Who am I?
My name is Krisztina Beothy and I am a Calgary based photographer.
Since I was young I was attracted to anything to do with film and photography, theatre, music and fashion and anything to do with creating things. Naturally I dreamed of being involved in these industries. My mother advised me to focus on realistic goals, and so I studied business.
My love for the arts remained nevertheless and since photography was something that I was able to pursue while working regular 9-5 jobs, I kept improving purely out of joy and passion. I loved photographing the temples of Thailand, the streets of Taiwan, the children of Cambodia, the sea side in the Philippines, and the beautiful women in their saris in India. I loved photographing the whales on the West Coast of Canada and the statues in Italy. I loved photographing the dark mountains of Transylvania and the buffalo of Africa. I loved capturing cultures, people, architecture and anything to do with color, shapes and light.
I see beauty all around me. Eventually I just decided to transform my hobby into a career, and I never looked back, establishing my photography business in 2011. To be creative is the most natural thing for me.
Why do I do photography?
The biggest reason I love to take pictures is because I feel that I can capture the personality of people in a gentle, kind and authentic way. Nothing makes me happier in my work then when people love their photos. I particularly love it when people that believe they are not photogenic realize that it is a myth. I want to be known as the myth buster of all times of all negative self impressions that people believe about themselves. It is so much fun and so easy to work with people that are happy with themselves but I particularly love it when I can bring out the confidence in people that need a little booster.
I also realize that the photos that I take are meaningful on so many levels. I tell my children often :”Let me take your photo because when you will be old and you have your family surrounding you, they will want to know and see memories from your past. These photos will become more significant and valuable to you and your family as time goes by.” Of course now my children just think that I am a relentless paparazzi, but I know that they will thank me later.
Throughout the years of pursuing photography I have learned to always follow my dreams and help others make theirs come true. It is my mission to make you look and feel marvelous. Have you had your portraits taken lately? I invite you to book your session today!
