How and when did you get into photography? As I was missing all my friends and family back in Bulgaria, I needed something to help me accept my new life in Belgium.
What does photography mean to you?
Except from my kids, photography means the world to me. I feel confident, free and adventurous behind the camera.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
I always know how I would like the picture to look like.
Studio, on location or both?
