You may have seen Paulius’ stunning portraits and priceless shots on our
Awesomeness Fest albums as well as Culture Day celebrations, and he is perhaps the photographer behind everyone’s Facebook profile picture in Mindvalley 🙂
Having taken thousands of photographs for our company, we decided to ask Paulius for Top 10 Photos of Mindvalley personal picks – his own favourite moments from his time observing Mindvalley through his lens. Check them out below.
Discover Paulius’s portfolio at www.allisamazing.com.
Kadi Oja, Director of Publishing (2013) – “Kadi is so easy to photograph – her beauty really stands out on camera. We used this image for the launch of our mobile app, Omvana, it instantly became an icon for the brand.”
Khailee Ng, Entrepreneur and Managing Partner for 500 Startups, and Chin Xin-Ci, Entrepreneur; at the Great Gatsby party during Awesomeness Fest Phuket 2014 – “Khailee is a prominent personality in Asia. Working at Mindvalley lets me capture these personalities outside their offices, when they’re in their truest element, celebrating and experiencing joy.” This is definitely one of our top 10 photos of mindvalley.
Malaysia Day at Mindvalley (2014) – “The beauty about working at Mindvalley to me is the diversity. This image captures the vibrancy of the team very well. It still amazes me that I work with almost 40 different nationalities daily.”
Joyce Wong, Entrepreneur and Blogger at the Great Gatsby party during Awesomeness Fest Phuket (2014) – “My favorite part about photography is being able to capture that priceless fraction of a second and emotion that can never be repeated, that the eye normally misses or overlooks.”
Malaysians on Mindvalley’s Malaysia Day (2013) – “This is my all-time favorite shot from my portfolio of Malaysian portraits.”
The Mindvalley HQ in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2012) – “This was taken when we just launched the office space where the current Hall of Awesomeness is located (this is the entrance). This photograph is probably the most shared and recognizable image of the Mindvalley office today.”
Designers Rames Harikrishnasamy and Wong Chee Ling on Mindvalley’s India Day (2014) – “My comrades at the office. There is never a sad day when these two are around.”
Tania Safuan, Publicist and Branding Lead – “I’ve sat next to Tania for the past two years. She’s probably the most photographed person in the office. There is never a bad photo of her.” She is also in several of the top 10 photos of Mindvalley.
USA Day (2014) at Mindvalley – “Culture Days at Mindvalley are always fun. We dedicate the entire day to a national culture and co-workers from that country introduce us to their traditions, their music, their food. This is my favorite shot from all the Culture Days that I’ve photographed. Neither of them are American but they’re dedicated to the celebration.”
Vishen Lakhiani at the Mindvalley Hall of Awesomeness (2012) – “I’ve photographed Vishen for three years now, but this is my favorite by far. This was taken at our current Hall of Awesomeness back when it was still being built. We ended up never using this photograph, but this perfectly captures how I know and see him everyday – as a visionary who’s constantly “building” his dreams.”
Most people think that learning is the key to self-development
It’s how we were raised – when we were young, we studied algebra, read history, and memorized the names of elements on the periodic table.
But once you grow up and experience life, you realize that you can’t ‘learn certain things – like personal growth.
Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and New York Times Bestselling author, discovered that the key to self-development was not to ‘learn’, but rather, to ‘transform’.
