Few Words Said About Me

"Whether they are about subjects as simple as a flower or an insect, or as immense as a city skyline or an arctic ice shelf, Stefan’s photos have something in"

"…They say to look for a unique perspective. We all shot the ice, but your shot of the boat Anne is unique. It captured the feel of the place…"

Some words about me:

My passion for the photography started over 30 years ago, when I  was 8-9 years old. I remember my summer vacations, spending day after day in the photo lab where my father’s cousin worked at that time. In the dark room, I was impressed by the “magic” bringing the images alive on the white paper.

I remember the thrill of buying my first camera (Lomo Smena Symbol), then the first flash, the first color film...

Many things have changed since that time – color films made everything to look “alive”, film cameras were replaced by digital, new lenses, new sensors, and more, and more…

The only thing that never changed is my love in photography – the magic of colors and light, the moments you capture and preserve for the future generations. I want to share with you the energy, uniqueness and magical beauty of some of these moments – the way I saw them with my eyes.

I believe in the maxim, which says that a good picture is like a good joke – if you have to explain it – then it’s not that good.

So, go forward, enjoy the journey!

Hope you’ll remember it!
