Hey, I'am Ako

Copenhagen, Denmark based Video Producer and Photographer. I’m working with creatives and brands to leveraging audiovisual sotrytelling. I’ve worked as a freelancer and an in-house producer within marketing teams. Most of my experiences entail video marketing, producing for software solutions, evergrowing communication paradigm shift and video enablement in an organization, video direction and execution, motion graphics animation, and broadcasting. Some extreme sports, documentaries, and events too.

A few things I love about life: basketball, rollerblading, street photography, and creative projects. The main aim of my pursuit is to create a piece of visual arts and a story that people would learn from and get pleasing emotional sensations while watching.

Brief history

The beginning
My first DV camera to capture friends doing extreme sports at the local skatepark of Jekabpils, Latvia.
A choice
Evolving inspiration for media creation led me to pursuit Multimedia Design specialists position while doing my high-school and working in a photo studio in Riga, Latvia. My first photography award in International Heritage Photographic Experience contest.
New beginning
Moving to Copenhagen, Denmark. A lot of street photography and cleaning jobs that led to meeting my first production manager and beginning my own freelance career.
TwentyThree, SaaS, B2B
High pace of production led to the first in-house producers job at a Copenhagen based Marketing Technology company that provides a video marketing solution. Got to live in San Francisco for a year and move back to Copenhagen.
Virgin year at the Burning Man
Community in San Francisco opened doors to be present at the most amazing festival on the planet earth. The years theme was Metamorphosis, on point!

Natural progression, an amazing case customer scale-up, at the time, used the previous product I worked for to succeed with their video marketing efforts and hired me as an in-house Video Specialist.
