The photography fascinated me long time ago, since my earlier childhood. I wanted to create arts, images, stories… The story begins about 25 years ago when I spent days in the photo lab of a friend of my father. I was fascinated by how a picture comes to life from paper and chemical ingredients and I am still bewitched! As my father saw my passion for photography he surprised me one day with my first camera, which was a Zenith – E, 36 mm film camera. I felt such a thrill! I fell in love with the possibility to stop moments in time, to capture a second from life and keep it forever…
I have always been a natural student of human behaviour, so I started with portraits and street photography. I had my fair share of out-of-focus shots and near misses, but the satisfaction of being out there and witnessing life through my camera lens was indescribable. At that time, I discovered Henri Cartier-Bresson work. Also, I was blessed with good teachers, which helped me to become more conscious about where my photographic interests were heading.
Flash forward, about 8 years ago I’ve moved to London, I bought my first DSLR camera and I start to learn from the best: Ansel Adams, Elia Locardi or Michael Kelley.
I’ve been worked hard to have the chance to open the doors of the photographic world and to build a strong reputation around my work. My pictures are published/posted now in national and international magazines, in a lot of books, on numerous websites and in many other publications.
I specialised myself in Interior design and Architectural photography. This field of photography requires technical ability, a methodical approach and a good eye for composition. I am working only with natural ambient light and I’m adding some extra flash lighting when and where needed.
The creative possibilities of interior design and architectural photography were a new challenge for me, and the more I learned about it, the more I wanted to know. I am passionate to take photos and to manipulate them to fit an artistic vision. My camera became an extension of my life and my eye began seeing things I had never seen before.
In my free time, I love to travel and to do thousands of pictures. I always have my camera and the tripod with me wherever I go. I love shooting Street photography, Landscape, Cityscape, Long exposure photography, HDR or Panoramas.
Photography has been my full-time passion and profession for 25 years now. So many time I’ve been saying, “to be a photographer is the most beautiful job in the world”. I chose to be a photographer and “je ne regrette rien”
