If you are a photogenic couple and you are interested in doing a photo shoot, romantic and lifestyle concepts, I look forward to hearing from you. I will be doing it free of charge and you will receive a few prints from each session. Any ages and ethnicities will be considered, however, your look is very important, so please send me a couple of your recent photographs, preferably where you are together. If you have a pretty location for the shoot, like a nicely decorated room, a small garden, a cottage, that would be even better. I will be able to reply only to those whose looks fit the requirements, and we can discuss the details on that stage.
The shoot was inspired by native beauty of different world cultures and ethnicities, by exotic features of the model and beautiful long hair. Thank you to the amazing team!

If you have property in Toronto, GTA or within 2 hrs from Toronto, that could be interesting as a photo shoot location, it could be a nicely decorated house, a cottage, a farm, a garden, or maybe you own a business, have an office, a workshop or a studio (not a commercial photo studio) that has a potential as a photo shoot location suitable for fashion, commercial, lifestyle or other concepts, and you would be interested in offering it for a photo shoot, I would appreciate if you could give me more details, its location and photos.
Please also let me know if you would be willing to offer it in exchange for photographs or prints for your personal use or for your business, or a reasonable hourly rate.

After two and a half years of waiting and worrying, I have received my immigration visa. It was night of December 2007, when after a 12-hour non-stop flight, I finally arrived to Toronto. What a beautiful night that was. A dream come true.
The next morning brought us a snow storm. I’ve never seen so much snow in my life. Warm welcome from Toronto 🙂 I wish we had as much every winter.
It was love from the first sight. The country, the nature, the people. I haven’t had a single disappointment since and never looked back. Yes, it wasn’t easy to start everything from scratch. Feeling like a first grade student, learning new language and culture, meeting new friends and exploring new places, I found this process very enjoyable.
