Thank you for stopping by! My name is Vlad and I am a Wedding/Portrait Photographer currently based in Manchester, UK. You can read more about me and the things I love below.
I have a degree in Architecture from the University of Huddersfield, where I graduated from in the summer of 2015 with a First Class award. I started getting more serious about photography while I was in university. Slowly but surely I started realising that photography is what I truly want to do, so now I am working on transitioning from my full time job in Architecture to being a full time photographer (which is why at the moment I am only taking on a limited number of bookings every year).
Since I got into photography, I have experimented with a range of photographic themes, but felt most attracted to Wedding/Portrait Photography as well as Architectural Photography, with the latter coming as no surprise. In the summer of 2015 I worked as a resort photographer on a tiny Greek island and that is where I have developed my skills in areas such as Portraiture and Action Photography.
I cherish the privilege of being part of one of the happiest moments of your life and being allowed to capture a glimpse into your soul and that is no small thing for me so I don’t take it for granted.
I have a relaxed approach and want you to feel as comfortable as possible on your special day. I love working with natural light and I want to be as unobtrusive as possible, so most of the time I simply try to blend in, which results in capturing genuine, unaltered moments, which you and your guests can cherish for years to come. However, I believe posed portraits are important too so I like to include some of those throughout the day as well.
I love being surrounded by happy people and that shows in the work I produce. I don’t like to think I am only there for work, I also want to feel like a guest attending your wedding, because weddings are awesome, so don’t be surprised if you see me starting to dance away while taking photos at the party!
I play Table Tennis - I am fascinated by the dynamics of this sport. I currently play competitively in the Manchester Table Tennis League, for the East Manchester Table Tennis Club.
I play guitar and Ukulele.
Manchester is RED.
I am not much of a gamer, but when I do decide to play something it’s
I hate Coriander and genuinely believe it is the work of evil. I hate it most when I don’t know it’s hiding in my food and it just sneaks up on me, and that is most likely to happen with store-bought wraps, so I don’t buy those anymore
