My motivation for taking pictures started many years ago while I was in elementary school. One day my father brought a new camera, a “Regula L”. It was a family camera, but from the first day I liked to consider myself the primary owner. I still have this camera, and it is in very good working condition.
Soon after, in the early 60’s, I joined a school photo club and created my first black and white photo in a photo laboratory. My photo journey continued throughout high school, university, and still continues today.
I have been a member of Photo Club Vancouver since 2009.
I prefer to photograph landscapes, street photography and people.
My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel, and experience. Presently, there are many photographers who are magnificent, but the artists I most admire are Gregory Crewdson, Andrzej Dragan, and Ljubodrag Andric. They continue to inspire me in my views on photography.
