Untitled photo

Thank you for stopping by and being interested in my work!

When a picture is taken it is meant to be seen by others. Like Ansel Adams said, “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer”.

So welcome to my website!

What is photography for me? It is like writing books, making speeches, or painting on the inspired theme. This is how I see the world and tell others about it. Photography helps me slow down and enjoy the beauty of anything I happen to be around.

I became friends with photography when I was twelve. My dad gave me a nice camera (Zenith) for my Birthday. I was afraid to touch it as it looked too professional to me. At the same time I was really intrigued and was dying to see that “machine” in action and what it is capable of! Besides the technical side of photography, my dad also taught me that photos can keep our memories alive! Isn’t that wonderful? We can rely on this tool and record what we find beautiful, interesting and important and share all that with others! At about the same time, when I got my first camera on my Birthday, in my English class our teacher was demonstrating big colorful photographs of London Sights. My AWE reaction was obvious and I wanted to know those people who gave us that chance to “ visit” London or “to travel” without traveling!

A 12 -old's thinking was - how great it would be to create something like those photos and give others a chance to see the world through my work! And I started dreaming that maybe one day my new camera will help my dream come true! My Dad encouraged me to travel and the best time for me was to come home with lots of pictures and share everything I had seen with my dad. He would be very patient listening to my long stories, and hinting at how to improve my shots. He was always happy to look through my photos and he used to say that he felt as if he had traveled with me and seen all that himself. That's when I knew I was on the right path to my dream! And for me it was priceless and very inspiring as I treasured those moments spent with my dad. And I keep doing that for all these years!

I always loved how by means of photography I am able to share the beauty of the world around me with others. As if all the viewers go on a trip with me and travel without actually traveling like I once felt looking at those posters of London sights in my English class!

Around the World photography will take you on trips to different parts of the world and my Photo Books can be used as pictorial guides when traveling, that help remembering the unforgettable trips you have undertaken once, as bucket list inspirations, or even as a tool which helps creating a positive psychological effect on brain which helps in healing and also has a calming effect on those in need. Here I am on a mission to deliver the beauty of the world to you through the viewfinder of my camera.

Nature and Wildlife photography give me the feeling of being closer to our creator as if He is letting me into all his private places, sometimes unreachable or unnoticed by others to deliver them to the world! I feel like I am on a mission here!

Portraits can tell a lot about people! My photo shoots will tell interesting stories. Love to take pictures of families. It's like  I am a witness who  records precious moments of life stages which can be shared and viewed by next generations. Isn't that awesome!? Become a part of my personal project of Reflected in Time shoots (or Time Mirror Sessions)! 

I am sure that photos is the link to the past and can make our memories last long. We can find beauty in anything that seems so trivial to us by directing a viewfinder towards it!

My collection of photographs wasn't born over night, it shows my growth and improvement over the years!

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

➢" To speak technically photography is the art of writing with light. But if I want to think about it more philosophically, I can say that photography is the art of writing with time. When you capture an image you capture not only a piece of space, you also capture a piece of time. So you have this piece of specific time in your square or rectangle. In that sense I find that photography has more to do with time than with light".  

(Gerardo Suter)

➢ "We know that photographs inform people. We also know that photographs move people. The photograph that does both is the one we want to see and make".

(Sam Abell)

➢ "The picture represents the feelings and point of view of the intelligence behind the camera."

(Alexey Brodovitch)

➢ "I do believe strongly in photography and hope by following it intuitively that when the photographs are looked at they will touch the spirit in people."

(Harry Callahan)

➢ "For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. "

(Henri Cartier-Bresson)
