I am a Czech born graphic designer & photographer based in the United States, a short distance from New York City. My name is Pavlina Perry, nee Richterova. I specialize in graphic design and photography. Currently, I work as a graphic designer at Vivitar/Sakar and at the same time I am a freelance family and event photographer.
During the day, I work in Edison, NJ, in very fast-paced environment, managing multiple projects under tight deadlines. Mainly I specializes in licensed/non licensed packaging, product design, photography and advertising. (Licensed work includes adult lines like GNC, Vivitar or Kodak or children lines from Hello Kitty, Sponge Bob, Dora to many others). I work individually, but also often in a team, where I conceptually and graphically collaborate with various internal departments from sales, photographers and accounting to meet the aesthetic requirements of brand representation. My work contains product design, packaging, catalogs, advertising, creating presentation boards for trade shows and sales meetings, logo/identity design, corporate branding and maintaining brand consistency.
Evenings and weekends are reserved for my event and family photography work. I combine my knowledge of graphic design and passion for photography.
I guess that my love for photography & composition and balance began unconditionally in childhood as I was amazed by my father
“After working with Pavlina for a few semesters, I always look forward to viewing her photography as she is able to capture beauty in wonderful ways, and more importantly, she can see beauty where there is starkness. Her techniques are sound and her images are professional. Best of all, I can really rely on her. Thanks, Pavlina!"
“Pavlina captured the true essence of my children in her photographs – full of life! She surpassed my expectations in both her ability to work with my children & with the actual photos that she captured. She was wonderfully patient with my two boys, and the resulting photos reveal the full spectrum of their personalities – they are moving, laughing, crying, and then smiling again in the album that she provided. I now have a wonderful photo documentary of the life of my two boys – this is a real treasure.”
“Dear Pavlina, Thank you so much for taking these great photographs of my children. Noone else has captured them in such a natural way like you have. The pictures are full of live and totally bring out the kids personalities. The action shots are so vibrant and full of live. I’m glad you became the photographer for my kids. I get uncountable compliments when my friends and family see the pictures. Best of luck to you.”
“Pavlina has taken photos of our families for the past several years. She has a way of making the pictures come alive in such a special way. You don’t just see a picture of our family, you see relationships, love, spontaneity, curiosity, and fun. These pictures have become family treasures.”
Pavlina is a wonderful photographer who is able to capture the spirit of her subjects as well as their images. Her documentary work is evocative and full of energy, and her portraits are lovely. She is a pleasure to work with and easily puts people at ease during a session. I have engaged her for both business and personal photography projects, and have been very happy with the results.
