What sparked your interest in photography?

Acquaintance with one good photographer, it seemed to me that her profession is very exciting!

Do you think you found your style?

We are constantly changing, and the style is a reflection of ourselves, now it is like that, and then time will tell.

What do you think is the most difficult part of being a studio photographer?

Come up with a concept, select professionals in their field: make-up artist, stylist, etc., well, and - correctly set the light!

What's your favorite shoot so far?

The one you published in your magazine!


What do you think are the biggest challenges in photography?

The biggest problems in photography are commercial orders that kill creativity but generate income.

Your technical skills look amazing in these images. Is there some kind of equipment that you always have on hand when you conduct a session?

I love to use a honeycomb dish and a big octobox.

What's the best advice someone has told you?

All the answers are contained in ourselves, learn to hear them! (various esoteric sources take this as a basis)

And what is the best advice you have / could you give to someone?

Absolutely the same as I stated above!


Your lighting in these images is phenomenal. What advice would you give to a future photographer?

To feel what the heart wants and to promote it to the masses!

Tell us about your editing process? Are you keeping it natural or do you have any special post-processing steps?

I am in favour of preserving naturalness, so that the person after treatment remains himself, but, without bruises, acne, dark circles under the eyes, not aesthetic volumes!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Still in creativity, hopefully in photography!)

Since this magazine comes out on New Years Eve, we have to ask: What are your plans for 2021?

Plans, stay yourself and find your audience. Get high from photo shoots, get small trophies in the form of publications in magazines! Feel that you are going your own way and the universe helps you in this! I wish everyone, in the new year, read the instruction manual for yourself to the end! And put it into practice!
