 Why he does what he does…

I was born into a photography family. My dad, uncle and his brothers were all photographers. Since 1946 photography has been a part of my family and life.

In 2007 I “woke up” and I decided that I needed to reach a different level and  improve myself & work by “investing“ into my education and skill. Since I was 12 years old, I have realized that i need to improve every week or stop. That single decision, to be the best I could be, and deliver that to my clients was a turning point in my life. I started and continue to learn as much as I can by taking part in seminars, conferences and education.

10 years after that turning point I have traveled to more that 25 countries teaching and sharing my techniques.
