Welcome to my website!

Long, long time ago, in the 1979, in a town called Kiel, northern Germany, only a few moments after birth, they gave me name Michael. Three years later, for reasons known only to him, my father packed his things along with his family, and returned to our lovely bay of Boka, leaving the state that allowed him to, as a young man, a foreigner, works and earns his bread. What was it that came across his mind- we are wondering since then.
How we lived..well, somehow we did. I guess it was ok during the eighties, I mean…it was ok for those who managed to find their way. In the meantime, I finished school and some kind of electro technical course, and in 1996 I broke my neck while jumping into the sea. More precisely, I simply hit the sand on the bottom, since it was too shallow… I used to jump from the same spot a million times before, but I guess once things go wrong. From that moment, a different life begins. Different way of living, different way of thinking, new habits…new interests.

A year after moving from the hospital to hospital, all kinds of operations and adjusting to those wheels of wheelchairs, a computer came into my life. It wasn’t a long time when I began to get interested in photography. Of course, there is never enough money so my first digital camera was some HP. C’mon, HP?! That camera was terrible, but it helped me in one thing: to initiate my love towards photography and to force me to move away from the computer monitor and escape from those walls. Little by little, one Canon, the second, and finally, switching to DSLR Nikon. Then, another Nikon, this lens, that lens… and all kind of other things. I’ve spent every coin that I’ve earned working for the Tourist organization of Tivat, and now I can say that I have reached a certain level of photography making, that I am mostly pleased with. Of course, there can always be added something, in terms of equipment, but there is still time, I am still quite young! 🙂

To sum up, photography is my hobby, my love, the brighter side of everyday life. Thanks to photography, I met beautiful people and saw beautiful places for which I could only dream to see.. Of course, great merits go to my family, for they all have the boundless understanding for my love towards photography. (they probably think it is much better that to find some beastly woman which drinks a bottle of vodka per day) 🙂
