It is always more than a pleasure to photograph and work with some of the best athletes from around the globe. All athletes with whom I worked have their own distinct and unique personalities, and therefore all photoshootings always brings new challenges.
Nevena is a great friend of mine, so for that reason, this photoshoot was special and kind of relaxed. We knew from the very beginning what we wanted to achieve, so we followed that plan and came up with some photos that we imagined even before the actual photo shoot. Photographing skiing or similar sports in a studio environment is an absolute challenge, but I believe that we will soon see each other somewhere in the snow. Communication and proper approach will surely bring you the desired photos. If you worked with particular athlete before, or even better, if you are close friends, be sure to expect some great photographs that you will take home with you.
