“I am following the idea of the moment and spontaneity.”
– When it comes to photography, what grabs your interest? What do you try to capture in your images?
“I am rather following the idea of the moment and spontaneity. For me the best thing is to put myself in the dynamic and unknown environment and make a tommygun out of my camera. Just going for whatever is catching my eye instantly, normally not even checking what comes out right away.”
– How would you describe your style of photography? What else do you photograph outside BMX?
“I am always eager to tell the story with pictures so I am more friendly with photo series rather than one-shot. I think I am really bad at arranging the photograph. I am willing to transmit what is happening in the current moment, and if I feel I have accomplished it – then it’s a success. Just being there, living that particular moment and document everything is happening. Be it BMX or anything else. I do enjoy travel photography and also had some experience in shooting people.”
– What’s your current setup, what camera gear could we normally find in your bag?
“As you can see, nothing really advanced there. I use my faithful 7D in a combination with a Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art series lens. I always struggle to get a wider angle but so far only 18-55 can assist me with that. One day I will get something more solid. I definitely enjoy the feeling of film photography, therefore I have Canon 300 analog camera and some Olympus miracle always being in my pocket. Kodak Portra film for life.”
– Finally, any shout outs?
“Shouts to all the savages in Ukraine and around the globe who preserve the good vibes around BMX. Shouts to my mom who would not understand shit from this interview but still be proud for me. And finally shouts to Robin for riding down the same street with me one day and making it possible to appear on Ride UK. Peace :)”
