It’s always a nice surprise to receive an award unexpectedly. It can be a source of motivation to implement even more ideas and keep going in the future. However, resting on our laurels and being satisfied is a sign of our time and can lead us to standstill.
Therefore, I draw a lot of motivation from this experience for the coming year and for my future projects. Although I feel very honored to have received this award, it is even more valuable considering how many great photographers are working in this field worldwide.
I would like to thank NDawards for giving me this recognition.
There is nothing more beautiful for a photographer than to have their images published in magazines, especially when it is an internationally renowned art magazine.
I had the pleasure of photographing Ieva Pranskute in early 2021 and creating this beautiful portrait of her. Although we made many other great images during the shoot, this image was chosen by Artenzza Magazine as the cover. Ieva was also interviewed in the magazine, where she talked about her musical career and her view on music.
It is an immense pleasure for me to accompany artists on their brief journey with images!
On a Sunday morning, I received another beautiful message, this time from the Annual Photography Awards.
I had participated in this competition with other images and had already given myself a chance, as I found the selection to be very good. I had developed and successfully implemented the lighting setup for this image myself.
Despite a strong field of over 10,000 submissions in 5 categories, I received the award. I am grateful and very happy about it.
A big thanks goes to Annual Photography Awards!
I participated in a total of three different international photography competitions at the end of 2022 and beginning of 2023, each with different images taken over the past two years of talented international artists.
It is particularly gratifying that two of my favorite images received mentions at the Fine Art Photographic Awards, one them which is even the cover image for my website!
Participating in such competitions requires courage but also offers a great opportunity to compare the own work with other photographers on an international level.
I am proud that my images received recognition in all of the competitions and feel a great appreciation for all the artists who stood before my camera and gave me their time to create beautiful pictures.
Thanks again to all the artists who I have met in the last 3 years!
And a big Thank You to Fine Art Photographic Awards!
