Renata is a Manchester-based photographer from Lithuania. She brings a wealth of experience as she has been a full-time pro for over 5 years!
How did you get started in photography?
All my life I was always trying to find ways of expressing myself through art form...Drawing, painting, sculpture...photography was one of the mediums that stuck the most and I am so fortunate to be able to actually earn my living doing what I love.
What has been the highlight of your photography career so far?
My journey and growth through meeting new people, creating amazing work, collaborating with different artists is the most exciting part of my career. Its always really rewarding when your test work gets published or you have happy clients. It never stays still and you never know what other project will bring you.

This was the first editorial I shot that got published, ever!
If you could photograph anyone in the world who would you shoot?
I don't really have an answer to this question as there are so many beautiful, cool, interesting people. It wouldn't feel right to highlight anyone in particular.
If you could do a shoot anywhere in the world, where would you shoot?
I love travelling so if I could combine two of these things that would be amazing! But there is one thing I haven't tried before...underwater. That would be great to explore!
What can customers expect from a photoshoot with you?
I like to keep things really chilled and make my customers at ease if I shoot portfolios. I try to bring the best out of situation, location and subject. If I shoot a new collection line with designers I keep it well organised so we have enough time to go through all garments. I make sure we have a clear vision of the shoot and making the most to bring it to life.
What is your favourite thing about being on The Shoot?
I like its simplicity! It's a very cool and fresh way to find a photographer you would love to work with.
