Portrait Photography

As humans, we are all inseparably connected to the environment and other people. They shape us throughout our lives, help us grow and influence our ways of thinking and doing.

As a mainly documentary photographer who has a preference for candid moments, I usually don’t create specific scenes or backgrounds for portraits but rather take the challenge of working with what’s available to me at a given place and time.

I like to explore and express the relation between the person and the environment and capture both as a whole, showing the inseparable connection.

When working for some newspapers and magazines, this isn’t only a preference but a must because there’s no time to do long shootings and because the environment is an essential part of the story.

Throughout many years of working as editorial photographer I acquired the ability to quickly evaluate the environment, find optimal spots for photographing and make the best out of the situation.
