About me

Action could be the most adequate word to describe my artistic temperament, my work and the authenticity of captured moment which is based on photographic ethics and reliability. With this challenge in mind, I tend to maintain the same action-driven approach while photographing Our Lady of Medjugorje (Blessed Virgin Mary statue) on the hot, rocky slopes in Herzegovina or powerful heavy metal/hard rock bend leaving the last molecules of its strength on stage; and also weddings, where speed, spontaneity of the moment and creativity are of utmost importance or demonstrations where there are no set rules besides capturing a good photo and trying to avoid dangerous objects flying over the heads of photojournalists, policemen and demonstrators.

I collaborate with portals like Hercegovina.info, kroativ.at, therocktologist.com, perun.hr, venia-mag.net, nocturnemagazine.net and skforum.at. I'm also a member of Croatian Press Photographers Association.

I live in Vienna with my wife Sonja and our two beautiful children.
