This week’s dose of inspiration comes from Berlin. Moran Shavit is a super-talent photographer. She is an example of how a hobby became a profession. She enjoys seeing the world through her lens, and we are in love with her vision.
Let’s see the photos and get to know Moran Shavit through her answers to our 5 Creator Questions this week:
Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Moran Shavit; I’m a photographer and a yoga teacher residing in Berlin with my partner and two boys.
I’ve been carrying a camera with me since I was a teenager and took it to a professional path later on in my twenties.
Up until today, I enjoy capturing all kinds of beauty and emotions through my lens.
How did you get started?
After working in a job that didn’t suit my professional aspirations, I’ve decided to take steps to start my own business.
A series of experiences brought me to realize the kind of photography service I wish to create and led to the sessions I’m offering.
What sets you apart?
I offer photo sessions, perhaps in a less conventional way.
What I provide is an experience, a modest, intimate ritual that gives space and attention while allowing celebration of whatever there is, here and now.
What obstacles did you have to overcome?
I have lived in Berlin for several years already, but I don’t know if dealing with the German bureaucracy is an obstacle that I’ll ever be able to overcome. I have taken some great steps, though! Also, I have made a website by myself and been satisfied with the outcome. . . . Thank you, IM Creator!
Do you have any tips for other creators?
If you’re overwhelmed with bureaucracy and all the business side of things, reach out for help. I found that meeting a coach was very helpful. My coach helped me navigate through a system that I wasn’t familiar with and also helped me to be more objective toward the things that are indeed objective (even though we might have the tendency to make them personal).
