Inese Aleksa - AirBnB host, Photographer | Latvia

Thanks to Airbnb, I became an interior photographer - they found me on social networks (then I was filming, mostly portraits and people), offered cooperation and taught interior photography in practice, sending video materials, tutorials and helping to edit photos year after year. After a couple of years, I started to receive orders from other companies: hostels, IT centers, private developers, office centers, etc. I didn’t really work on my portfolio, there is a website where some of my works are represented so that a private customer can see what he can eventually get. I receive private orders not through the website, but through personal channels. If the company is satisfied with my work, they recommend me to other companies. Latvia is a small country, here works the word of mouth principle.
