Ljubljana, Slovénie PRO
—First and foremost – whom can you name as the best photographer in Ljubljana, Slovénie? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Comment avez-vous commencé à travailler dans la photographie ?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Selon vous, quels sont les éléments les plus importants d'une bonne photo ?
—The strong content.
—Quel aspect de votre profession préférez-vous ?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Y a-t-il des modes dans la photographie ?
—There are, but I don't believe in them. I don't like trends. They come and go. For me, photography should be timeless. So I practice nice colors and black & white photographs with strong content.
—Quels devraient être les critères pour qu'un client choisisse un photographe ?
—I always say to my clients – think about what will your kids see in your wedding album, when they will get married after 20/30 years.
—Quels détails seul un photographe peut-il remarquer ?
—A good photographer can capture beautiful photos of the couple but also the hidden/small moments that no one sees. A good photographer can capture the 'making of' at the same level as the 'must be' photos.
—Qui aimeriez-vous prendre en photo ?
—I've photographed Hollywood movie stars, super-rich people, politicks,... but also very normal couples. For me is the same. It's not about what the people are or do, the wedding is about the love between two souls.
—Quel a été le moment le plus impressionnant de votre vie ?
—In personal life – definitely my kids birth. In professional career – winning the Photographer of the year 2015 title by Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). Another huge moment was speaking in front of almost 2000 people at the Wedding Brasil conference in Sao Paulo.
—Qui vous inspire dans votre vie et pourquoi ?
—My wife and my kids. They are my biggest inspiration. My son is a very talented football player. Daughter is a national champion in saxophone. And my wife – I'd never be where I am without her!
—Que faites-vous pendant votre temps libre ?
—I love trail running. So I try to spend as much time in nature and mountains as possible. Now and then I also make something from wood.
