"Every photographer has a vision. I had mine at 12 when my father gave me my first film camera. Suddenly, this unknown world captured me and I started exploring the wilderness around the city where I was born. Today, as a professional photographer, I still like to experiment, explore different locations around the world, and let interesting subjects carry me beyond the subjects themselves. I also like to share my passion by teaching newcomers—and enthusiasts—my approach to photography."
