Some Background

Photography:

As a kid I used to take photos with kodak analog camera and send the film to develop and print in a photo lab, then I had some digital point & shoot cameras leading to Dslr in 2011. I learn every day from every snap I take. Thanks to all great photographers I met in recent years, I realised the fun and pleasure in shoot with films (analog) since Q4 2013 I started taking analog photographs parallel to digital. Now I am learning to develop my films and print them myself.

135 and 120 films from several manufactures ; chemicals to develop and process them based on the requirement.

Perfumes:

I used to apply perfume since teenage, nothing special but always had an interest on them. Ever since I moved to Sweden in 2008 my interest on perfumes grew more. I started to try different perfumes and know about them in much deeper level. It was the movie ” Perfume : The story of the Murderer ” took my interest to another level, in learning to make perfumes by understanding olfactory, notes and concentrations. I started to make my own perfumes with combination of several perfumes or from essential oils.
