Marek Metslaid is a freelance photographer and videographer, who specialises in event, food and fashion photography. Currently residing in picturesque Tallinn, Estonia. Albeit he loves it here, he is always willing to travel for the right job
“I don’t take photographs to make money, I make money to take more photographs.”
Our story begins in the tiny coastal town of Haapsalu, Estonia. Born in 1986 just in time to see the Soviet Union crumble to pieces, he manages to secure an old Zenit-E from his grandfather. The world changed that day. And that is where it all started.
Funny how a chunk of metal that looks like it fell from a tractor could fuel a passion for a lifetime. I have to hand it to the Russians, their approach “What-isn’t-there-can’t-break” made the Zenit-E a perfect learners camera. No automatic gizmos to help you out. Just you, and the shutter dial. This might be where he got his “Less-is-more” attitude from.
Now that you know who you are up against, let’s work together! Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions regarding my work, pricing or wellbeing. There is no photo or video project that I won’t take into consideration.
