We will cover the whole cycle of completing a commercial assignment, from working with a client to the final retouching in post-production.

I’m a mix of technicality, innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. I love taking on technical challenges in anything I do, including photography.
As a photographer, I am completely self-taught. I don’t know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don’t follow the herd, I do it my way. That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.
“…There’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much; my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… ”
The art of photography is my strongest passion. I believe its impact on people cannot be overestimated.
I was named among the 100 best young creatives in the US according to CMYK magazine, Fall 2012. My work was among 100 winners from all over the world in the Exposure 2013 Photography Competition.
In Fall 2013, I won 1st Place in the APA (American Photographic Artists association) National contest.
My images have been published in some of the most respected professional magazines in the USA: Communication Arts, PDN, Digital Photo magazine, CMYK magazine, Creative Quarterly, Photographer’s Forum, to name a few.
