I am quite an open-minded and life-loving guy. I'm always craving new adventures and experiences, and I personally think it is those cravings that have led me to the very point where I am now.



How did you end up where you are now? 


I am quite an open-minded and life-loving guy. I'm always craving new adventures and experiences, and I personally think it is those cravings that have led me to the very point where I am now. 



What are some of your main passions? 


My main passion is Medicine, because frankly speaking I am studying Dentistry. I think that the more I'm able to help people, the more positive vibes I'll receive in my own life. Then, of course, there is my passion for photography and social media (which always keeps me in the know about what's new and trendy). Both of which are excellent for inspiration if one is looking for it. 



What were some of the greatest challenges and accomplishments in your journey? 


The greatest challenge for me was to create a blog that suits my personality and soothes the overall demand for the latest in fashion trends and popular culture, which also ended up becoming my greatest achievement. The most important things I've learned on this journey is to always complete what you have started, NEVER procrastinate and don't be afraid of your dreams. 





What are 5 invaluable tips you can share about shooting looks? 


1. If you want to take a good photograph, you should find a good spot with excellent lighting.
2. Keep in mind that you should look effortless. There is no need to force a pose, and you should look as natural as possible.
3. If you are posing in the photo, it's important to be wearing trendy and on-demand clothes.
4. If you are shooting for a specific look, make sure it is in harmony with the weather.
5. Last but not least, you should be in a good mood. Stay positive and express good, vibrant emotions. 



What camera do you use? 


I use a Nikon D3100. My favorite spots to shoot are usually in tunnels where the lighting is most efficient in creating good contrasts and shadows. Shooting in the winter is invaluable as well because snow is radiant on its own, and gives extra beauty and mystique to a photo.


What are a few apps you can't live without? 


Lookbook, Instagram, Adobe Photoshop, ASOS and Facebook, to name a few. 



Where do you find inspiration? 


Fashionbeans.com always seem to have the freshest cuts of style inspiration. 



Describe your personal style. 


I must say that it's pretty varied. Hard to even begin describing it, but I'd say it's similar to Smart Casual. 



What are your 5 must-haves for the season? 


It's winter outside so my absolute must-haves for this season are the Selected Homme Herringbone Overcoat (ASOS), Skinny Shirt In Sateen With Long Sleeves (ASOS) underneath, Selected Homme Cropped Skinny Fit Trousers with Stretch (ASOS) and Paul Smith Patrick Lace Up Boots (ASOS), and as a cherry on top – a Pieces Ribbed Oversized Blanket Scarf (ASOS). 




Favorite color at the moment? 


If you are asking about my favorite color in clothing, then it would be either one of the monochrome colors, or beige. 



What does a typical day look like for you? 


Daily Routine:

5:45 Waking
6:00 Breakfast
6:15 Morning Shower
8:00 University
12:00 Lunch
14:00 Going home
17:30 Beauty sleep (nap)
18:30 Revising study materials
19:00 Checking up social media
19:15 Dinner
20:00 Shower
20:30 Checking news and miscellaneous
22:30~23 Going to bed

And speaking about weekends I try to keep the routine out of them. I want them to be as random as possible. 




What are your go-to hairstyling products? 


I use Redken Control Addict 28. 



What are your favorite things to do this time of year?


Usually it would be skiing and sledging, but as of now I'm only preparing for the exams in Dentistry and Session in University. 



What are the top 3 things to do in your hometown? 


1.Old City Riga is a must-see if you ever decide to visit Latvia. It is always buzzing with life, especially on weekend evenings. It is a very popular spot for tourists as well.
2. Castle of County Rundāle is yet another popular spot for its historical heritage and calming nature around it.
3. Sigulda is a superb place to visit as well, especially during fall. I’d recommend taking some photos there for it is a very appealing for budding photographers and professionals likewise. 




How has living where you are affected your sense of taste and style? 


It hasn’t. I find my inspiration elsewhere. Otherwise I’d be wearing all black clothing and a pale face. 



Any exciting travel plans you're looking forward to? 


Yes! I plan to go to the UK. 



What are your favorite places to go this time of year?


Since it's so cold outside right now, I think the best getaway for me would be to somewhere warm, like Spain, Australia, Hawaii, Brazil or New Zealand. 




Are there any exciting or interesting projects you are working on right now? 


Yes. Right now, I am about to finish my studies in Riga’s Stradins University, and I am preparing to present my Research in Orthodontics. 



Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 


I will be a Dentist, that I know for sure. I hope I will live in Toronto City, Canada in a skyscraper overlooking the urban scenery.

What’s on your movie list at the moment? 


I am absolutely hyped to see Get Out and The Autopsy of Jane Doe. 



What is your life mantra? 


Never be afraid of your dreams or inspirations for they are the leading signs to your success.

I like his style but I have to disagree with wearing trendy clothes, it's all about personal style and lots of people wear more retro/vintage stuff which is just as worthy for a photo. But overall I like this interview
