I wasn't one of those people who was given a camera at young age and fell in love with photography.
No, one of my biggest passions was (and still is) traveling around the world and experiencing different cultures.
And it was while doing this that I developed an interest in photography.
In the beginning the emphasis was on capturing memories, but since a couple of years photography has become an important aspect of my travels.
Since then I also try to incorporate a more artistic element into it.
After receiving positive feedback from friends and fellow amateur photographers and after winning some prizes and contests I thought the time was right to expose my portfolio on the web.
I hope you like it.
