I’m 31 years old travelling photographer and videographer. I come from Lithuania and spend at least half a year here, but moving around in the world becoming bigger and bigger part of my life. I’m usually around people and I call everyone I meet ‘a friend’. I just love people no matter the character. Everyone is unique and must be respected for that.
My passion is water sports. Not that I’m good at it, but I like to watch it, try it record it. The big reason for it is places, where it takes part – lakes, oceans and seas with some of most beautiful surroundings. Once sitting on surfboard waiting for a wave in one beautiful bay of Portugal I looked around and told myself – this is where I really want to be! Water and nature is my passion!
Some of my work data:

2012 water sports
I’ve spent first five months in Canary Islands, Spain to find surf filming. Was cooperating with one surf school to create some advertising videos for them. In summer I’ve found wake boarding and spent some time learning how shoot fast moving water sports. By the end of the year I’ve began my South East Asia trip I didn’t even notice how I’ve became a travel consultant for many people over Facebook. This social network worked as my travel photo blog since.
