I wish I could tell here a nice story of how I picked my first camera as a child and fell in love with photography there after. But that was not the case. I got into photography by accident when I was 22 and started to assist in a photo studio as a side job. This is where everything started off. I found myself deeply pulled into the world of photography and for a while I considered to study photography in Estonian Arts Academy. However, I soon I realised I am more drawn by learning by doing and experimenting on my own. This is when I decided to do it old-school style. I started to assist the best photographers in Estonia and it was not for long I already landed my first photography job.
The past 10 years I have worked as a freelance photographer. My style is a mix of photojournalistic and contemporary photography. My favorite genres are lifestyle advertising and editorial photography. I sell my work in one of the biggest stock agencies in the world – Getty Images. Work with Getty Images has taken me all over the world. From United Arab Emirates to Japan and China where I have produced different lifestyle shoots for the local markets.
My images have been licensed by Vice, Vogue, Lonely Planet, National Geographic, Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Woman's Health, The Guardian, The independent and many others.
Currently based in Tallinn, Estonia
