A few words about you. Explain me a little bit how did you start photography?

I started many years ago although it seems like it was yesterday. My parents gave my old Russian camera - smena. It was 1988 or 1989 - we went for holidays to Hungary. Later on, I became more serious about it but my roots are in so called "street photography". From 1995 to nowadays I love to travel, walk, watch and shoot :)

About your travel to San Francisco, can you explain me the context? Was it for a job or for holidays? How long was this trip?

I work also as a film director. I got an assignment to shoot a video for clothing company from Poland. We spent few days to check the locations, I shot video and then I had 2 days for walking. I guess I did 120 kilometers on foot.

What did you discover in San Francisco? Something surprising from where you live that you wanted to immortalize?

I went there before but it was in 1998. So I did not remember much. So I had to rediscover SF :) My fav place: Mission District and Castro District. And also hills above the center. It feels like you are in heaven ;)

Did you met a lot of new people? What is your best souvenir?

It was the time for myself and I had time to walk, think and chill so I did not talk or meet anyone. Best souvenir? I found great prism (big piece of glass) which I used to shoot some of the photos on that trip.

Do you have over Trips scheduled? Plans for the future? Where would you dream to go?

I have many dreams and places that I wish to go. Japan again for sure (Okinawa), Australia for road trip. Again California with my family. But tomorrow I fly to Croatia for one week for a short holidays. :)
