My Dream of Ballet photography basically starts here, with this gallery,
giving wings to my Dream as it spread out to the world far and wide
as people shared their appreciations and praise for it from almost every corner of the world.
My heart does not want to boast about it. I want to leave it to my Art itself
to Speak and touch lives with beauty which today so often is flashed away with
more and more bad news from all media surrounding us.

I am not business oriented (minded) person and i even don't want to call myself a photographer
as there is always some professionals that look down on photo hobbyists counting them
as amateurs. I never liked this word "amateur"
which dictionary describes in these words: "someone who is unqualified or not skilful enough".
I don't really know what they teach in photo schools but I want to take pictures
with my heart and not to compete with other photographers in cleverness
which I often sense in seemingly perfect photos, which in many ways also depend
on perfect equipment they use. My photo equipment is very modest, having only
one good lens (50 mm - 1.4) which is used in most of my arty photos.

At this point my dream of Ballet photography brought me more friendships
with some ballet dancers and with great excitement and expectations I am looking forward
to spring and summer to fulfill some of my ballet photography ideas with them.
