Hi! My name is Irina Glik.
I'm excited to meet you here!
Long story short. I have degree in civil engineering, legal and photography. My experience in the field of law allowed me to receive the Commendation of the Prime Minister of Ukraine. On this page I will share with you my achievements as a photographer.

I continuously strive for perfecting my skills through continuous education, as well as through research projects, published articles on photography topics and participation in photography contests.
I believe it is really important to be able to write at least a paragraph about a work of an artist. If you learn how to think, how to write and have a good work ethic I believe a lot of things can happen to you. That is why I have written and translated numerous art and photography articles in/into Russian/Ukrainian.
