Greetings lonely visitor,   

   In 2009 when I first got interested in photography, I was primarily after landscape & fall leaves shots. In next few years I got heavily drawn onto candid / street portraits and sports photography. 

   Lately though, I discovered world of digital photo art. The possibilities of digital photo art are enormous, but I am primarily interested in transforming photo, so it starts looking like a painting or somewhere in between a photograph and a painting. When it comes to subjects for photo art, I tend to focus on rural scenery, old mechanisms, landscape, and nature in general.

Additionally, very recently, I have started photo stories project aimed in  combining series of photos with a narrative to describe a hike, an event, or perhaps a life of a person or a business process in the future. You can get to the project by going to

   The public side of this website is aimed into showcasing my portfolio, which divided into 3 major categories – color, black and white, and photo art (turning photos into “paintings”) and many conceptual sub-categories. You are more than welcome to discover those via Portfolio section.   

   Currently, I live at Central PA, USA and always open to any ideas for photo projects or alike. The best way to get in touch with me is by email:      


                               Thank you for visiting and come again!
