My main focus is on fashion, portrait, and product photography. I constantly produce images for catalog, website and media marketing. I have also worked with various advertising agencies, with leading designers and labels. You can find me online under a name @linaswashere.
About meMy name is Linas Vaitonis and I’ve been working as a photographer / retoucher for more than 5 years. My photos are often featured on social media and I constantly produce (plan, prepare, light, compose, edit) images for catalog, website and media marketing. I have worked with various advertising agencies, with leading designers and labels. I have galleries representing me in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, New York, and sunny Shanghai.
I certainly don’t have the classical art school background because technically I’m an ecologist. Since I’ve got my master’s degree from Vilnius university, I have been working with various environmental projects, nature sciences laboratories and ecology consulting companies. I also worked as an editor for several years right after I finished high school. I started taking pictures just for fun. When I was twenty, I took my mother’s Nikon and started to shoot. I took pictures of literally everything.
Locating what is beautiful is always a challenge but the biggest difficulty I encounter creating my pictures is in making sure that the final images are just like I imagined them in my head. I like to play with unusual locations, trying to tell a story. In my opinion, the overall feel should be like in a movie, where the atmosphere plays an important role in transmitting the message. I'm striving to create a feeling that there is something yet to be revealed to come through in my work.

The future as seen from the past and the past as seen from the future. Photography becomes a useful and attractive artistic medium precisely because it takes advantage of the weaker point of art - its lack of touch with everyday reality.
There are quite a few biologists in my family, so I’m pretty much used to this discipline since childhood. I just like to know how the environment works around us and I’m interested in nature processes, connections, the surrounding world as a unit. Nevertheless, it has barely influenced my photography path I believe.
