Hi, my name is Ralu Chase and I am an international documentary photographer based in Essex, UK.

I’ve been a photographer for about 15 years. It has been a long journey and through it all, the photos that have remained as the most meaningful to me are those that have a real story behind them. The photographs that make it onto my walls and into my family albums
are those that take me back to an exact moment in time, the ones that preserve a memory so perfectly candid that even 1000 words could not express it.

I am in love with people's stories and I am passionate about capturing real life just as it happens. I prefer using a documentary approach to all my photography, because it allows me to tell your story in an authentic way, capturing the real human connections and natural beauty of everyday life.

Worldwide travel seems to be in my DNA - call it severe wanderlust if you wish! - so no matter where you are on this planet, I would jump with joy at the chance to come and photograph you.

Living in 3 different countries on 2 different continents, I have learned to go with the flow in almost everything. But just as importantly, I have also learned that people all have their own unique ways of seeing, celebrating and facing life. We might go through similar situations, but the way we handle them is what makes us unique.

The most challenging - and the most rewarding - part of my job is showing off each person's individuality through my photography.

There is amazing beauty in transforming a fleeting moment into a piece of art that will always remind you of the people you love and the reasons you love them so dearly.
It would by my privilege to do that for you.

Give me a shout if:

✓ You smiled at least twice while looking at my photos

✓ You usually don't like having your picture taken

✓ You laugh at a good joke

✓ You laugh at your own jokes sometimes

✓ You can make a funny face

✓ You want realistic memories of your family, just as it is
Let's chat then!

Random facts about me:

I have 5 kids, a very supporting husband, a dog and some chickens. I like them all, but I really love my kids and husband. :)

I love sneezing when I look at the sun. Apparently, there is a special gene which make you do that, so you should try it out and see if you have that gene, too.

I love biking - 90% of my childhood happened on a bike.

I really don’t like being cold - unless I am getting some great photos out of it!

I am very easy going.

I can sit down and listen to people's life stories for hours and hours. If they also provide food I might never leave!

Great pictures, wonderful experience! They say 'chemistry' does magic. This is what Ralu has: good chemistry with people and the brilliant talent to reveal and capture the best in them.

I LOVE STORIES, I LOVE TRUE MOMENTS AND EMOTIONS. CAPTURING THE BEAUTY OF EVERYDAY LIFE IS MY PASSION.
