- Your images about people laying on the ground who are acting to different stuff are become very famous, how is this idea born?
I wanted a kid to ride on a dog for a picture. We tried so many different ways but essentially came to teh idea, that putting the dog with the cild on the street and shoot from above was the most successful idea!

- What is a good shot for you?
A picture that makes me think, wonder and happy!

- What camera do you use?
For every project another one. I have a set of 4-5 which I use regularly but also some others.

- What is your next project about?
Learning tricks like: becoming invisible and saving the world! Easy! :-)
