These days it feels like every second person buys a DSLR and creates their own Facebook Photography Page. This is why every day it gets harder to get into photography business and get actually paid for the work you do. At times it can be very hard to tell an amateur apart from a semi-professional. No wonder why people expect young photographers to do their work for free. What they don’t understand is that every professional once was an amateur so the question is – how to break free from being seen as an amateur and to become a full-time photographer who can pay bills with an actual money instead of just receiving a permission to use pictures.

This is the story of the “People I met in Latvia.”
