As a child, I loved spending time in my dad's improvised photography lab in the basement of our house. A room flooded with red light, in which magic happened as soon as you stepped in. I was mesmerized by the process of turning a blank page into an image with nothing but light and liquids. I then learned the basics about composition and geometry, darkness and brightness, and mostly about patience.
At the age of 18, I bought my first camera and some film rolls. I experimented a lot, and the following year I was back in a darkroom, studying the rules and laws of photography as part of my education in Art Direction.
Years later, I started a street casting agency named WANTEDD, we looked for unusual profiles in random places, people who would never think of modeling yet had a lot of personality. We made them work in advertising or fashion. In the process, we organized an individual photo session for each and every one of them.
Many sessions, hours and pictures later, I had 200,000 pictures on my camera's counter. That's how I learned more about portraits, models, fashion and studio work.
For the last ten years I've enjoyed photography for the freedom it gives me to express my creativity. Wether I'm travelling around the world, shooting a rock concert or taking everyday snapshots.
