Society, economics, entertainment
Since I was a little boy I have loved the magic of pictures appearing on a piece of white paper.
I started as a self-taught photographer, picking it up as I went along by working in different newspapers.
Then in 2002 I went to journalism school in the U.S. where I rapidly developed my skills.
My first assignment and my favorite picture are combined: my first image published by Reuters was of Kosovo refugees arriving by bus at Cegrane refugee camp in Macedonia.
I love every assignment where I can meet new people. The large diversity of events that I cover gives me the opportunity to look at history in the making from the very first raw take.
Nothing can be seen in such crystal sharpness in a picture as honest emotion.
Taking a patient approach with all your subjects makes your work harder but brings excellent results.
I have become what I am mostly through the influence of my senior colleges - photographers who set the bar high.
