in arranging, staging, and prompting subjects.  In other words, I try to capture the honesty and spontaneity of the event without artificially posing or scripting the shots.

As well as event photography, I specialize in both classic and contemporary fine portraits of individuals, couples, children, babies, families, and high school seniors. I also do head shots and comp cards (zed cards) for models. As an accomplished portraitist, I believe my responsibility is to turn an individual into a work of art. Each portrait is created individually, based on the personality, character and style of the person in front of my camera.

I also do fine art portraits on canvas. My interpretation of photographic reality through digital and traditional artistry places my portraiture in a completely new genre, a hybrid of photography and painting. I photograph the subject and then scrupulously overprint the image digitally. I also paint topically for luxuriant texture and allure. The style is similar to the paintings of Old Masters with multiple layers of paint and colors achieving a depth of light. I can make portraits of people, animals, or any subject that is precious to you.
Please view some examples of my work under the "Fine Arts" category.

In addition, I provide photo services including freelance photography services, image restoration, photo manipulation, photo collages, custom DVD presentations with music, coffee table books, yearbooks, church directories etc.

Whatever style you prefer I am a photographer who is dedicated to meeting your needs and providing you with pictures you will always treasure. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
