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
Events– I shoot various events in Miami area – clubs, poolparties, weddings, private/corporate parties and birthdays. I also work every holiday like New Years eve and absolutely enjoy it.
Car events. I have shot events in Europe, Japan and USA, motorsports series like D1GP, Drift Allstars, Formula Drift, Lamborghini Super Trofeo, rally championships and autocross, car shows, etc. for automotive portals: AutoLife305 , Tune86 and Bizspeed. Published in SuperStreet Online and Wrecked Magazine.
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.
