It was kind of inevitable because I grew up in a family of artists. My father is a musician and a painter; my mother’s a painter as well. At the age of 14 my brother gave me a camera and I started shooting. Then I had a small digital camera, which I carried with me at all times to annoyingly shoot everybody in awkward situations. Then I realized that I liked to memorize things through photographs. In the beginning, my photos did not have any artistic value, but then I switched to film photography and they filled up with textures and colors. I started learning more about photography, I had great mentors throughout my career, but I never went to an art school. Generally, I am against art schools and paying a bunch of money for them.
I have been taking pictures for almost 10 years now, and I have tried many kinds of photography. When I am broke I sometimes do commercial stuff that I don’t like, but in some ways, it gives me valuable experience and technical knowledge. I don’t use Photoshop, so everything I do is through my camera.
