I early discovered photography although photography at that point did not become my main profession (or at least so far it has not). Luckily the fascination has no sense of time or place, and with time it did became clear that this the search for the perfect image will become a passion that will stay with me forever - although by definition the perfect image will never be found, but I keep on trying.

My very first picture at the age of two and a half

My genre is (almost exclusively) images of people, both in and out of the studio and I try to develop to get in touch with the hidden strings, to improve my capability to visualize thoughts and feelings in the perfect image, giving more than a reflection of the body, but more a shadow of the soul. During the last years, I have also taken a more serious approach to the technical aspects of photography, and learning how to master the image is a continuous work. I am working on both commercial and non-commercial basis, depending on the scope, use and content of the images.

If you like my style, feel free to call me to discuss the details for commercial assignments.

For non-commercial projects, I welcome models / stylists to contact me to discuss ideas and possible cooperation on fashion / portrait / fantasy projects.
