Like many people, I began “shooting” as a kid. I started with a film camera for beginners one summer break. When I started making money, I bought my first SLR (in 1995) and focused mainly on street photography. The turning point in my career came in 2010 when I bought a digital SLR and signed up for a workshop in Scotland. I completely succumbed to the magic of landscape photography and it became my obsession.

When photographing landscape I stay in one place for a long time. I pick one motive and take pictures until I am perfectly satisfied with the result. I like shooting from various, often unnatural, angles and watch the result change with the angle, light, weather.

I am not a complete minimalist, but my main rule is that less is more. Fewer shots, fewer distracting elements in the shot.

Since 2012, I have been organizing charity exhibitions from my travels.

I use a Canon EOS 5D III. My favorite lenses are Canon EF 14mm and Canon EF 16-35mm.
