How and when did you get into photography?
My journey with photography started back in 1997. Like every beginner, I've started to take photos of everything. But I've realized I do enjoy taking photos of people the most. Since 2019 I I’ve had my own photo and make up studio. My wife is qualified makeup artist, she helps me a lot. She was my first model too. I make portraits and sensual workshops because it is my favorite type of photos. But I also work with women’s and men's clothing, product and bussines photo sessions..
What does photography mean to you?
Most of all – beauty, emotions, and story of life. Freezing time in a shot people's beauty and emotion, capturing the moment.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I love people and interacting with them, so I concentrate on this kind of photography, in particular portrets and sensual photography.
Where do you get inspiration from?
Pretty much anywhere, but movies, comics, Pinterest and Instagram that I grab and develop to something new In our times, the Internet is the greatest treasury of knowledge and inspiration.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
Spontaneous shots, which often result from the earlier planned effort, are my favorite kind. It's enjoyable to change the plan, to get carried away by your imagination and surprise yourself.
Studio, on location or both? Definatly both, but I feel I have more controll in my studio. In the other hand working outdoors. it gives me a greater opportunity to express my creativity.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
I have it as a hobby that is way I do what I want not whatever gets the likes up,. I truly love doing it.
