For many years, I have been traveling to some of the most acknowledged wineries in the world to take pictures for magazines and winemakers.
A long-term collaboration with Simple Wine News magazine resulted in the production of dozens of SWN covers from some of the world's most famous wineries →

In August 2018, I went to South Rhone valley in France to photograph some of the most renowned winemakers in the region: cover and feature.

I also help winemakers and other alcohol producers to create strong images, still and motion, to tell their stories.
Advertising campaign
In September 2017, together with my team, I created a series of promotional images for Jimsher, Georgia's first producer of local whisky.

My dream project is a book on a wine region or a country. A book of stories told about wine through people who love it, and who are connected with it. Beautiful portraits, fine art quality, and touching stories.

If you are a representative of a wine board or association, or a producer or an importer, and you are interested in such an art project, please, contact me via
