About me

I graduated in Journalism at the University of political science in Zagreb, the capital of my home country of Croatia. In 2013 I decided to pursue my dreams by moving to the United Kingdom where, in Richmond, I completed 2 years of BTEC course in Photography with a Distinction. While attending this course, I gained fundamental knowledge in various photography genres, experimented with different techniques and familiarised with important photographers’ work, which confirmed my desire to engage in Photography even more so. I have enjoyed writing from my early age and consider myself to be an audiovisual enthusiast with constant hunger for creative opportunities.
