I catch myself thinking that I am with and without a camera in my hands are two different people. I like to be in the atmosphere of the event and stop moments, leaving them in the memory forever.
It is very difficult for me to describe my style in one word. I try to be modern, but my approach is based on classic photography with a focus on photojournalism, editorial, candid photography and timeless portraiture. I believe that all couples and weddings are unique and I try to approach each individually. I like when the couple is open, trusts me, remains by itself and allows me to be myself in my photography.
My photo is very intuitive and goes from my soul. Maybe because I'm not studied photography. I'm very focused on details in not traditional ways and also try to tell stories through the atmosphere and essence of your day.
I can tell you about participation in various associations, about the ranks of the Photographer of the Year, recognition of magazines, being in the Top according to a version of something, refereeing very significant photo contests. YES, it’s all there, but it’s unlikely to be related to your event. For me, all this is the past and with each new shoot I start from scratch and do my best to make everything even better.
NOT ONLY A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER:
I am a simple person like all other people, I just like to photograph everything in a row with what I have in my hands. Documentary photography is my passion. Perhaps someday in the future I will decide to work for some news agency. From the recent, I liked the experience of visiting the Berlinale Film Festival as a guest, but also as a photographer. In addition to weddings or with them, I try to travel a lot. Japan is the most remote corner where I was lucky enough to visit and want to return.
