How would you describe your photographic style?
"My style is photojournalistic but with a dash of portrait and fashion because I love those genres. What I like about photography is that I can mix my imagination with reality. With drawing, you're putting your imagination onto paper, but with photography, it's a mix. When I think that a photo has something more to tell, I try to put it in black and white. Black and white makes you focus on the story and the subject, whereas colours change your emotions."
What's the most challenging element of wedding photography?
"The most problematic element for photographers is the post-production, which is enormous. The way we shoot now, after a wedding we have 8,000-10,000 photos and you have to go through all of them and pick the right ones, and edit them, and this is the part that we all would like to shorten. If you have the will to go out and take the photos, you may not have the will to sit behind the computer and do all the editing. Also, when you're at a wedding, you're there for 10-12 hours, and you're thinking all the time, you're dealing with emotions, the weather – there is so much going on, and then you come home, and you're in the dark behind your computer. So, it's really these ups and downs that are hard to take."
What's been the most valuable lesson you've learnt during your career?
"I never really cared too much about what's going on around me. I always tend to do what I like, no matter what's in fashion now. I have always been this way. I try to go on social media less, because I don't want to see what other people are doing. I try to stay as close and confined as I can to what I really like, and luckily people find me and book me for what I do. My clients trust me all the way."
What's been the proudest moment of your career so far?
"My first magazine cover, the first interview, this Canon opportunity – I am so proud of all these achievements. It's always really nice when these opportunities come your way. You have to cherish them."
