Viktoria – Mama Bear – Portfolio

Originally I started taking photographs of my loved ones and close friends with my grandfather’s old Zenit film camera at the age of 15 and quickly developed that desire to capture all the beautiful moments I experienced through my lens. I got my first digital SLR at the age of 18 and mastered my skills with years of practice in portrait, fashion and children photography. In 2013 I completed my BA (Hons) Degree in Photography (Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology) and Nikon UK sponsored my final graduation exhibition. I have been working in technical support as a coacher and trainer for one of the leading manufacturers of high-end DSLRs for over 10 years.

I think one of my favourite quotes that may sum up how I feel about my photography is the one of Annie Leibovitz:

“When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.”

 My photography is a journey of self-discovery and self-expression; it’s a process through which I choose to explore people and their feelings, emotions and unique identities.
