Photography for me started in 2005. Over the years I have tried out different mediums and subjects, which have gradually pushed me towards shooting people with old film cameras. Evolution in my photography has really been about eliminating all the unnecessary aspects in the image. I am obsessed about making a composition where the subject is supported by all the elements in the scene. I feel joy when all visual aspects come together and form a symbiosis. It is a very fulfilling feeling. When I use a big and heavy film camera on a tripod everything increases in value, movements become more calculated, images become more pure, moments become more rememberable - to me.

I strive to be the best at what I do and thats why I like to connect with other creatives who are on the same path. The true value of photography for me is that I can reach and connect with inspiring people with who I have the chance to create something unique in that moment. I am here to serve other people by shining the light upon them.. I would like to inspire others to follow their dreams by following the same advice myself and by speaking my own truth more every day.

..the path to discovery, remembering and purpose.
