Turning their dream job into reality might sound unattainable for many, which is why I am more than proud of becoming the person I have always envisioned.
My education helped me unlock skills required to start a career in Retail. I graduated in 2002 with a degree in Business Management from the University of Applied Sciences, Vilnius. I have started working in the field since before graduation, acquiring valuable customer service skills, attention to details and business awareness. Through hard work and determination I managed to climb the ladder, in roles ranging from execution to management.
Although I was building a successful career, my craving for freedom, joy and self-expression determined me to embrace photography. From my point of view learning does not end with a degree; it is a life-long process.
I started learning the basics on my own, and this marked the beginning of an inspiring journey about commitment, hard work and self-discovery. "If the measure of who we are is that we do with what we have” (Vince Lombardi), I chose to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the full of opportunities world photography represents.
Now a professional photographer with over 10 years of experience, I am more passionate than when I first started. I am committed to delivering high quality work, for which my achievements stand as proof.
I have joined the BIPP in 2015 and I hold all 3 qualification levels. Moreover, I am proud of being awarded the 2017 Peter Grugeon Award for the Best Fellowship, which I believe reflects not only my talents and skills, but also my passion and enthusiasm.
