I am photographer from Riga, Latvia.
My first photocamera I got when I was seven years old and since then never put it away. I believe it corrected my vision - at first physically and later also for my soul as I grew into seeing and appreciating beauty around me.
It has been some while now since I understood that capturing people I like the most. Photography has always been only as a hobby to me as I never could afford countless film rolls or better cameras or lenses or photo studies. Digital era opened wider possibilities for me to capture light where I did not dare to take photos with film camera before. Lately my photographic interest has been turned to dance photography and other kind of performance where emotion and skill are shown. I have seen some interesting guidelines through the years leading me towards it as it has grown into Dream now which is already dawning ...
I've been folk dancer myself since I was four years old, so maybe it adds to my photographic eye. At least I hope so.
