Meet your host

I came across photography quite early in my life since my father shared his interests with me. I graduated the AKTO Art & Design College with a BA Honors in Photography validated by Middlesex University. I started working as a freelance photographer around 2002 after taking part in many photography contests and exhibitions. Commercial photography is a major subject in my career since I’ve been working in a studio using large and medium format cameras. Landscape and architectural photography are my favourite themes combined with the latest editing tools for an absolute fine result.
