It's all about passion. If you don't have it you don't have much. I need to be around people who are driven by it, around people that love their life. Having that, I am the happiest person… when I have the chance to photograph passion I'm the happiest photographer. I'm comfortable even when the lights go down when people show who they really are—and I do the same!
I've been carrying a camera with me everywhere I go since I was 11 years old, when I was 15 I started to publish in a monthly magazine and when I was 22 I was traveling around the world as the personal photographer to the President of the Republic of Slovenia
But I'm not only a photographer by profession, although my education says I am. Taking photographs is the air I need to breathe to be able to wake up every morning.
The camera is my ticket to life..
If you have any great ideas, are not shy and like my work.. Let me know and lets create something nice together.
