Photography

The love for Photography started as a passion for Landscape photography from the National Geographic magazines. In that earlier stages I had a Zenit film camera which my mother won in competition for best journalistic story in the early 80’s (yes, she was a  journalist ), I broke it after a short period of time with no guilt because most of the photos were blurry, overexposed, camera was to heavy to handle and operate with it.
Next one was automatic Canon camera. That was much more easier to handle, but there was one problem: In 1998 there was no official Canon service in Yugoslavia. The closest one was in the Budapest. The problem with camera was that “plastic thing” that holds together  camera doors and body was broken. Canon started much earlier with a lousy mass production and I am a witness for a life time.
After the disappointment of not beginning with the photography school I become Offset press operator.  Yes, that profession is to press PRINT. You are learning that operation for 4 years in the High school and a 3 years in the university. After the university which I proudly say I really “studied it”  ( 9 years)  I had some experience in photography but much more in printing and drinking beer.

Belgium

Since 2009 we moved out from Serbia/Montenegro in the best Beer country in the world ” BELGIUM”, that was a new starting point for my photography life. I started with studies in Royal academy for Fine arts in Antwerpen. I followed for 3 years, met some interesting people. Exhibitions were at least twice per year. In these several years I didn’t finished  the Academy because it was too hard get everything under control… But my wife finished here PhD thesis….etc
