About Me

Being born in Europe, grown up where Asia & Europe meets and living in the United States added a lot of spices to my perspective. If you are looking for non-traditional photographer who has unique eye, tell me your idea and I'll help you to develop & produce it.

I have commercial studio located at Alexandria, VA and portable professional light setup for on location or outdoor shoots.

Current Project: "Censorship"
I'm actively looking for models from different ethnicity who are comfortable with nudity to participate to the project. Send me a message for details.

When we are working together, i have few rules (unfortunately, there are some people doesn't aware of these):

1: In any shoots (TF, Paid, Hired or Test) I'm expecting 100% professionalism from the Model(s), we are in the session for one reason which is "to create unique photos", it's not a time to socialize.

2: I always come early to the location to foresee environment, set the lights and test the equipment. I'm expecting same from Model(s), Hairstylists and all creative personnel to do the same so that we can have briefing session. If you are running late, call...

3:  If I hired you for a project, shooting time starts when I hit the first shutter. So please come prepared and don't expect me to wait for an hour for you to get ready. Unless shoot requires extensive preparation.

4: I believe comfort is a priority to create beautiful images and I respect your limits, sometimes i tend to push them but if i feel there is any discomfort cause of anything, i give a break to session. Also If any reason you need a break please tell

5: I try to avoid touching or getting too close to models. I generally direct you verbally. If i fail to guide you then i ask your permission first before touching you to fix your pose, hair or dress etc. And i'll be stating what i'll be doing to avoid any discomfort.

6: I don't replicate other people's work, don't ask me to create a shot like X photo you liked. You can use other photos as a start-up to create a new idea, but it's always better if you just try to describe it.

7: I give directions during the shoot especially if i'm trying to achieve for a certain look but don't expect me to teach you how to pose, I'm not a modeling coach or art director, i'm a photographer.

8: Lastly, PLEASE, come to shoot fresh, relaxed, hydrated, have light meal and moisturize your skin.
