Edited by Odeta Catana, Photo Editor. Martina Woll Where do you live?
No, that didn’t happen to me. No one in my entire family has something to do with photography or any other creativity, accept my mother perhaps, who’s drawing sometimes. Actually, it all started with Star Trek, yes, star Trek. I’m a science fiction fan since i was a kid and as a teenager, I went to conventions to see all the sci-fi actors in real life. And some day, I wanted to take photos of them, so I bought my first camera for that reason. That was in 1999. Where does your inspiration comes from?
My inspiration comes from all the great photographers out there on the www. I could spend hours a day watching Flickr for new pictures of almost everything, people, nature, landscapes, animals, planes, urban and street … Watching the work of other photographers helps me a lot increasing my skills and my view of things. In a portrait, what is important for you?
I try to have a personal, relaxing relationship, as if we were friends; talking about anything and everything, laughing, joking, having a good time. Do you think it’s important to follow a school to learn how to shoot?
No, I don’t think so. I didn’t follow any school, I learned all by myself. My credo is: just take your camera and shoot, don’t waste time reading books and (camera) manuals and don’t listen to any rules or “teachers”, just do! What’s the photo you want to take and you never did?
Well there’s no specific one; I would love to travel the world and taking pictures of it, in a documentary way. But that will never happen, due to several reasons like no time, no money, no courage, no idea how What’s your photo-mission?
