What does photography mean to you?

For me, photography is the realization of my feelings, mood and knowledge of people with whom I work. There are no borders and frames in the photo, it is always interesting to get to know the person from the inside and give him the same opportunity

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I am a person who shoots people, I don’t have a clear style, but my photos will be recognized. This is underlined and it is different in subjects, but characteristic of those who know me.

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

Hard to say. I do not take it on purpose, for the shooting itself is inspiration. The process itself is interesting and sometimes you don’t know where it will lead you.

 

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Yes, most often I know what I want, but sometimes I trust fate and inner feelings

 

Studio, on location or both? 

Yes, most often I know what I want, but sometimes I trust fate and inner feelings

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I consider myself a professional, but I always move forward.

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

There are many of those. There are significant people or moments in my life. There have been shooting that you will not be able to repeat, and for the models of this was the last photo shoot

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Sony)))) I shot a lot on the canon, but for very different reasons I switched to Sony and do not regret it. 50mm

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Always think and not take a lot of frames. A lot to watch, copy and watch someone. Give the models themselves to live in the frame.

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

I really like this format. Print magazines almost died and they all went online. This is the future and this is beautiful.
