It's all about passion. If you don't have it you don't have much. I need to be around people who are driven by it, around people that love their life. Having that, I am the happiest person… when I have the chance to photograph passion I'm the happiest photographer. I'm comfortable even when the lights go down when people show who they really are—and I do the same! I've been carrying a camera with me everywhere I go since I was 11 years old, when I was 15 I started to publish in a monthly magazine and when I was 22 I started traveling around the world as the personal photographer to the President of the Republic of Slovenia

Taking photographs is the air I need to breathe to be able to wake up every morning.

The camera is my ticket to life..
