Saraya Cortaville

Saraya Cortaville is an award-winning portrait and social documentary photographer.
She has received two fellowships (one of only two women in the UK to have achieved this): one for studio portraiture and most recently social documentary for a project she completed in 2015 whilst living in Africa.

She was awarded the Peter Grugeon award for the best fellowship portfolio of 2015, and a gold award in Visual Arts in the professional photography awards 2016.

Saraya’s passion for travel and people has pushed her career into a more adventurous phase and she has recently lived and worked abroad for various international NGOs documenting social issues in countries as far as Tanzania and Nepal.

Saraya skilfully manages to draw out her subjects emotions and feelings, in a sensitive and empathetic way. Her portraits are an observation and moment of connection, between two people, rather than photographer and subject.

When not abroad Saraya shoots primarily location portraiture, specializing in children and documentary weddings.
