Thanks! Message sent.



I started doing photography professionally 10 years ago when I moved to London. At the beginning of my path I focused on portraiture but my passion for photography kept pushing me forward and I started discovering and mastering more photography genres that were challenging in terms of lighting, planning and post-production.

It didn’t take long and I ended up in Edinburgh studying full time commercial photography and retouching, finishing with Ba degree and distinction.

This helped me to fill gaps I had and gain comprehensive knowledge of lighting techniques, Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom and visual planning.

Now I produce, with current knowledge of the latest photographic trends and technology, a visual storytelling and branding for various companies and contribute to successful marketing campaigns that capture audience’s attention.
