Hi, my name is Arturs
Before that I was focusing on portraiture but I was missing something with single subjects, I was missing an opportunity to tell the story, that’s how I’ve started photographing couples. What I’m doing today is showing emotions between two loving people (in the first place) then exterior appearance (like I would do in the portraiture) the key to achieve that is trying my best to make a couple/family feel as much comfortable and natural as they can, through movement, laugh and having a lot of fun.
Dream vacation: French Polynesia.
Favorite food & drink: Pici al cacio e pepe, tagliatelle al ragù di cinghiale… Chinese and Indian cuisine!
Favorite way of travel: More I grow, more I lean towards the airplanes.
Spoken Languages: English, Italian, Polish, Russian
My style is reportage – candid photography with a little bit of a portrait photographer eye. I use only prime lenses, as bright as they can get, I love background separation, warm tones, I emphasize grass greens and yellow color, balancing with blue – this is the reason why I love to shoot at golden hour – but I suppose this is not a surprise! I think as much as we (photographers) can be amazing technically, we need to practice and learn mentalism, in order to be able to understand every person’s personality and pull out the most natural aspects of it, the front of the camera. I love movement in my photographs, interaction, laughs, cuddles. I try to be as less visible as possible! My advice – Just have Fun and I will give you the best gift!
