Welcome to my photography page. In 1992 I was infected with the diving virus. After a few years I wanted to share all the beautiful things I saw with others. I started taking pictures and soon making pictures became a true passion. In 2000 I started participating in photography competitions. By now I have won many prizes at home and abroad. My photographs are memories of fantastic and spectacular experiences, but also moments of patience and frustration. It has become a natural urge to surround myself in the most beautiful but sometimes the most inhospitable environment on earth. Looking for an enchanting world, a place where I can come to rest. One flash, one fraction of a second is all I need to capture my imagination in a feeling that can touch people.
