How do you describe your work?
That of a photographer in love with male beauty, without labels. I do not like to classify my work as erotic or porno, never really did it — only moments of beautiful men in various situations, sometimes sensual.
What makes a good photograph to you?
You have to love what you do, try to be objective and determined, like everything that can be part of what you want to show, be updated, be honest. With digital photography, people who never thought to be photographers want to be photographers. I wonder how to be a good photographer in the middle it all.
Who are your favorite artists? And why?
I spent my life seeing the work of Herb Ritts and Bruce Weber — I think they influence me a lot. I like the simplicity, naturalness, only men in various everyday situations, without labels — only the grandeur of male beauty.
