Kusjka (/pronounced: kush-ka/)


Photography to me has always been about obtaining those real-life connections, others’ encounters and insights because they are most extraordinary to me. I hold an incredible passion for life, love, and documenting the emotional moments that add meaning to our lives.

"The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." - Christopher McCandless

My approach to photography is a good ratio between documentary and well orchestrated moments, but most importantly it’s relationship-oriented; I love to get to know my clients long before putting them in front of the lens. My goal is to create a special vision together with my clients and commemorate the bonds, emotions, and moments that can’t be re-lived or replaced.

Every day should be celebrated, from an ordinary hour to a once in a lifetime event. By capturing these moments that would eventually be forgotten, my work is a telling tale of future nostalgia. Remember that day - your day!

I live with my darling 7 year old daughter, Lily, and our somewhat chubby cat named Aku, they make the occasional cameo over on the Insta story.
