I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria. The magic of photography has been around me since I was a child thanks to the family photos my uncle, who was a photographer, loved to take.

One of my most vivid childhood memories is about the long snowy winters, which made me feel as I was living in an icy magical fairy tale. Even now I still think that winter is magic. Years later I started skiing and hiking in the mountains. Quite naturally landscape photography became my true passion.

I made my first more conscious attempts at photography in 2004. I started as an amateur, there were ebbs and flows, and I was learning on the run. My serious creative strivings and endeavours started in 2014 and continue to this day.

Due to my inclination for engineering and in the same time for art, in my teenage years I started drawing because I wanted to become an architect. Eventually I became a mechanical engineer.

I often observe people, surroundings - I notice small details. I tend to contemplate and to look inward, I am an introspective person. In my photography I like the minimalist monochrome look, paying attention to details and focusing on one smaller part of the landscape.

As a photographer I won a number of prizes in competitions in my country and abroad, I also have publications in magazines and I received many invitations to participate in local exhibitions and related events.

Yours sincerely,
