I will admit right in the beginning, I was reluctant to join Instagram. I admit - I didn’t get it. I didn’t want another social network in my list of social networks where I have to (it’s good to) be active. I wasn’t interested in people’s over filtered phone images of F&F (food & feet) - because that is what I thought back then that Instagram is. But now, Instagram is rapidly becoming my favourite social network!
Zimska plesna šola / Winter dance school, Maribor (Slovenia), 20/02 > 23/02/2015
Last weekend, I've been very privileged to photograph amazing young dancers from whole Slovenia (plus some foreign guests) with their amazing mentors, during the 30th Winter dance school (30. Zimska plesna šola). Such passion and talent in one place - simply, for a lack of better word, amazing!
Orpheum, Graz (Austria), 25/02/2015
A bit more than 4 years after my first gig of a French multi instrumentalist and a composer Yann Tiersen, I had the opportunity to photograph him again. He is currently on a Europe tour, promoting his latest album called ∞ (Infinity) and while I, due to other work commitments, missed his sold out Ljubljana gig last Saturday, I did manage to catch him in Graz, Austria.

Rambo Amadeus & Two Winettous & One More
Antonije Pušić, Belgrade-based Montenegrin singer-songwriter that is far better know by his artistic name Rambo Amadeus, is a real phenomenon in the region of ex Yugoslavia...
Kino Šiška, Ljubljana (Slovenia), 19/02/2015
Another great performance from the "Devil’s Violinist" Lajkó Félix!
Kino Šiška, Ljubljana (Slovenia), 03/12/2010
My first concert of a legendary French multi instrumentalist, composer and the author of some fabulous movie soundtracks (e.g. "Good Bye Lenin!" and "Amélie") was great as expected!
Vetrinjski dvor, Kulturni Klub Dvorec, Maribor (Slovenia), 31/01/2015
Afir Bafir is a legendary drumming collective from Maribor formed some 18 years ago by even more legendary Nino Mureškič playing West African rhythms and their own songs. And playing it fast & loud!
Pekarna, Dvorana Gustaf, Maribor (Slovenia), 07/02/2015
Second gig of the night for me, big night for me and my wife (she's a violinist in the band) and probably best live performance from the band so far!
Narodni dom Maribor, Mali oder, Maribor (Slovenia), 07/02/2015
First concert of the "Jazz v Narodnem domu" (Jazz in Narodni dom) series in 2015, brought us a very interesting Austrian electro / post-rock trio Radian!
You’ve might heard about it already, but there is (yet) another social network in the town called Ello (still in Beta). Will it be the next big thing, it remains to be seen, but I will admit I do love the simplicity and minimalism of the website!
Jazz klub Satchmo, Maribor (Slovenia), 06/02/2015
After a bit more than 3 years, I had the opportunity to shoot another great concert of Slovenian pust-punk trio Nina Bulatovix and it was awesome, as expected!
Dvorana Union, Maribor (Slovenia), 31/01/2015
Plesna izba Maribor's annual winter dance show production
Continuing our great collaboration with Maribor’s well know dance school & dance company Plesna Izba Maribor, I documented another annual winter show production of the most of their different classes - from small kids to jazz and modern/contemporary dancers!
New addition to my ongoing photo projects
Latest in the series of my ongoing photography projects to be published online is also the first one that is not strictly music related, although most of the images were taken during the music performances, but musicians are not the main subjects here. After "Lost in Music", "Don’t forget the drummer" and "(Un)known faces", my latest project titled "Focused on LCD screen" focuses (no pun intended!) on the fact that we all are documenting everything around us at almost every time. Me included!
