My artistic journey began during my teenage years in Bulgaria. My father’s passionate obsession with photography carried over to me and I soon found myself pressing buttons and asking questions about aperture speed. A few years later I found myself a resident of sunny South Africa where the abundance of wild life is every photographer’s paradise. South Africa has 858 species of birds, 299 species of mammals, over 1200 insect species not to mention the stunningly beautiful flora and amazing sunsets. What drives me today is quite different from my past. I am an avid student of photography and I experiment regularly with the ever-changing technological landscape of photography so I can stay relevant. The satisfaction that I gather from my photographic art is enormous. Tossing my camera into my bag and driving off into a perfect African sunset leaves the realities of everyday life behind and turns my ordinary life into a dream come true.
