Photographer & Phototherapist
"Ever since I can remember myself, I knew how to take photos. Not in the technical sense (it took the time to specialize in that), but in the emotional one.
I knew photography had to be more than just “taking beautiful photos”. It had to have a meaning, bigger than my own satisfaction.
After I started sharing my work with the world, I began to understand the undeniable power of photography. It became one of my main communication and self-expression methods, but it was only after I started shooting portraits when I discovered the healing power of photography.
This led me to learn the practice of phototherapy, which became my guiding voice throughout my work. Through my photography I aspire to focus on the good, and on the inconceivable beauty of the world, to which we have become a custom to and take for granted. I aspire to empower every person I have the privilege to photograph, and I wish my work will reach and move as many people as possible."
