My Story

I’m a photographer enthusiast and i have been photographing from at least 2002.
I started with borrowing my dad’s old Minolta camera with 35mm film, but shortly after switched to my own digital camera.
My very first camera was a digital compact camera, and later on as I got more into photography I switched to my first DSLR from Nikon in 2006.

I don’t focus on specific type of photography. It could be nature, portraits, event’s and other things I have the opportunity to photograph.

The name idea (Shutter Slave) comes from 2 places. The first part shutter is a part of the camera that allows light to pass for a determined period. The second part comes from how some music artists some times says they are a “slave to the music”, but in this case as a photographer it could be a “slave to the shutter”.
