This is me - Arita Cimermane. Originally I am from Latvia, but now I am living in Germany. Who am I? Owner of Photo Studio in Germany, Photographer and Make-up Artist with Bachelor's degree of humanitarian science in Philology. That would be a short description, but it will say, I think, a lot. Yes, I love being creative, work with people and write. Write? About what? Really- for anything, what is important by that time in my life.
Maybe for this time I will tell a little story about my first job experiences. My first job was being a Baby-Sitter. But then I grow up my skills :) and was even a Private teacher of English and Latvian grammar and literature for school year kids.
Ohh, that was really interesting! You know, I really love teaching and I realise that only, when I started to do so. That was in the time period, when I was 16…to 21 years old. That is how I really learned, how to be patient! Yes, they were kids, and they needed a time to learn new things..just like us, the Big people, I mean adults. And it is so awesome now to see, how they how grow up and now are really successful persons! Yes, they are in my social networks, so I know it!
Oh..I forgot to mention, now I am 21..no..I am feeling that way, really I am 29. And so - soon I will step in new “box” [this you must read in really serious voice] “Please check your age: ..from 18-25…from 26-29..and..from 30-35…” Yes, yes soon I will be there. Am I excited? And how do you think? Maybe - there I better don't say anything. Ok.. let’s go further.
Before stepping in the BIG jobs. I was doing some fun things to have more money..ohhh..don’t get me wrong. I mean just “Job”. Most welcome memories was about time, when I was working in the Supermarket. I was 16 or 17 and I had a really important job - I was packing costumers groceries. I have always been (and I am also now, of course) very responsible person, and I did this work very accurate.
And that was this one terrible day, which I could name “Big-Lost-Fish or What we will eat in super?”. Till now I remember that with big smile!! I was packing one’s lady’s tomatoes, bread, cheese..everything, with a big smile on face (we were supposed to do so:) )..and the Lady paid the money for all her grocery, and I gave her (very happy) all her buyings beautifully packed in bags! Minutes were going, there were no new costumers, I was peacefully looking around and… put my hand on baggies. Oh! I felt something squeeze, I looked what is it underneath. It was BIG fish with BIG tail! “Oh my! I have forgotten to put it in Lady’s grocery bag.” I felt, how my heart was beating! I grabbed this big fish by tail and ran like a Forest Gamp. “Where is she, where?? No, no..” I was running in my terrible red Supermarkets apron and l was looking for some while, but didn’t found her. So I was so upset and felt guilty, that I made such a mistake. My mood was off.. But, despite of my terrible “Lost Fish day”, soon my carrier was going up!:)
After some week or two I was now proud worker in Supermarket's Bakery "department". And of course there was new funny and not so funny accidents. I was responsible to give and wrap tasty cookies, sweets and… cakes! Yes, I needed to put the cake in carton box and wrap with ropes few times, so it was really secure. Oh my, every time I was scared, that for sure, for 100%, I will drop the cake down! Now it feels so funny, then not at all! You know what - I didn’t drop any, even not once! Only one time I was so close - I wrapped the box less times, I should. I realised it only, when I gave the Cake in box to costumer in hands. All day I was waiting, that this costumer with very angry face and smashed cake will return, but, thank God, it didn’t happened.
One more thing - for half of day I was supposed to work in Supermarket's Bistro. Why only few hours? I really don’t know. Maybe because it was the first 30 minutes, when I brake a glass, while washing it. Yes, so..then I was only some 18 years old, I was happy, that I was having some job. There was even more some “little jobs”, but these are my brighter memories. And all that was a good experience..now I know how to beautifully wrap the presents (because of those cakes)! :)
After that I had more serious works - two years in Latvian Information Agency LETA as a Media Monitoring Specialist, then four years in Parliament of Latvia in Public Expenditure and Audit Committee. Time was going, there were more education, more courses, and I come, where I am now - Creative Family and Event Photographer and Professional Make-up Artist in my own Photostudio in Germany, Seelbach.
Why I wanted to write this to you - for some it maybe just an entertaining post, but for those young people, who are just starting out in their carrier journey, I want to say - don’t be afraid to begin somewhere, because it all goes and goes, and always ends in a good “place”! I wish for everyone to do, what they really love!
Some time later I will write, why and how i become a Photographer and Make-up Artist, and what adventures I have in this field by now!
Best wishes, Arita
