I've started this blog when I was 16, on Aug.28 and it's so funny to read my first records.
The reason for this blog to exist was to document my journey to profesional photography world. Back than I had no idea how this was going to happen, which step I would take next, would I ever reach it or would I change my mind in a year or two - I just kept doing what I was passionate about.
However this blog did its job well and, in some way, helped me to get where I am now.
"Where are you, Ira?", you would ask.
I'm 21 now. I've moved from my hometown to Kyiv. I've been to five countries and I had four jobs I'm very proud of. Getty Images signed me as a contributor. I had a lot of ups and downs, creative blocks and inspiring projects. I have my personal website now (my blog moved there,too).
And in month I'm about to move to Austria and study photography at my dream school.
Have I reached it? No, I'm just about to make my first baby steps. And these five years were shaping me as a person and preparing me to take this baby step.
Our life is a journey, not a destination, so make your journey beautiful.
I'll always be in process of reaching the goals and setting new ones, and I'll try my best to benefit the world around me on my way.
Currently my goal is to raise money for me to be able to move. I will be very grateful, if you can support me financially, vote for the campaign and share it.
