Hi, I am Kusjka (/pronounced: kush-ka/) a lifelong West Coaster, now living in the Mother City.

I've been in infatuated with photography for as long as I can remember. Incited by the patter of tiny feet, this love has blossomed into my everyday passion; documenting lives seemingly ordinary moments in the most meaningful and extraordinary way - my way.

Much like a collector, photography to me has always been about obtaining those little life connections, others’ experiences and insights. I believe in connection and deep rooted relationships and nothing brings me more joy than experiencing exactly that.

‘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

Telling a good story is a beautiful combination of factual and well orchestrated moments, but most importantly,  it’s about always keeping it real. Add in my ambitious and creative approach, along with a consciousness to the smallest details and you get highest quality deliverables. The beauty of simplicity being the cornerstone of my photographic aesthetics.

Everyday 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 8 year old daughter, Lily, and our chubby cat named Aku, they make the occasional cameo over on the Insta story.
