…or just live and love life to the fullest. That’s the way I see photography – as a job and as a passionate way of expressing myself.
My job is to tell the story through photographs – portraits, commercial, creative, comedy, weddings, events, festivals, local culture and city scene in Hull, travels and home country stories from Latvia.

I guess my favourite narrative is people in their most awkward moments. I find a photograph without a human presence a little bit difficult.

In the last years I have discovered the need to talk about my photos – hence why I am writing a blog. Originally it started as method of an exploration, but in the year of 2017 when Hull became UK City Of Culture and I took on a weekly photographic challenge, writing became a big part of the work. Sometimes a photograph can tell million stories, sometimes photograph can be abused and interpretation twisted, but sometimes it just needs a story. I like to tell stories.
Working professionally for 2 years mostly in Hull and East Yorkshire and have gained some respectable client list over the years. Always seeking for more diverse work experience.

Studied BA Photography in Hull School of Art&Design, graduated with First Class Honours and thanks to wonderful and tough three years I consider myself to be a smarty pants in photography.

Work with digital photography, however I am not awkward at all with 35 mm, if asked.

 I am still an artist in my core, SO if you think it can’t be done – ASK ME. There is always a way.


  1. Hello. My name is Dean Hood. I am 51, married with two sons and live in Barton upon Humber.

    I was born and bred in hull and always read the hull daily mail. It is 10:11 pm on a Wednesday night I and I have just read your article.

    I think it is a brilliant idea. My father died over 6 years ago and we had a fantastic, funny, personal and dignified send off for him. However it would have been nice to have some pictures to capture the day for my mum, me , my sister and two brothers to cherish.

    If I was to die I would give you my blessing to do what you seem to do well.

    Kind regards

    • Thank you for sharing your story and for the support. I believe that funerals, as sad occasion as it is, can be photographed beautifully and continue to pay tributes to the loved one. Your comment proves just that. Thank you
