Hi! Just as advertised, I am a professional freelance photographer and a social media expert. I photograph for media and private clients and balance my photo career with managing social media accounts for businesses worldwide. In addition, I am also the social media and communications manager at the Embassy of Lithuania in Czech Republic. My university background is in communications, advertising, and public relations. With extensive amount of photo journalism behind me, covering political rallies, conferences, and concerts, I now focus my career on music and commercial photography and balance it with social media management. I enjoy working in both, photography and social media, and find that both fields can benefit from each other greatly. If you would like to throw me a challenge, there is no project I will not attempt, and the more difficult it is the better I will usually do. I always value close interpersonal connection with those I work with and aim to establish an understanding between me and my clients in order to get the best results possible. Visit my website to view my photo portfolio at www.mocthephotographer.com and I hope we will work together soon!
