I cover all sorts of stories.
My earliest and most awful memory of photography is Albania’s 1997 civil war. It was a hard time. People were so afraid; they didn't leave their homes except to buy things at market. Many people died and the state didn’t help them. All these things made me feel so bad.
I learnt photography from one of the best photographers in Albania, who took care of me and helped me with all sorts of details. His name is Lulzim Lika.
My first assignment was covering a rally by the opposition socialist party in 1996. I was so emotional and I felt a lot of responsibility for my coverage; this was the first time that I understood even photography is a difficult job.
The assignment that left the biggest mark on me was covering Kosovar refugees who came to Albania in 1999. The pain that I saw in the eyes and faces of the refugees left a huge impression on me.
I try to make every detail of a photo perfect so that everyone can appreciate it.
My biggest lesson and my personal motto is that you can’t let the moment go; you have to grab it and shoot it.
