Greetings my friend!
Long story short. Latvian boy, moved to Scotland in 2010, graduated with BSc Biomedical Sciences, 8 years expertise in photography, 10 years in retouching. Life made me bow so low, I sold my equipment in order to survive. Nevertheless, I recently saved for adapter and vintage lens, so now I am ready to get back on track, slowly and calm.
I feel ashamed when asking for help. I have my feet, arms and head on place, I should do that on my own, but more I wait, more hesitation, more procrastination, and if not my friends, I would end up selling the camera itself, they suggested to keep the body in case of rainy night. That‘s one of them.
Today I was doing a hot chocolate for a lady, and during a conversation with her about everything and everyone, she told about a story when she raised 1,000£ for visiting her place of dreams, so she adviced to make one for my goal and hope for the best.
Well, I should try at least. I pursue my big dream of becoming professional photographer, with unique style and recognition locally in UK. Money I am raising is for portrait lens, which would essentially aid for better production. Furthermore, I plan to start advertising small businesses, and help products grow. There are several projects with portraits, which require a studio and investments, but first I need the lens steady enough for day-to-day shooting.
Can’t add more, maybe just links for my instafeed with Latvian portfolio and current, London fresh start.
Thanks for taking your time and reaching this point. Feel free to write on IG, I might use your advice, or maybe you want to meet up (London only) for a photoshoot or just, you know, subscribe, as it’s priceless for me.
My big childhood dream was to become popular. Now I want my photography rise and shine.
