Seeing the world in a different way by each new project, is what makes me love my profession. I am working as a cinematographer for film and commercial ever since i graduated from Berlin film academy, the dffb. In 2016 i dedicated most of my time working on my sixth feature film, an ambitious, multiple camera project, directed by Ilian Metev, which won the Golden Leopard Cineasti del Presente on last Film Festival in Locarno. My third feature film, THE ISLAND, directed by Kamen Kalev,  was awarded  in 2011 with the Bulgarian Film Academy Award for Best Cinematography. I love working with multiple cameras and can handle Ronin rigs quiet well.
I´v been around, working in Germany, Bulgaria, France, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Swiss, Sweden, Belgium, England, Romania, Poland, Croatia…. I am nativ of Bulgaria, spending most of the time with my family in Berlin……
