I lived 30 years in Riga, Latvia before I moved to Miami. For almost 20 years I have worked as programmer / web developer / internet marketer. For pleasure I organized car festivals, attended races around the world, and for 10 years I was electronic music DJ. Cars, music and internet always had one thing in common – media. Over the years I developed necessity and addiction to photography as I took photos and videos of various events I organized or attended. In 2014 I bought a one way ticket to Miami and started pursuit career as event photographer.
What I shoot
Car events. My main gig is Formula Drift, I have shot every event since 2014. Mostly during winters I shoot off-road events like King of Hammers, WORCS, Legacy Racing, Shortcourse, Mint400. I have also shot events in Europe, Japan and USA, motorsports series like D1GP, Drift Allstars, Lamborghini Super Trofeo, rally championships and autocross, car shows, etc.
Events– I shoot various events in Miami area – clubs, poolparties, weddings, private/corporate parties and birthdays.
Private – whether it be a product, real estate or a person portrait. I always enjoy to bring in some variety and unexpected challenge in my work.
