Photography is a powerful medium that can capture the essence of a moment and tell a story through images. For me photography is a part of my life.

Like many, I started my journey in wedding photography back in 2010, but after the lapse of years (in 2017) I quit it, realizing that everything that could be achieved and done in this genre had already been achieved and we needed to move on.

In addition, over the years he has participated in exhibitions in Europe and the USA.
My works are placed in galleries and auction houses in Denmark, Holland, England, USA.

I chose photography as my main genre, which can give something to the viewer, tell a story, make you think. These include portraits, staged photography, concept photography, and advertising photography. Everything where it is not enough just to press a button, but you also have to work with your head.

I enjoy working on photography in the same way that artists work on paintings. Developing, sketching, applying layer after layer until you get what you want. That is why, working with me, customers are confident in the quality and level of the result obtained.
