4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
I grew up in an artistic family and art, music and photography have always been subjects of my interest. Since four years old I have been trying different things to satisfy the urge to learn and create. From art and fashion design to digital media, having photography in the background as a hobby. Soon there was this turning point of realization that photography is actually what satisfies me the most – a media through which I can better express the way I feel. Basically I quit all and focused mainly on photography..
