Marina Barayeva – Portrait Photographer in Beijing, China

I’m a professional fashion inspired artist/photographer based in Beijing, China. For more than 6 years I bring out the beauty of people, creating the contemporary style and gorgeous, elegant look of each person.

The portrait should convey your personality, the experience you’re enjoying and the magic of your moment. Over time, I have brought an individual style to the portrait industry specializing predominately in capturing people.

I came to photography from modeling and acting and know how nervous you are when you get photographed. However, you no need to worry about it now.

With all the skills and little acting and modeling tricks, I’ll help you to get relaxed in front of the camera, bring your real emotions and get natural looking shots.

A big fan of the creative projects and collaborations, I believe in the TEAM (together each achieves more). I love to bring people together for creating great things and change the world.

I also write about social media marketing and personal branding for artists and creative entrepreneurs. Check out new tips at intnetworkplus.com. Get the short tips and inspiration on Instagram @MarinaBarayeva.
