A little bit about me
Who am I? Well that's a tough question I will not even attempt to answer. But what I can say about my self is that I am a photographer.
But what does that really mean?
As a child I never thought I'd grow up to absolutely love the camera. I never thought I'd be even capable of using one. I was all into music. Creating with my soul, putting together notes to chords to fit the dark lyrics of my youth.
As I grew up I slowly understood that my destiny is slightly other than to become a rock star. In fact, it was way different. I became an office man, coordinating this and that, meeting so many wonderful human beings from all over the world. But then I picked up the camera. It might have been a mistake, and some would call it destiny but that was indeed the moment I knew this is the experience of creation I want to embrace. That was when I have decided to buy my first DSLR, which I still have in my bag with me till this day, imagining, feeling and creating.
Now, in my early thirties I am set for a new adventure. The path of light and colors, imagination and passion, creating along with whomever is with me on the set.
But, It was never only the feel of the camera. It was all about the the personal connection for me. I understood I am capturing moment, sometimes very special ones.
What is Boudoir even about?
Let's start from the beginning.
I'm a people person. Photographing people is definitely a form of communication. Ever since I picked up the camera, I made the effort to take pictures of the most natural beauty.
Photographing real woman and men rather than focusing on 'models' for the job. I always did that because I felt it was way more empowring for the person in front of the camera and especially for me.
I was photographing so many men and woman and always got the same comments such as: 'I don't like me nose', 'I hate my hair' etc. etc.
Who doesn't question their beauty? Who doesn't have those moments looking at the mirror criticising their very own self? We all kind of have that thing we wish we can change.
But suddenly the: "Hey! Wow! Is that even me?" comments came and I understood these comments were always the real incentive and the real excitment for me.
For me Boudoir is not just a field of photography, it is an experince of self love, acceptance and body positivity. Some might even relate to it as a form of therapy.
Learn to accept your very special and very own beauty. Understand that actually, the nose you were just criticising, happens to be part of your special smile lighting up the room as you enter.
Self loving is just something one needs to learn for him or her self. It is a process we might be undergoing for our entire life! But I guarentee, you will feel totally different after a Boudoir photo session.
Boudoir might be exactly what you may need, and I would be honored to walk with you in this journey.
