ABOUT ME

My first steps in photography started in 1997 with a Zenit film camera, ever since i fall in love with the craft and started to work part time in various assignements, from 2008 I’m running my own business full time.

I’m a photographer with passion for the craft and always driven with curiosity and experiment for new approaches and techniques.I am a curious world wanderer and a travel/documentary photographer. My main passion lies in nature sceneries and the human condition in unique situations.

My range of subjects is fairly broad, but whether I am photographing landscapes in a remote place far away from cities and large towns or everyday people’s life in the city, my common aim is always the same – to capture the human element and mother earth.

PHOTO APPROACH

Photography for me is a way of sharing and communicating with the rest of the world , it’s a constant progression towards new discoveries ,creative ideas and feelings.

My philosophy and approach about photography

Photography is the art of storytelling without words. You don’t just take a photo with your eyes, you take it with your experiences, emotions, and heart.

Photography is a way of looking at the world. It’s a way of seeing the outside world and capturing it with the light of your inner world. The more tuned in you are to your inner story, the more stories your photos can convey. Those stories do not need to be literal. If you’re sad, you don’t need to photograph someone crying to convey that emotion or story. You just need to view the world as you. A macro photo of a single drop of dew can convey a narrative of agonizing sadness, or delight and joy, if you let it.

Photography can be a tool for mindfulness. When you look through a lens you must be present to take in the sight, and orchestrate your shot. By focusing on what you see (the composition, the lighting, etc.) you are being mindful, whether you realize it or not. You are focused (literally) on the present moment and not worrying about things that have happened in the past or might happen in the future. You are in the now, at least for that moment
