Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.

“Through experimentation and research I’m discovering different fields of photography and new challenges every day. I find the most pleasure in photographing live being, who with their uniqueness and transience represent unique specimen that needs to be documented. My focus is on photographing portraits of people, animals and the nature alone. Portrait photography allows me to present and explain in my own way, how I see the topic and present it to the viewer with a mixture of personal approach, small details and passion. Photography has changed the way of my thinking and looks at people and the world around me. My main focus is also on people and their stories. I am particularly drawn to stories of people working in challenging environments and those who live in close bond with nature.
For me photography is an artistic expression to constantly try to catch the beauty of nature in its immortality, life in its contrast and the right moment in eternity.”
