I've started my sports photography career by accident, while carrying newly bought DSLR camera on a handball match in 2013. At that moment I didn't have an idea that I'll became professional, but something brings me back to the handball matches. Than I feel the need to invest in gear and everything went to a larger-scale.
In January 2015 I've started shooting matches for handball specialized website 24Rakomet.mk. That was my "inauguration" to the professional sports photography. Covering EHF Champions League home matches of WHC/HC Vardar and Metalurg, as well as SEHA F4 in Veszprem, EHF Beach Handball Championship in Spain and macedonian superleague matches.
In the summer of 2015, I received a call from the Macedonian Handball Federation to work as an official photographer of the W17 EHF EURO held in Macedonia, contributing with photos to the official website of the championship as well as the European Handball Federation website. That was a huge experience for me and a step forward in my career.
Shortly thereafter an open invitation to became a Gol.mk staff photographer was received. At that time this sports news website was under construction and the process of staffing was going on. I was told that I'll be the only one responsible for the photo sector, covering all sports. Taking and editing photos from various sports events was the missing puzzle that I needed. I accepted the job with full responsibility and I'm still here.
Gol.mk was published in January 2016. Number one sports news website in Macedonia requires a photographer who can respond to the needs, sometimes covering several sports events in one day. Common tasks for me as Gol.mk photographer are covering national leagues and cups matches in all sports in Macedonia as well as home matches from the European and regional leagues that Macedonian teams are playing, national teams qualifications for European and World Championships etc.
Also, I'm covering championships and tournaments that Macedonian teams are playing abroad and home. Major events covered so far are:
