Model Photographer

In 2006 I first became known to Miami Top Modeling Agencies as a testing photographer unlike any other. My awe inspired view of the world and people allowed me to see and capture that special, often hidden, beauty in every person I photographed. My child like ability to change refocus my attention quick made every photoshoot produced fast paced, generating multiplicity of various in style and content visuals, allowing models to leave with full portfolio from one session with me. To this day I love discovering new faces, help develop model's portfolios and help others see unique often hidden beauty within.

Within few years my professional practice evolved. I became a welcomed contributor to local, national and international print media, providing visual content in a form of portrait features, fashion editorials and advertising photography.
I constantly refine my style and intellectual take on visuals produced. I have become more efficient and creative. I continued my practice into mixed media creation, ideation and creative direction, with the overall goal to continue to inspire and share. I am in a constant pursuit of my dream to inspire each individual to feel special, intentionally grow professionally, while raising the landscape of quality content in the www for generations to come.

you-wake-up

You wake up…

Birds chirping outside your window, comfortable humming of the city life outside gently reminds you its about time to get going and while being away your night dream still lingers about the life you want to be living. A quick check of world's news and social media accounts once again calls to action - to get your image together and spurs up your space, so you can fit nicely into that dreamy future you are building.

With money you have been making you should be able to treat yourself. Besides, how we feel about ourselves affects how others perceive us. You sit with your coffee in hand and make a wish. Sudden thought pops into your head, you know what you are going to do.

Maria Lankina is back

Your determination rises. Today is the day. You kick your shoes off and open up your tablet. Google. Search. It catches your eye. Found ! Correction. Too many options. Some sound exciting. Choice is overwhelming. Your heart sinks and you mutter to yourself: "Confusing". You don't give up. You dive in deeper. You enquire about a few. You make sure to not do anything or ask anything to make them think you don't know what you are doing. You never know it all might just go smoothly. You can't tell if its worth investing yourself into. You have come across creative professionals in the past, even done business with a few, maybe this time you will get lucky.

nope

Nope

Few respond back and engage in negotiations with you. You sound like you know what you want. You swear to yourself if this time it works out, you hit the jackpot. Life is for living and with creative professional who sees your potential, on your side, will arm you tools to achieve results.

It all will be so much better! But first you have to make a choice and make a move.
