At the beginning of March there is still deep winter in the Ukraine and the snow is meter high. Endless white plains and snowy forests stretch along the road through the exclusion zone. The landscape is so breathtakingly beautiful that it is hard to believe that you are surrounded by an invisible danger. But in spite of the silence, which is not disturbed by any human sound, street noise or industry; despite the apparent harmony of landscape and nature: the contamination remains - for millennia!

What happened? You have the best camera made and yet none of the... continue reading
As a photographer I tend to find that my creative side seems to go up and down, some days I'm full of ideas and other days everything seems to be overdone and there's nothing new and exciting to shoot.

Many times this "setup" stands between our idea and its execution.I will share my experience. As I mentioned in... continue reading
