I love to be entrusted as a witness of someone's special occasion and event. Being entrusted with such responsibility gives me a lot of joy.
I have professional experience in many types of photography. Events in general are my main field, they are the most challenging, funny and rewarding photographic experiences. I also practiced fashion, product, architecture, etc.
I am one of the 30 finalists of 2016 Moran Prize in the contemporary photography category. It's one of the richest photography prizes in the world and in 2016 they had more than 100000 entries, so it was a very great achievement for me.
