Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
My name is Vlasta and I'm a photographer trying to make a splash in Glasgow's photography pond. I shoot sport, fashion, portraits, social events, even landscapes during my regular hillwalking trips. Photography is a huge hobby of mine, not a business venture. And even though I do take paid assignments, I always find time to shoot what/who I like and when I like. So if you're interesting in hiring me/ collaborate with me, feel free to contact me and I bet we'll find a way ;) If I had to describe my ambitions, I'd say I'm a competitive photographer, specializing on portraits- last year, I found out about competitions regulated by FIAP, RPS and PSA and joined the circuit. What appeals to me is that the results are not decided by number of "likes" on facebook, but rather a panel of experienced judges.
I joined this site to find new models, MUAs and even photographers to collaborate with, to learn from, and, hopefully, to add some great images to our folios.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Work experience? Well I did get paid for several shoots, but I still consider myself an amateur photographer...
- I collaborate with DE Photo, an Irish event photography company. They call me twice a year to help shooting The World Pipe Band Championships as well as The Cowal Gathering in Dunoon.
- In July 2012, I started participating in FIAP/RPS/PSA competitions
- My photos were published in a couple of newspapers as well as on flyers announcing motorcycle racing event
- I'm a member of The Royal Photographic Society and The Bureau of Freelance Photographers
- I've passed a course with The Photography Institute, but the most of my experience comes from self-studying and learning from my mistakes
