To capture and share the beauty around me. Things we take for granted every day - a beautiful sunrise, dramatic clouds, birds flying - in the hope people can deeply look at them, see and feel what I do when I look at them. I want people to look at my images and fully appreciate the beauty in the world, and find peace.
Everything that catches my eyes. Life is my great inspiration. I am able to freeze a piece of history, a unique moment in time that might never happen again. I can then look at it countless times, and all those memories come back, all those feelings and emotions put together, again. My camera is the tool that allows me to do it, but I capture true moments with my heart.
Photography. I tend to dislike labels as I believe the world of photography and art in general is too broad to restrict myself to one genre. I just love taking photographs. However, I tend to capture more landscapes, street and nature (mainly in black and white) as these fit more with who I am and match my personality. I see the world in a more artistic way and through my photographs, I share my feelings.
