When did your passion for photography start and what were the main milestones that turned you into the artist you currently are?
It began with my friendship with other photographers) I've worked as a fashion stylist for several years. My friends and fellow photographers have made me fall in love with this job. I have made my final choice when I took the camera.
Has your vision and style evolved or changed over time?
Yes, I am changing myself and so is my vision. It has become more important for me to show not only the external beauty, but the personality
How has photography influenced you as a person and what do you love most about being a photographer?
I am learning who I am through photography, I'm discovering love to myself, to women, to the female body. Photography has taught me to see beauty in everything. Now photography is the way to express my vision. Most of all I love the possibility to tell stories about women and about me.
What inspires you and what gives you ideas to create your beautiful images?
I am inspired by everything that surrounds me: people, events, places, movies, art. I love to look for and find beauty and inspiration for my photography in everything.
Can your ideas change depending on the model you are working with?
Yes, of course, I am always inspired by the model. While shooting, I can see her from a different perspective and change the original idea.
From your point of view, what makes the shoot successful?
Thorough preparation, thinking over the moodboard and other details concerning the shoot, keeping in touch with the team and models. Also it's essential to ask what I am doing now, so mindfulness is the key to success.
In addition to being sharp and well lit, your photos are beautifully edited. What is your retouching/production philosophy?
I prefer to do a good job in the process of shooting, so that the retouching is minimal. My philosophy is to show the natural beauty of the model
Fashion can be a somewhat unforgiving industry with a lot of egos, how do you deal with it on set or behind the scenes?
I have been working at fashion weeks for several years, and I am always lucky to work with talented, interesting people in one team.No matter if it's on the set or behind the scenes, we all should respect each other and our love for creativity. It all depends on the person.
If you couldn't be a photographer, what would be your other career choice?
I've been into painting since my childhood so I would become an artist.
What is one last impression you want to leave in your photographs?
I want to provoke different feelings, because everyone is different, so any feeling is much better than no feelings at all.
What has been the highlight of your career so far and what are your hopes/dreams for the future?
For me, teaching has become the highlight of my career, I'd like to inspire my students, share my experience and vision.
As for dreams, I want to travel with my workshops around the world in the future.
I also study phototherapy and I'm dreaming about my photo exhibition in this kind of photography.
