I am Mark and I shoot people

If you would like to know more about the guy behind the lens
down is the way to go

Aside from shooting people, my biggest hobby is petting big leaves and looking smart while holding the camera

No, I am not wearing glasses, and yes, pretending you don’t know you’re being photographed can make a nice Facebook profile photo… works like a charm

As you already know, my name is Mark. I am a 25 year old camera hauling parent disappointment, failed Law student and a successful portrait, fashion, and travel photographer / photo retoucher from Belgrade, Serbia.

  • If we were to believe my best friends.

My photography adventure started in 2012 with a small camera and a big dream, and to be honest, it wasn't quite the dream of choosing photography as a main career, as the financial prospect of photography didn't sound promising for a young guy who's about to enter the University.

Fast forward to 2018, and I am running my own photography business, traveling the world, and living a life full of experiences I've never dreamt of having. So what changed?

I've decided to give a chance to my wildest dreams, to abolish the idea of what I was getting ready to become, abandon the ordinary life in pursuit of adventure, make some hard decisions, and devote myself to this beautiful art. I gave everything to the camera, and it gave me all back.

If you want to know more about how I accomplished this, you can follow my journey on Instagram and Facebook, where I write daily about photography, retouching, developing a business and traveling.
