Photography has always been one of my passions. I collect, repair, and sometimes build film cameras.

I started taking photos when I was 8, with the Olympus Pen EES-2 that my mother brought back from a journey in Japan.

I shoot both digital and films. When I use films, my favorite formats are:
35mm, 120 (both in 6×6 and in 6×4.5 formats), 4×5, Instant (Instax Mini, Wide, SquarePolaroid 600, SX70).

Some of the cameras I like most to shoot with are:

  • Agfa Isolette II
  • Belomo Agat 18K
  • KMZ Moskva 5
  • Lubitel 166 Universal
  • Nikon FM, Nikon FA, Nikon FG 20, Nikon F601, Nikon F70, Nikon F801, Nikon F90X
  • Minolta SR-T 101, Minolta XD-7, Minolta X-700, Minolta Dynax 7
  • Olympus Pen, Olympus Om-1
  • Praktica BX20, Praktica B100, Praktica B200, Praktica BCA
  • Rollei 35, Rollei B35, Rolleicord, Rolleiflex
  • Yashica FX3
  • Super Ikonta B 532/16
  • Zenit E, Zenit EM, Zenit 11, Zenit 12, Zenit TTL
  • Zenza Bronica SQ-B

I develop and print most of my own films, at home.
