About Me

Hi there,

Welcome to my page!

I am an internationally published, gallery-represented photographer residing in San Francisco Bay Area.

- With over 15 years of experience, I still strive to learn something every day so I do a lot of experimental work, mostly on the spectrum between fine art and fashion editorial. I also enjoy a more sensual style, given the idea is original.

- I do not do collabs for the work that's similar to my current client's work (for obvious reasons). So even though I gladly accept work in the realm of advertorials, social media content, professional headshots, comp cards, or lifestyle, this is going to be a commission, not a collab.

- I don't do weddings and events. As for pregnancy portraits, portraits for kids, and family portraits - I do them if you are ready to take a more cinematic/storytelling approach to things.

- Working on portraits of creatives (artists, designers, engineers, scientists) is my special gem. It's commission work at this point, but it's my favorite work ever.

- I love to do commission work for brands, but only if I like the brand aesthetics and I am allowed to keep my own voice in the project. I have done my fair share of e-commerce button-clicking and I am happy to not do that anymore.

- Once in a while I do collabs with outstanding designers. But it's important for me to not only be inspired by your work but also have a compatible creative process. I like to work extremely closely with the designer and team during these collabs.

Final note: I prefer the old-fashioned approach of working with muses, not models. It's your spirit, personality, and ideas that ignite the chemistry. I like to work with people I respect and admire. I feature them, talk about them, publish them, and include their interviews on my 100k followers' page. So please, if you write to me, tell me about you. Not your parameters, but what makes you tick.
