Wedding Party - Girl & The Shimmering Ultra Red Dress
Wedding Party - Girl & The Shimmering Ultra-Red Dress
October 14, 2014
Well, it would appear that a wedding photograph that I took back in 2008 has been borrowed and used in the Movie "Tower Heist" starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. It would have been nice to have been notified and perhaps compensated for such an honor. Alas, if you are interested in seeing the movie scene featuring my photograph please follow the link:

About Myself

My parents immigrated to the United States in 1967 from Bulgaria. At that time
Bulgaria was under the communist rule of the USSR - Russia. They had a
long and hard journey. Upon reaching Italy, they had made contact with a refugee
camp and were there for approximately 9 months before they were allowed to
come to the United States. I was born in the United States shortly after.

As for me, I am an outgoing athletic type person. I like to ride and race bicycles
as a hobby in addition to my photography. I also weight lift somewhat regularly
and I like to ski. I particularly love to bike in Bulgaria when I am there visiting
relatives as well as taking as many meaningful pictures as I can of the different
sights that there is to see. I really like landscape, wildlife and nature photography.
However, I want to expand toward photography with models; portrait, abstract, etc...
