About me

Visual arts have always been a huge part of my life. I started photography as an experiment of understanding life during childhood. Both of my parents are involved in photography for certain periods of their lives, which gave me the opportunity to explore the analogue techniques and black and white photography. I got my first camera when I was 12 and try to capture life around me. This led me to study on Journalism; I had my bachelor's degree graduating with a photography project in 2002. After that, I had my MFA on Visual Communication Design. Since 2007, I'm working with worldwide advertisement clients, agencies and magazines.
