For four years.
As you look through the viewfinder, what is the most critical moment in capturing your image?
That moment comes from the feeling I get from the person, place and situation.
How would you describe your style?
It’s difficult for me to describe it. I always try to show their best side, it can be anything from fun to racy depending on them.

Every individual person, place and situation gives me a different feeling that inspires me in my work.
What does fashion mean to you?

If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
Depends the moment or location. But 24-70 and 70-200 are my essentials.

I can’t chose… I use both of them, flash at my studio and always natural light outside or if there is a big window.
What is your favorite photography accessory, other than your camera?
A nice snapback.
How important is Photoshop in your final images?
It is very important nowadays.

It is also very important. Maybe 75% of my business is generated through it.

I can’t work (or live) without music. I’m listening to RnB right now.
What advice do you have for somebody who wants to pursue photography?
Take your time, practice a lot, learn from each experience and of course, ENJOY!
What lies ahead for you?
