Working with gowns design by one of my favourite designers is definitely poses a specific challenge: Zac Posen’s designs transformed the aesthetic of the fashion industry, and I knew, that doing justice to the iconic designer, I had to create something simple, sophisticated, but still punchy and potent as a dry martini. Geometry of the body, history of art, dramatic backdrop layering, geometric juxtapositions, all became elements of experimentation.
As a boy – not much older than my own daughter now – I spent some beautiful days with my mother teaching me about artists like Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe and Lyonel Feininger.
Anchored in this classical education, this photoshoot became a sort of tribute to my favourite painters and photographers that make up my visual dictionary. Inspired by modernism, modern dance, film noir, and of course my constant companion in everything I do – music, I decided to give myself unprecedented permission to explore that narrow corridor between fashion and wedding photography.

travel the globe photographing life’s important events, weddings, and editorial shoots.
The AKG studio was created out of my fascination for blending modern techniques with the art d'excellence from a bygone era, creating a photography of timeless aesthetic and heritage.
My photography is calm, intimate, quiet, and infused with meaning and purpose. It stems from my deep desire to advocate for empathy, empowerment, and kindness.
