We had the good fortune of connecting with Viktoriia Zamchevska and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Viktoriia, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Actually I never thought it will be my business.It have always been fun for me.I have been taking pictures my all life.One of my friend is a fashion blogger and she asked me to take the picture of her.After she published her pictures on Instagram people start to ask her my contact.And this was the begging of my photography career
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I became a photographer about 5 years ago.. Actually I never thought it will be my business. It have always been fun for me. I have been taking pictures my all life. One of my friend is a fashion blogger and she asked me to take the picture of her. After she published her pictures on Instagram people start to ask her my contact. And this was the beginning of my photography career.
What is exciting about being photographer – the moments never repeat. I believe emotion and aesthetic are playing big role in our life. I would recommend everyone who wants to find their own path in this life. Definitely take a risk. You’re getting more than lose. It is experience and it is life. To became a successful it take a lot of hard work,but still-on my opinion luck Is important part of it. You can be talented and creative, but the only luck really work so far. My daughter is just 6 years old,but I have been showing and explaining her the “Photography World” from pretty young age. She knows a lot of famous photographers, she know this business a little form inside (for example, I took her for my two editorial shoots and she just loves it and remember all experience). I’m trying to develop her good taste and see this world a little deeper. Also, she learns how to do not give up when something doesn’t work As mom I could say it hard to keep the balance between the job and family. You should have a great team which you can trust and delegate some of your task. But, I’m trying my best. Life. My Family .My Time alone. Beauty. Kindness. Art. Good movies. Nice weather – simple things what makes me happy. Success – it’s in your head. Everything can change any time. Just do what makes you happy, but not hungry.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If it were in Miami ,I would definitely take my friend to South Pointe.Its a lot of nice and very cozy restaurants,like “Call me Gaby”.We would definitely go to the parks and ride the bike on the boardwalk.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would definitely say it’s my talented friend.Mila Zaichkina.She is amazing friend and very talented fashion stylist.Ive been lucky to work with her team.
