In the past , this part was always the tough one, as I am more about taking photos and loving what I do, rather then talking about myself in third person. Bottom line is I love photography. And I love telling stories thru my lens. My life has been hell of a story itself, but that's not what matters.
What matters to me is that I know this game really well, and there is nothing else I'd rather be doing. I live and die to take that photo - just ask some of my clients: from getting stuck in a deadly desert to shooting in the crowded fishing ports of Africa. I have been thru quite a bit, but always managed to get the Shot -that's what it boils down to. For more formal story, please feel free to read my brief biography below. Thank you for taking time to read and taking a look at my images.
