Hello and Welcome – My name is Nikolay Mirchev, a London based portrait photographer with distinctive visual style.
Bit about my personal story: I was born behind the iron curtain in the country of Bulgaria, back in 1976. Growing in a small town, as a child I was always drawn to arts, poetry and drawing, but never had the chance to follow up on what I was loving to do and further develop my skills. After finishing my military duties as a young man, in 2003, I decided to move to London.
In 2005 I spent some time in a hospital while recovering after an operation. Then one day my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) came to visit and asked me “if I wanted her to purchase some magazines for me to read?” She then brought back a “Digital Photography” magazine.
Who would have thought that such a coincidence would lead me on an exciting journey to become a professional portrait photographer. Although, at the begging of my photography I was so much into travel and street photography – it took me couple of years before I realized that my main muse was for portrait photography.
Throughout the years, I have further gained new skills and completed various advanced courses in the areas of photography, image editing, CGI and VFX to be able to provide exceptional results for my clients. As a photographer and an artist, I believe that if you are a passionate person, then, there is no challenge which you can not overcome. This is why I believe that my style of photography is for everyone!
I encourage you to browse through my website where you can see not only portrait photography but also portfolios of travel and street photography I did over the years.
