The best moment of your life so far: I guess my best moment is still about to come…but, one was spending Christmas time in New York in 2008!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given:Just do what you love and believe in it. Sometimes I forget it.
A pro tip for taking nice photos: Don’t be shy, try to be the closest you can to the subject and shoot. I like to observe people, their eyes, their movements, sometimes there’s a great capture waiting for you. Let people be natural
How do you find your models:by now mostly friends or family. People who attract me in the street, beautiful or ugly, it doesn’t matter. I love their souls, not their faces.
