A short summary of 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, drawing, music (honestly quite everything) – just to name few, but never had the chance to follow up on what I loved to do or even further develop my skills. Shortly after finishing my military duty I decided to move to go abroad where, eventually, I settled in 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 for a visit and asked me “if I wanted her to bring me some magazines to read?” She then brought back a copy of “Digital Photography” magazine.
Who would have thought that such coincidence can take me on such exiting journey to become a professional portrait photographer. Although, at the begging of my journey, I was so much into travel and street photography (something I still do today) – it took me couple of years before I realized that my main muse was 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 about what you do, then there is no challenge big enough from preventing you to achieve great results. This is why I consider that my style of photography is for everyone.
