“By the way, my famous pic “On the Wave” was made in Dubai. This was an “accidental” shot. It was a usual commercial shooting for our client from Latvia, we were on the beach, and thought to shoot some interesting. Nearby there was a bridge, and I said: “Let me try to take a picture of you from above!” The sea was just a little restless, there was a wave, and this shot turned out. In fact, all the best is the result of the right moment.”
