Tell us a little about yourself!
My name is Mazal Shavratov and I live in Vacaville California. I am sixteen years old and an early high school graduate from Vanden High School and I decided to do something I love this summer.
I was going through my Instagram page and saw a post about this internship and decided to send in an application. I was so excited when I was contacted about this internship and am ready to put my heart into it. My summer plans involve spending time with my family and friends, traveling, community service, and this internship.
What do you love about photography?
I love the entire concept of it, from start to finish. The creativity and the passion that goes into make an amazing photograph amazes me. It takes a lot of skill to be able to think of a great photo, take it, edit it, and make sure the client also loves it. Also, the satisfaction you get after finishing a shoot with beautiful pictures is amazing.
What are you passionate about?
I'm passionate about making an impact on this world, small or big. As long as I make people happy with what I love to do, I'm satisfied!
What are some small things that make your day better?
The small things that make my day better are my friends and music, especially when you put them together. I love sitting in a room with my friends and sharing music with each other on the loudspeaker.
What’s the last adventure you went on?
My last adventure started with my friend and I getting lost driving to a nursery for flowers. I wanted to go and get some flowers for Valentine's Day. I was hoping to take some nice pictures because the weather was amazing but we made a wrong turn somewhere and ended up in the middle of nowhere. I had to turn back and we never found the nursery, so we went to a flower shop that was recommended on Yelp. But when we got there...the building and shop were no longer there. We gave up the search and went to eat food instead. Even though we did not get flowers, it is an experience that will always be remembered between us.
What is your favorite food?
Mac and Cheese.
What is something that no one knows about you?
I speak three languages but when you ask me to translate I just pretend I did and say whatever I want.
Favorite thing to do on a beautiful day?
Take pictures of my friends or relax in the sun.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Both, depends on my mood.
Starbucks or Dutch Bros?
Starbucks, caramel frap all the way!
What are you excited about in the next 12 months?
Starting University, meeting new people, and enjoying my summer.
What are you grateful for right now?
I am grateful for being able to do something I have been passionate about for so many years.
