…………………………….

My roots are from Bulgaria where I graduated with a degree in Philosophy and Radio Journalism from Sofia University. Initially I worked at different radio stations – in the beginning as a reporter on the field, later I built up a career as a radio presenter. Subsequently moved to Belgium where I founded my own company and currently I am a freelancer. 

Last 10 years I have been keeping myself busy with making photography. I am so much initiated into it, because photography has opened a whole new world to me. Over the years I have been learning how to make photography by self training and lots of practice. No doubt this gonna be a never ending process where I am putting my efforts and time with great pleasure.

Travelling all over the world is a passion and a way to feed my insatiable curiosity and frenetic search for knowledge. I travel in pursuit of adventure, experiencing moments or just chasing the light and working with it. I find it very emotional and challenging to observe the world surrounding me and “freeze” it in a frame. In my work I seek a strictly personal narrative. I am trying to understand the inner world of the people I meet, but also the impressive content of the external reality and all deep philosophical questions that I am intensively pursuing. In recognition of my work I have won numerous awards at international level.

When I am not behind the camera, you can find me having good time with my wife and two children.
