What is Photography for us? Photography is the craft of catching the internal and external excellence of life at a particular minute in time. Photography, characterizing it in single word or a paragraph isn’t sufficient. Not books composed on it can characterize it totally. To begin with, I would say that taking a Photo, it is also an art form. Painting with light to be exact. It’s the best way to solidify a memory in passing time. I would probably say that I love photography as it seems like we are in control of time. It gives us power to shoot at this spot, freeze the time and call it a memory.

Shameless plug for your business:
I choose this career since when I was young because it is always motivating as I always meet new people and capture new stories. My style is quite realism so I don’t make lots of retouch and I want to conserve the natural beauty of my model.
