Hello! My name is Jasenka and I’m a photographer from Belgrade, Serbia.
Even though I graduated from the Department of Italian Studies, I changed my mind soon after graduation and decided to pursue visual arts. That’s when all hell broke loose, but I don’t regret it. I love photography too much to consider it just a job or hobby of mine – it’s a lifestyle, a necessary daily fix.
I’ve worked as a part-time photojournalist and cruise ship photographer before I decided to go back to school and obtain another degree. I attended Hudson Valley Community College in Albany, NY (2013-2014) where I got a certificate in Digital Media. Afterwards, I’ve spent a year in the USA, as a graphic design intern in Albany, NY and photography intern at TRG Studio in Cleveland, OH. Currently, I’m a web designer at Qode Interactive, a WordPress development company.
I’m a big fan of outdoor portrait and stage photography as well as band promo shoots and I’m looking forward to working with young bands and artists. I’ll add a bit of trivia – I live with my boyfriend (and photo assistant!) Antonio on the 10th floor of an old high-rise building (after moving out from a modified garage apartment where we’ve spent around two years) and in addition to my photo equipment, we own a guitar, synthesizer and tambourine, so I guess you can call it a full-time artist life. A bit tough at times, but quite fun.
Besides helping me organize shoots, Antonio is into blogging – if you find him cute or interesting or weird, feel free to read his flash fiction at Syeta Stories.
