Wedding Photographer

Andraz Gregoric

A good wedding photographer works thoughtfully, he is good at the selection of the photos taken on the certain subject, his photos have narrative power and each picture offers something different and fresh.

The idea for the photo is born in the head. But the photo take away the breath when the composition is strong, the right moment is caught, depth of the field is unique, the efficient lighting is used. The professional wedding photographer knows what to watch, where to look for the motives and is specially trained and educated to do his job perfectly. His approach is unique and reveals a personal visual style, something that is very important for a photographer who wants to go one step further and to stand out.

I remember the time when I was a child, very interested in the world around me. One day I found something really interesting in my grandparents' cupboard. There was a box full of cameras, different qualities and ages. The most shiny was the one that attracted my attention most. It was Voiglander, the mirrorless camera. Like a real spy I started to take photos around me hiding myself behind wardrobes and beds. Over thirty years have passed since that time and the photography has become my way of life and expression.

When I finished Secondary School for Design and Photography in Ljubljana, I decided to continue studies of photography at The Higher Vocational College in Sežana. During my studies there I participated at the Festivals of Documentary Photography in Novo mesto several times and my mentors there were international well known photographers who taught me a lot. I graduated in 2011 and at the graduation I was awarded the title of ‘Photography Engineer’.

Since that time I work as a professional photographer. I have worked for musicians, magazines, The Museum and galleries Ljubljana, The Medical Chamber Of Slovenia, The Municipality of Domžale … My work was exhibited on my solo and group exhibitions and was awarded several times. I also participated as the expert jury in photo competitions and upgraded my knowledge of the lightning in the Lighting department working on the international projects (Nissan, LG, Dacia, Telekom, Dr. Oetker, etc.).
