Behind the lens

Hi, my name is Anna. I am from Bulgaria. I’ve been living in Dubai with my family for the last 6 years. I am a mother of two beautiful girls, I’ve been married for 14 years for the most wonderful man, my big love.

I like to travel the world with my family, capturing unique and interesting faces. Photography is my big passion.

I started out in front of the camera.

As a model I enjoyed many years the world of fashion, experienced every part of it and learned different aspects and details of being into this business.

It happened spontaneously to turn my hand to photography. I’ve been always keeping inside my love to photography, but probably it was meant to happen at the right time. My two daughters gave me a great inspiration and motivation to follow my passion and to decide to switch sides. I got my photography education in Bulgaria, after that I attended to different master classes in Dubai and workshops at Annual “Gulf photo plus week” that is the longest running international photography event in the Gulf region and started practicing.

At that time I met Nadiya Onoda – a well known Ukrainian photographer with huge experience who also lives in Dubai. She opened my eyes for every detail and aspect of being a photographer in this country .I found her as a great professional who had a big impact on my work. And she is still my greatest influencer. She became a very close friend of mine and my soul mate.

Every photoshoot is the next biggest experience and excitement for me, making my days happier and full of emotions and  joy, meeting different people, sharing their stories and emotions and capturing all this in lifetime memories.
