I am a documentary photographer, former war correspondent and freelance lecturer. I am pursuing my MA degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the UAL/LCC [University of the Arts London/College of Communication] for 2017/’18 academic year.

My enthusiasm, punctuality, motivation and eager to enhance my journalistic, photography and teaching abilities innate my skills of interaction that have been honed and fine-tuned through my lifetime human and professional experience. 

The majority of my journalistic and photography work is published in print newspapers and magazines including Der Spiegel», Die Welt», The New York Times», TIME», Paris Match», VICE, Le Monde» etc. 

 

About Me

Since late 2007, I have demonstrated strong editorial ability and knowledge of news magazine, newspaper and wire service imagery, as well as accompanying commentary and journalism in respect of my work.

I covered also the Syrian civil war on various assignments for renowned European and American newsmagazines, wire services and newspapers.

As filmmaker I worked for AP London Bureau News Television as well as German Spiegel TV – recording the frontline battles between the Syrian government forces and armed insurgents in the northern Syrian restive city of Aleppo during 2012.

I am the founder of VXPictures, a team of documentary photographers and cinematographers, specialising in editorial, conceptual and landscape photography, as well as in broadcast news coverage and documentary filmmaking.

Additionally, I have taken photographs commissioned by ZUMA Press, IMAGO, EPA, AFP – featured also at Corbis & Getty Images as well as VICE Magazine. I am fluent in Albanian and English languages [written and spoken].

My pictures from Syria of a ‘face painted Syrian boy‘ and a Mother who mourn her baby-child, were chosen as ‘Best of the News’ by Getty Images.

I particularly enjoy witnessing, documenting and reporting stories that have previously been unreported and untold. I am available to carry out any form of assignment in pursuance of your story.

I am strictly committed to my code of ethics as well as fundamental principles. This is a strength that guarantees my reliability for the subject of the story, for my client and the intended audience.
