Mila’s journey to becoming a photographer started at a young age. She was always captivated by the art of capturing moments and would constantly experiment with composition, lighting, and various photography techniques to capture unique and compelling images. As she got older, her skills and experience as a photographer grew, and she started receiving positive feedback from friends, family, and even strangers who appreciated her work. Encouraged by this feedback and her own passion for photography, she made a decision to turn her hobby into a profession.
As her portfolio and reputation grew, she continued to work hard, build her brand, and refine her style. When she arrived in the United Kingdom, she was faced with barriers that made it hard to pursue her passion. A contact at the Job Centre provided her with information about Functional Skills UK and she undertook am English language and Business course. Completing these courses has provided her with valuable knowledge and skills, which she can utilize in her professional endeavours and effectively communicate with English-speaking clients or partners.
‘In the UK, I continue to develop my skills as a photographer, actively seek out clients, and conduct photoshoots. I strive to stay updated with the latest trends and techniques in photography, while constantly improving my craft. This involves marketing my services through various channels, such as online platforms and social media, and networking with potential clients and collaborators.’
