My name is Alanta Shavru.
I grew up in a small country in Europe called Lithuania. Some time ago I moved to Dubai, UAE. I graduated from Vilnius Academy of Arts and got my bachelor degree in photography and arts of media. For the last 8 years I was working as a freelance photographer. I specialize in portraits, weddings, fashion photography. Photography has always been passion of mine. Since my early age I was interested in taking pictures of particular moment to make it last. I was fascinated by the process itself, and the possibilities that came along with technology. Attention to details, time spent in post-production will to take that perfect shot, get that perfect sun glare going through the tiniest gap - this is what makes photography real, interesting and rewarding by itself. To me, photography is all about the time, that perfect moment in time which a photographer captures and which stays alive forever with its own emotion, feelings and even its own story.
My work was published on 15min.lt, delfi.lt, alfa.lt, gulfnews.com, 7day.ae, Time out Dubai, Wedding magazine. The companies I worked for were related with events, studio and corporate portraits.
“Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes a precise moment in time.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
