“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”

Each photograph has a story behind it. It carries a message, a strong message about the object illustrated, the photographer’s emotions, or sometimes both. I am a strong believer that pictures are a powerful tool, which in difficult circumstances can be used to explain things, no words can. Just like music, photographs talk louder than words.
“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”

In spite of the fact its simple for us to talk about our feelings and experiences, occasionally I find it easier and more enjoyable to express my opinions and visions in a graphic form. There are a number of fundamental reasons that helped me decide photography was something I wanted to concentrate on, beyond the fact, it could be the source of income, but also the source of mental satisfaction, piece of mind, freedom of expressing myself and feeling of relaxation. Pictures help me pass my message across, express my emotions, illustrate my views and most importantly, communicate with the viewer.
