Although born in Macedonia, a small country in the Balkans, I always considered myself to be a man of big dreams. Thus, since a very young age, I wanted to become someone who would leave a mark in the world, and later on I discovered that photography is my means to doing just that. My journey began by taking pictures of everyday moments and small happenings in my life, as a way to share my perspective and help others connect with me and my surroundings. By approaching each picture with attention and love, I tried to best grasp the beauty of the thing around me as well as of the nature, known for its simplicity and yet cryptic complexity, through colorful and energetic imagery. Moreover, as I traveled around the world, I brought a piece of each country back home through my photography. From mosques, to kayaks, tall building and parks be it in Turkey, Dubai, or Italy– I did not want to lose a moment. More recently, through the careful use of composition, vision of light, and the eye for detail, I constantly attempt to generate extraordinary images out of ordinary objects. Using technical aspects of photography, I try to evoke emotions for the viewer even from the simplest products or buildings. Hence, my last projects involved photographing some of the most famous hotels and apartments in the region, and those pictures are now used in Airbnb.com, Booking, and TripAdvisor among others. As an extension to my passion for photography, I am also engaged in shooting videos, as a way to best portray the distinct composition and the real-feel of objects and settings. I always felt it was a tremendous honor to document beautiful scenery and significant moments, but it is even a greater pleasure to share them with people like YOU. Enjoy!

Tutorial for Daytime Long exposure

Published February 1st, 2012

This dramatic shots at late sunset, after the sun has already fallen behind the mountains was achieved like this

First of all a definition of ND filter:

"In photography and optics, a neutral density filter or ND filter can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter. An ideal neutral density filter reduces and/or modifies intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition.

The purpose of standard photographic neutral density filters is to allow the photographer greater flexibility to change the aperture, exposure time and/or motion blur of subject in different situations and atmospheric conditions."

I used an ND filter of 10stops, which enabled me to achieve this long shutter speed at daytime, i used an B+W 110 filter. But, firstly i prefocused the shot, created the desired composition, because after the filter is mounted on the lens it makes it that dark and actually nothing is visible!

My focus point was somewhere right in the middle o ...
