I started my photography journey in 2005 when I bought my first Canon A400 point-and-shoot camera. In the beginning, I was doing photography as a hobby like everybody else and I was always fascinated by nature and clouds. I started photographing clouds from my own terrace. Later on while I was an university student, I had the opportunity to traveled to the USA twice, on work and travel programs as well as many other countries in Europe. And I was kind of like a Chinese photographer, taking stills of everything I see. :-)
Throughout the years, I pretty much tested all kinds of photography genres and figured it out that I like travel and landscapes photos a lot. The problem was that it was very hard to earn an income from that kind of photos. So I started doing portrait photography and fell in love. Pretty much seeing all kinds of interesting people and photographing them. Then I come across shooting pretty girls that look like models and I've got super excited. It was so much fun and pretty much meeting and photographing beautiful girls was my dream job. So I figured it out that I wanted to do fashion and commercial photography, and I am doing that since 2013. I started studying fashion and it was not easy at first, but at the same time exciting. As you know, it is a very competitive industry, but I love it! I love fashion models, creative people, interesting concepts, studio work, on location work, awesome fashion clothing and you name it! Some of my favorite fashion designers are Valentino, Prada, Dior, Missoni, Louis Vuitton, Guess, Marni, Versace and the list could go on. It will be a very big dream come through and a big privilege, if I have an opportunity to shoot someday for them! I also love all of the top fashion magazines such as Vogue Italia, Vogue España, Vogue Paris, British Vogue, and all the other Vogues, I also love pretty much all the Harper's Bazaar, Elle, W Magazine, V Magazine, Numéro Magazine, Amica and all of the other inspiring fashion magazines! It will be amazing to collaborate and work with them in creating a fashion story that could be inspiraring, special, and valueble for other people! Taking videos is a super cool thing to do as well and my plans are to create short fashion films and video ads in the future. It is super interesting and I am super pumped.
My biggest dream and goal now is to create work that will inspire thousands (if not millions) of people around the world, even long after I am gone from this world. And I really Really REALLY hope that I will be able to create provocative, thoughtful and interesting fashion stories, and fashion films as well as have the opportunity to work with the best models, best creatives, best fashion magazines, best fashion brands and clients. For that reason, please feel free to reach out and hopefully we can create magic together.
With much love and great respect,
Plamen
