Photography makes me love and enjoy every second that i'm at work, I love the challenge that it creates, and I love how it pushes me to take the best of me outside to the world I'm enjoying being professional, and yet after each photo shooting I have this feeling that i accomplished and I learned something new I love working with people and meeting new people
Many different types of shoots appeal to me in different ways. Recently I enjoyed photographing special events and student portraits for the University of Melbourne. The event was exciting in terms of acting spontaneously to capture multiple scenes in multiple venues across a dynamic day of unfolding activities; whereas with portrait shooting I enjoy the quieter, intimate setting and the opportunity to get to know a diverse range of people. I find it particularly satisfying to learn about people, to find out how to best work with them, and to discover what it takes to help them feel comfortable and shine in front of the camera! When shooting events or weddings I'm see the task as a special mission that has been entrusted to me: I'm responsible for preserving peoples' special moments for ever. Keeping this purpose in mind is so is vital when shooting this kind of photography. In general, as a photographer the camera is my instrument, the tool with which I approach work as an artist. Being professional in everything I do, no matter what type of shoot, is my way of life.
