Hi, my name is Hristo and I’m an avid traveler and adventurer who loves taking photos and often keeps his faithful DSLR at his side when exploring. It recently occurred to me that this passion most likely developed at a very early age (back when regular film was the only available option) under the influence of my dad who has always had an eye for photography. My first attempts were with his old-school Zenit (a true classic!) and several point-and-shooters, but in reality it wasn’t until the digital age came that I picked up the camera in a slightly more serious fashion.
I’m by no means a professional photographer, nor do I strive to be one at this point, but I’ve picked up a trick or two along the way and have acquired an eagerness to get better at it. I started the blog as a creative outlet and a way to share the interesting experiences I’ve been lucky enough to ‘collect’ and capture, but it’s become an important part of my life and encourages me to keep improving.
Please, feel free to let me know what you think, comments are always appreciated!
I do the same, so I know what you are talking about. Congratulations for making the Just Pressed page. Awesome!
Thank you, Drew! I just found out today what the odds are of getting picked, I guess I’m quite lucky 🙂
It’s like being a writer. Chances are … slim. But you did it. Awesome and enjoy the moment.
Really good photographs :]
Lovely work, congrats on freshly pressed also. Sharing is ultimately what it’s all about 🙂
Yes it is, indeed! Keep it up 🙂
Your photography is spot-on. Great work! I’m looking forward to following you and to see more of your work.
Thanks! I think here’s some decent entries / photos if you have the time to look over previous posts… I’ll try to add a Favorite page or something along those lines in the not too distant future 🙂
I will definitely look at your previous work and look forward to the future ones.
I like your style of photogarphy; excellent work. I am looking forward to future posts 🙂
Great photos! You really seem to capture more then just the image but the true feeling! Currently living in Dar, I know all too well how easy it is to just skim the surface of the culture but with a conscious effort, I have been able to experience the true culture of this city… with a little mix of the expat lifestyle! Congrats on freshly pressed!
Thanks, Mary! Dar was an interesting place to say the least, I will have a post or two just on it in the following weeks 🙂 Keep blogging!
Beautiful photos, Hristo! Very inspiring and emotionally charged! 🙂

Hristo, You have a great site and have had the fortune to do some amazing adventures. I am a fellow adventurous type and am planning on climbing Aconcagua next January. I was wondering if there was a way I could ask you a few questions. If so it would be great if you could email me directly (with the address I enter below). If you want to check out my adventures then head to http://www.jamieramsay.net

Also, really humbled to hear kind words from someone who’s done some truly incredible feats of perseverance and adventure 🙂 Well done sir! I am in awe.
