My name is Virginia Y. and I’m an internationally published advertising and fashion photographer based in Europe. My photography is showing my client’s work in the best possible light. Literally… =) I invite you to a photo shoot with me and see it for yourself. The best thing about my clients’ list is that it’s constantly growing, which for me is the best sign that when you do something with all your heart it always gets noticed. My passion to develop my photography knowledge and share my experience led me to the opportunity to educate others on different workshops and seminars and also this is how the idea for The Fashion Photography Podcast became reality. Through the years I’ve learned there are just a few things you have to do in order to call yourself a happy person. You have to love what you do, you have to give your best, you have to show the others you value their opinion and also – you have to constantly learn and improve yourself. I know it because I’m definitely a happy person! Just like the people I work with!
