About Desislava

Dururing my life I had the opportunity to gain extensive professional and personal experience. In high school I studied Furniture production and design where I had the opportunity to learn different design methods and techniques and develop an extreme eye for detail. During my Bachelor's degree I wanted to improve something I really love – writing and communication, that's why I decided to study Journalism. During my studies I acquired excellent communication skills and how to work with social media. Before I graduated, I had the opportunity to get an internship in one of the local newspapers - Black Sea, and the local center of our national television - BNT2. During this time I learned a lot about the work process in different media. During my studies I was working on a ship as a stateroom stewardess, where I got promoted to the highest position in my department – Executive housekeeper, managing a team of 13 people. By nature, I am highly ambitious and I decided to combine 2 academic years into one, and complete my education 1 year earlier. My whole journey till now gave me the chance to expand my horizons, improve my organizational and time management skills, develop the leader in me and learn to be persistent and never give up. I am a perfectionist, I put a lot of pride in my work and if it’s necessary, I don’t have a problem with running the extar mile. After my graduation from the University, I moved to Ireland, there I was working at The Merrion Hotel Dublin, again in a managerial position. Seven months later, I took the decision to quit my job, invest in one of my hobbies – photography, and turn it into a business. I'm a fast learner and I like challenges. Parallel with creating the studio I completed a graphic design course, pre-printing and printing advertisement materials. I have been practicing this since I opened my studio on the 3rd of March 2019 in Varna, Bulgaria till 13th of March when was the first lockdown. As part of my work in the studio, I was organizing thematic family and children photo shoots, portrait photography and sometimes fashion and erotic ones. I also capture parties and events, like weddings, baptism, birthdays, club photography, product promotions and more. In my free time I like to take landscape photos and work on my own projects. Other than that, I do design and prints of advertisement materials. Interacting with people from different nationalities and backgrounds, changed my perspective and vision for life. An example is the Erasmus+ project I took part in, where I was training people with disabilities how to make better photos and videos. This experience helped me gain more confidence in the number of skills I have and showed me that I can pass it on. It enriched my cultural knowledge, proved me once again my leadership potential. I have a great desire to build a career in the film and tv industry and I want to contribute to society, add value to people’s life, and give a meaning to everything I do.
