I was born in Slovenia and feel very fortunate to be able to call this beautiful country my home. My deep appreciation for nature and my passion for photography started to develop at a young age. Now, some thirty-five years later, I remain as curious as ever. My desire to explore the world’s beautiful places and to capture the profound experiences they evoke has taken me on photographic expeditions all over the globe. Some of the places I have trained my lens on include the remote mountain wilderness of Patagonia, the desert coastlines of Saudi Arabia and Oman, the cloud forests of Sri Lanka, the Fjords of Norway, the Dolomites of Italy and the mesas and canyons of the American West. For me, a good photograph can take me back to those vast places and arouse the very same feelings and emotions I experienced in them. A good photograph can bring back the sights, the sounds, the smells and the feeling of actually being there. Apart from photography, my creative outlets also include music and design, and since the year 2000, I have been the owner of a design studio based in the capital city of Ljubljana.
When I’m not out exploring Slovenia’s mountains and forests, camera in hand, you’ll find me in my studio, applying my design and post processing skills in order to best bring my experiences of nature to life in my photographs. The result of these efforts has been two exhibitions of my work in Slovenia. A number of my photographs have also been published in professional photography magazines around the world and have been recognized in international awards. In 2019, three of my photographs were selected as part of the Epson International Pano Awards to be among the 30 best landscape photographs of that year. More recently, I have become interested in sharing my knowledge and experience with others through photography workshops. The first of these workshops will take place in my beloved homeland of Slovenia, and I look forward to also sharing my local knowledge of Slovenia and showing participants secret places that few people have ever seen. See you on the sunny side of the Alps!
