My story begins with my father’s old Zenith camera, which was kept on top of the bookshelf. Whenever I was left alone at home I kept playing. I remember my father always with his camera on his hand. It was so sad we had to leave most of our photographs and the camera along with our many other belongings behind us while immigrating from Bulgaria. But that never stopped him taking photos until he passed away at the young age of 34.

Photography has been in my life for a very long time. I began my career in photography 11 years ago and continue to work with both digital and film. Four years ago I took a radical decision and started studying Art of Photography at Dokuz Eylul University, leaving a 4 year old little boy, husband, and a cat waiting at home.

I believe that it’s never too late to make a difference and start something new in your life, and making your dreams come true.
