How long have you been a photographer? What pushed you on this path in the beginning?
 

I have been a photographer for 11 years.

When I started taking pictures, I photographed only for myself, I hardly showed my shots to others. It was also an introspective journey, I looked at my photographs and observed my changes, I was able to capture the moods of the moment, I understood that there was something about me.
Photography has always helped me to express my emotions.


Have you always wanted to make art?
 

I am not an artist and I never wanted to be,
Over time I have learned that the profession of the photographer is not only being able to express one's emotions but it is also a very technical job, you need to know how to manage the lights well, another fascinating and magical aspect of this beautiful profession, you need to learn and gain a lot of experience. to acquire all the technical skills needed to satisfy customer requests as in any other job.


Tell us about your favourite shoot.

My favorite photo shoot is the portrait, this magic does not always happen, I find it interesting that instant of empathy through the gaze with the person you see for the first time, sitting in front of me.

What inspires you?

It inspires me a lot to see the work of the great photographers of the past and of today.

How would you characterize your style?

I don't think I have a defined style, I like to experiment a lot.

What advice would you give to a beginning photographer?

I advise a novice photographer to continue following his dreams.
