Everybody knows me as Tess over Internet. I live in Riga, Latvia.
I have been fond of animals since my childhood and at a certain point I understood that cats have a special place in my heart more than anything else.
I have been doing photography for more than seven years, and started taking photos of cats six years ago. Due to my sociable nature and continuous search for new friends, I spend a lot of time at different cat shows, getting acquainted with breeders and other animal lovers. And it so happened that my enthusiasm for photography became linked to my passion for cats -- rather successfully, to my mind. At first I took my cat photos at home, and then, later, in the studio.
Today, I can do my photography work either at home, or in the studio -- always using professional equipment. I also work at cat shows in the Baltic countries and go out on location to Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian and Scandinavian catteries on request.
