Blog about Me as Photographer

  As long as I remember, I have always loved Nature. I grow up in country, in rural area of Europe, where our village was surrounded by big forest. In school time I had two passions also – nature and reading. Before getting in the University of Tartu, I had to memorize every single river name, mountain height perfectly and it was exciting. Nature simply fascinated me. From the beginning, nature has been my inspiration and refuge. In my childhood I had dream to look what is behind the forest, now I am looking what is behind the world. Nature has in my life now even bigger part as it was in Europe, Estonia. When I was in school or university I did not think or dream of one day starting going to mountain over mountain discovering animals and remote landscapes by myself. Now I do. I am planning to do long hike over Pacific Crest Trail what I had seen just in pictures and on TV but would like to experience. Mountains simply were not a part of my world in Estonia where I grew up, because we don’t have mountains. But since I came to live in Las Vegas 15 years ago, my captivation with the natural world led me to spend many days on the road, traveling along fringes of wilderness looking for beauty in the last wild corners of Nevada and California and much beyond I want to go in the next future. Passion is the fuel that drives me towards new targets in my life and that makes me who I am. Sometimes it brings me to seven heaven, sometimes it makes me suffer a lot, but I would neither I could live without it. And I express it every single day of my life as an open book. As you can see, at the top of my wish list is spending time in nature, adventuring and exploring the outdoors, looking for relationships with others and maintaining an active, healthy and sustainable lifestyle, which means allowing times for things like photography, writing, exercise, loving and helping people and other things that bring me joy. Nature and Photography are more than just what I do when I travel, it is part of who I am. For me, photography is often an intensely personal experience. It´s one of the ways I connect with the world around me and helps me share my experiences with others and has been the driving force behind many of my travels and adventures. For me the joy of photography is strictly associated with the joy of plunging myself in nature and the challenges of photography are inseparable from the challenges of travelling through the mountains on my own two feet. One goal of my photography is to record and transmit some of those heavenly moments in nature. Also I want to show the purity, grandeur and unique character of mountains and inspire people to experience and respect the remaining wilderness. One’s passion is a true source of individual personality. My passions are hard to feel through reading about them, but I will take a shot at my one passion that is worth a serious attempt. I love photography. I live photography, and in fact, we all do. My passion for hummingbirds put me to stand in the hummingbird spots for hours. I just patiently learned about the behavior of these charming birds can go a long way in helping you to take good pictures. It’s great to know how they sound. Hummingbirds almost constantly make sounds while flying. I learned to listen for them and then wait expectantly for their arrival. Photography is any moment of our lives captured to last forever. The whole concept of photography to me is magnetic. There is such a power within a single flash. By using photography, you are able to choose what you want to remember about your life and the lives of other surrounding people and beings. Imagine high school graduation you are walking in a line, amongst your friends, in an auditorium which you have come to love and suddenly appreciate while you send one last glance at those seats. The look on your face is one of overwhelming remembrance and accomplishment. You know you’ll cherish this moment forever. You will always remember that moment and how good the accomplishment felt because a picture was taken of you in the moment that you were standing there, shooting that last glance. You may keep that picture hung in your college dorm, and you look at it from time to time when you need a source of inspiration. For me, photography is not just about people and their experiences. I find a strong connection with the world as I am able to take pictures of it. I find most joy in my life from sitting outside during the sunrise with a camera in my hand, gazing at what I feel is the most beautiful thing to capture on a camera. Photography is a way for me to express myself to other people how I view the world from my eyes. And to me, that is a powerful ability that I will always cherish….When I look back at photographs, they allow me to re-live certain parts of my life that I will never be able to replicate again, and I’m beyond grateful to have them. Photographs have the incredible power to make me feel happy, excited, reflective, proud, thankful, peaceful, and an abundance of love. When I photograph weddings, I’m able to capture the exact moment and the flood of emotions a groom expresses when he sees how stunning his bride is walking down that aisle. As a photographer,  I can feel in my soul how lucky, excited and proud he is to be standing in his position. It is a tremendous honor to allow my clients to permanently cherish these significant times. I’m able to see the world in a unique way. I feel I have been given the gift to see beauty in everything and everyone because I’m sensitive, observant and very empathetic. I notice the details others may be oblivious to wherever I go, such as a single ray of light shining through the clouds onto the mountain, which brings me peace; the cutest tiny dimple on a smiling face; the privileged way a guy looks at his lady when she isn’t paying attention, because she’s the reason he’s encouraged to be his best every day. I read facial expressions and know exactly how someone’s feeling. I put myself in others shoes all the time because I treat others how I’d like to be treated and I love relating to people. I get so excited  for the moments when all the stars align. I think this one is the biggest fuel to my passion. I have a big heart and nothing lights me up more than when all the circumstances in a situation line up perfectly, from the lighting, to the natural emotion emanating out of my clients faces, to the overall ambiance and the intense surge of inspiration it all gives me. I don’t take the people in my life for granted. I use my camera to capture and document moments in life, through visual story. My photos give people a chance to see the way I think. My photos help bring attention to the little things that often get overlooked. Almost like collaborating thoughts, photography shows people new angles and perspectives on life. I love presenting my work to people, because my photos are like a peek through my eyes. My photos show my unique thought process and my interpretation of the world around me. The exploration of these small moments in time help me to deeper indulge in the moment. My goal and ultimate feeling of success is drawing other people into that moment as well. My subject of choice is people. This comes from my true love and appreciation for the human experience of emotion and life. I really enjoy getting candid photos that personify pure feeling, enhanced by use of light and composition. I want my subject to feel beautiful and comfortable during the process of being photographed, so they can show me who they really are. I want the subject to see the results and feel like they are being represented well. Only recently have I began to work more with landscapes. I love finding beauty in everyday spots that may be passed by without a second glance. Through landscapes I have learned that I would really love to travel and see more interesting parts of the world. Thanks to landscape photos, one photographer can take thousands of people to the featured spot and everyone can interpret it differently. Thanks to other’s photography, I have experienced a lot more than my own eyes have seen. I hope more exploration soon broadens my horizons to see different parts and moods of nature. I am inspired by the little moments that we so often lose to memory. The best photos are the photos that resurface with it, a scent, a feeling, an essence. And for those not involved behind the scenes, a certain appreciation. I am inspired by emotion. I am inspired by personality. I’ve always been encouraged to think outside the box; I am inspired to find, with my lens, something different. Something beautiful. I tend to over think things, but with my camera, I don’t think. I just see. I imagine, and I experience. Photography made me an extrovert. I am not the best speech giver, and it’s often difficult for me to say exactly what I’m feeling.
