“Through experimentation and research, I’m discovering different fields of photography and new challenges every day. I find the most satisfaction in photographing live beings, who with their uniqueness and transience represent unique specimen that needs to be documented. My focus is set on photographing portraits of people, animals and the nature. Portrait photography allows me to explain in my own way, how I see a 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 my perspective for people and the world that surround me. I focus also on people and their stories. I am particularly drawn to stories of people that are working in challenging environments and those who live in close bond with the nature.
For me photography is an artistic expression where I constantly try to catch the beauty of nature in its immortality, life in its contrast, and the right moment in eternity.”
