OHMYCAMERA Product Photography Blog

This Is How It Started

Aleksandrs Karevs - OHMYCAMERA

Hello, I’m glad to see you here!

My name is Aleksandr Karev and I’m a full-stack digital marketer from Riga, Latvia. Since buying myself a SONY A7III mirrorless camera in 2018, I’ve been obsessed with photography. 

So enamored that I was able to merge my love for taking pictures with my wife Alina Kareva, who eventually became a professional product photographer. We are now a family of photographers dedicated to our craft, and even our 4-year-old son Nikita has shown interest!

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for at least nine years now, but I never did. I was afraid that no one would read it and that my understanding and ideas aren’t fantastic, nor is English my first language.

But after watching one video on YouTube in early 2022, I was so inspired that I finally decided to give it a try! The name OHMYCAMERA, the domain name, and this website were all created in just about a day.

Originally, I planned to write only about product photography since I have a good grasp on the subject and my wife possessed all of the professional product photography equipment (studio flashes, mirrorless cameras, C-stands, reflectors, etc.).

But then I decided that rather than restricting this blog solely to product photography, I’d like to write about marketing for photographers and other photo-related topics.

I don’t know what the future holds, but my goal is that this blog will serve as a resource for photographers who want to learn more about photography and marketing techniques for photographers.
