Photographer Lola Pidluskaya - Photobylola, lolapi, Lola Pi. Photographer in Shanghai, China. Professional photographer in Shanghai.


My name is Lola, I was born in Minsk, I have been living in Shanghai since the beginning of this century. 

My love for photography started in childhood when I was shooting on film cameras. Since then, I have come a long way from digital “soap boxes” to a professional Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera, and now I even use iPhone and Midjourney neural network to create unique photos. 

My professional life started in 2003 in Shanghai. I have several years of living and shooting on Hainan Island under my belt. This tropical island hardened me with its challenging conditions: inconsistent weather, exhausting heat. Besides, there I gained invaluable experience in finding the best angles and posing people of any build and age. Another bonus of the experience of photo shoots on the island is the habit of working fast. The clients there were, of course, mostly tourists who needed to be given the photos before they got home. In those years the internet and the possibility of uploading huge amounts to the cloud were not yet so developed. So to this day I still give photos very quickly in the usual way, surprising many people :) 

 Since 2015 I have been living in Shanghai again. The daily changing metropolis keeps me energized and I am happy to rediscover it every year. I will share this knowledge with you by selecting the most suitable locations for shoots. In addition to on-camera photo shoots, I also take you on photo walks with your phone to capture reels, stories and photos that you can use on your social media accounts the same day. I will design the best itinerary for you around the city, according to your interests, images and style. 

 What else I can offer you: 

 Photo walks around the city: One of the most popular and sought after types of photography in Shanghai. Often just one hour is enough to get over 100 memorable quality beautiful photos at the end. 

Event Reporting: With extensive experience in artistic photography, my event reporting is not just about capturing the event, but also about taking beautiful photos. 

In-home photo shoots: If you live in Shanghai, I will come to you and create cozy, personalized photos. 

Studio shoots: If you don’t need me, I will rent you a professional photo studio, with any equipment to meet your most incredible needs and the ability to realize the most daring lighting solutions. 

Hotel photo shoots: The perfect alternative to an interior studio or home shoot. 

Traveling shoots: Ready to travel with you to other cities and countries to create your unique photos. 

I am always ready for open and friendly communication. As soon as you decide on a shoot date and make a deposit, I will be in touch to help you prepare for the photo shoot. Paying attention to each client, I offer a personalized approach to each photo shoot. You can rely on me for everything and feel free to ask any questions that arise in the process of preparation. Together we can determine the location of the shoot and choose the best image for you. I am also ready to help in renting a studio if necessary, or to arrange a makeup artist.
