Portrait and Travel Photographer

Jackie Rado is an independent freelance photographer specialising in portrait and travel photography. Originally from Scotland, she lived for many years in Thailand, travelling on commission around Asia and Europe. She is now based in the UK, working on location and from her studio in southwest London.

Jackie’s travel photography has been featured in various publications, including Marie Claire, Travel + Leisure, The Bangkok Post Magazine and Traversing the Orient. She works primarily on assignment, and has been commissioned by a variety of NGOs and charities.

Jackie specialises in commissioned portraits, centring on families of all ages: from maternity through newborns and babies, to families and profile portraits / headshots. She also enjoys commissions for larger groups and weddings.

For photography enthusiasts, Jackie loves to share her passion and expertise through a comprehensive range of workshops and fieldtrips for all levels of experience. She has recently expanded this to include a mentoring programme for those wishing to progress further.

“Capturing people as they truly are and recording significant moments in their lives is one of my greatest pleasures. Living in Asia gave me an inspirational photographer’s playground on my doorstep – providing the opportunity to capture some of the world’s most vibrant places, cultures and individuals. Now I’m delighted to be spending more time in the UK and Europe and seeing them again with fresh eyes.”
