Personal Quote:

You frame the shot and then you wait for days for something to happen! Instead of saying 'action' I wait for something to happen. But I know that sooner or later it will. Most of the time is waiting, and most of the time is also missing things. But when I'm able to capture something good it becomes dense and fundamental. [2020] See more »
