hi


My name is Katerina

I am a photographer based in Athens, Greece.

I studied photography at the University of West Attica, Department of Photography and Audiovisual Arts.

For several years I worked on advertising and portrait photography, and I became acquainted with image processing on a Power Mac G3 with Adobe Photoshop 4!

Later on, I taught Photoshop at photography schools and at the same time focused on editing.

Currently, I work with fashion and advertising photographers, photojournalists and mainly with art photographers and visual artists, participating in the creative process of their art works that are presented in art galleries, books and museums in Greece and abroad.

I continuously keep myself up-to-date, learn and enrich my knowledge, using the newest software and cutting edge technologies, making sure that I will satisfy all my clients’ highest requirements.

Χειλαδάκη Κατερίνα

“But there are, if only rarely, men who would rather perish than work without any pleasure in their work. They are choosy, hard to satisfy, and do not care for ample rewards, if the work itself is not the reward of rewards. Artists and contemplative men of all kinds belong to this rare breed.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

some nice words from people I have worked with

  • "Katerina Cheiladaki has carried out image processing for all my personal works. I have known her for several years already and regard her as a trustworthy person to work with. She knows her job extremely well, her assessment is undeniably beneficial, the whole process is always pleasant and creative. We have worked in the same space and remotely and results have been the best. Working with Katerina definitely leads to a higher standard of quality in photographic works."

  • "It is always a pleasure to work on my fine art photography with Katerina. Her sharp eye for detail and her many years of experience make her irreplaceable. Her comments and  knowledge of different printing medias has help me discover and see my work in a new way. Katerina's very warm and welcoming personality makes the work process a pleasure".

  • "In photography, post processing is an integral part of the creative process. You cannot do too much or too little, you have to do it 'just right'. To achieve this you need a skilled and sensitive professional that can interpret a photographer's aesthetic vision and provide a high quality outcome in a timely manner. Katerina has been this person for my creative journey for the past 15+ years. My son, Leon Petrinos, now 16 years old, has been Katerina's client since age 6! Katerina was instrumental in our successful efforts to be awarded 5 times in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year (Natural History Museum, London). Nowadays, we do not need to give her directions anymore about how we would like her to treat our digital files. She just knows our aesthetic values and can translate them impeccably with her unparalleled computer art. Looking forward to more and even more inspiring years of collaboration".

  • "For many years now, Katerina has been the last person that I unreservedly trust a photograph to, before it goes to print. In the turmoil of modern technology, preparing a photographic file for print and being absolutely certain that the final result will be better than what you expect, is invaluable. She is a significant, dependable person to work with, who in addition becomes part of a project and creation herself. I thank her for everything and always have confidence in her".
