Photography allowed me to have a deeper connection with people and the environment I live in. And as a naturally curious person that gives me the outmost satisfaction.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done all kinds of shoots. I mean ALL kinds. And each has something that makes it special. I shot a beer factory and got to see first hand how beer is crafted, I shoot fashion a lot and it's so much fun to try and create something unique with the models and the clothes they re wearing.
