Biography: Although I was always taking pictures during school years, my real path towards becoming a professional photographer started when I got injured during a windsurfing competition and had to stay on the shore for a while. I just couldn't sit on the beach doing nothing; I wanted to get closer to the action. So I took a camera and got myself on the race officer's boat as a "photographer". At first I just wanted to see the action but then I ended up only shooting pictures. After that I was invited to shoot various windsurfing competitions and later on all kinds of different sports. A year later, I enrolled in the Estonian Academy of Arts to study photography. Today my main interest still is sports photography. Thanks to Nikon and Phottix I can try almost anything that comes to mind. I am always trying to find something new in every shoot: new lighting techniques, new post-production tricks, cool remote camera places or anything else. I believe there are a lot of interesting things yet to be discovered in the world of photography.Although I am mostly known as a freelance sports photographer, I also do commercial, architecture and 360 degree photos. The Shot: When I was covering Simple Session (one of Europe's biggest skateboarding & BMX contests), I saw this one wall free of any logos and big tire marks. It looked so clean that I just wanted to draw something on it - so I decided on a skater's shadow!Although I didn't have much time, I wanted to give it a try. I went to the car to get the transportation ropes I usually use for attaching my surfboard to the car. I took a 4-meter light stand and mounted it on the top of the ver - Thursday 14th March 2013 (1 Picture)
