I think it is important to have fun during a photo shoot. For a moment, don't be so self-conscious and self-critical. Everyone can be beautiful, as long as you relax. I will wait for the moment in which the connection between people is perceptible. A proud look, a hug, a sparkle in the eyes. I will capture your smile.
Photographing makes me happy. So does traveling. Taking photos while traveling is the best thing in the world. I see more, smell more, feel more. I see beauty, colour and composition in everything around me. I open my eyes, take time for an encounter, sit down for the sunset. My camera helps me to admire the world, and the people within it.
