I love to work with people, create their personal histories and memories. In my opinion my fun approach frees every person to be themselves in front of my camera, revealing their true personalities and emotions. I connect my love of photography with a journalistic sense and artistic flair. I always try to reveal inner beauty of people and the joy of life and show all of this in one given moment. So I like being a family photographer. At the same time I love to work for creative businesses, publishers and photographic agencies. I like the collaborative process. I work in commercial and editorial photography with an emphasis on portraiture. There’s great satisfaction in seeing shots that were made possible by a team of passionate people: make up artists, stylists, producers and clients.
I love to do commercial photography even when I'm taking portraits. When you do a commercial shots you always have a purpose and a mission. Creating photos gives me great opportunity to connect with people. I love to work with passionate professionals in any areas. My photography career gives me tremendous opportunity not only to be creative, but also to be directly impacting many career and businesses. I believe that we can change the world we live in and make it a better place.
