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.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I pride myself at being a master in the field of commercial photography, creating fresh and exciting photos: combining the highest professional standards with an engaging experience, matching my photography style to the occasion: creative editorial, formal/business portraits, commercial food photography. My goal is to work with people who have similar belief system, people who share my passion for beautiful photographs. I will manually retouch each and every image to carefully turn pictures into timeless photographic Art.
