Meet ... Miks Ramāns - Camera Assistant & General Geek

As I've already mentioned in Sunday post - February is Peppercakes birthday month ! And in case of that (or maybe it is not the reason itself, who knows ?) we are experiencing here some changes (= improvements) - you noticed little changes is Happy Details layout and content which since now will have few categories like book, movie, song etc. so I won't bore you with 5 pics of my guilty meals, ha ... 

Another addition, which I am very excited to announce today is reviving PEOPLE chapter. This was always one of my favourites as I am keen on listening people's stories. Though I am definitely planning to resume filming videos, which translate longer and deeper conversations, right now I am presenting you an opportunity to meet interesting, inspiring people through the small questionnaire. Firstly, I want you to get to know closer people who occasionally pop up on Peppercakes - the ones I am working, creating and dreaming with. 

I had no doubts about the first person that should be interviewed - the one line with his name appears consistently on the blog for last few month, but his work makes the huge part of Peppercakes. Since October Miks does picture taking work for Peppercakes, but besides looking at my clumsy posing behind the camera, hanging with me in girly cafes and editing it all into beautiful photographs, he is much more.
