I am Eastern European (Bulgarian) photographer & graphic designer. I am highly motivated, easy going and very enthusiastic person, who used to model before turning around the camera. I graduated with a BA degree in Arts – Graphic Design from California State University Norhtidge, in Los Angeles, California.
In my early years, I lived and studied in the relatively large city of Stara Zagora. Later, when I moved to San Francisco, California, USA I met many great photographers and models, which I had the pleaser to work and learn from. Photography is not just snapping photos to me; it is a way of thinking. I can look at something and frame it in my mind, see the kind of light to use, the angle, and the pose. Most of all it’s about the mood, the emotion and the message I am trying to convey. I am a professional creative photographer specializing in portrait, wedding, engagement and prom photography. I offer as well personal, family, children and babies/infants photo sessions. I am able to cover a wide gamut of holidays and events such as baptism, birthday, nameday, and others. In my free time I love to experiment with commercial, fashion, advertisement, boudoir, interior and product photography. However, people are the most interesting subject for me . I am a very huge proponent of mixing natural with artificial light. My favorite kind of photoshoots are creative outdoor location projects, where combining available sun light, speedlights and strobes. I love to shape the light depending on my vision. Often I work with team of photographers, assistants, hair stylists and make-up artists. I retouch my own work most of the times.
Many thanks to some of the people, who helped me get into photography and keep me inspired to learn from and develop are Chris Orwig, Mark Wallace, Jay P. Morgan, Jeff Cable, Matt Granger, Michael Zelbel, Jared Polin, Pye Jirsa, Kai Wong, Lee Morris, Patrick Hall, Von Wong, Karl Taylor and Scott Kelby.
