About me

Someone once told me a very wise sentence "every thing you write about your self is nothing but a distorted illusion of your self". that is why what ever ill write about my self will not reflect on who I am in real life and in an objective way, its hard to sum up in just a few words who I am or what I want to achieve. Any way, because this is my website (And I can do what ever I want in it) ill write a few facts; I grew up in Qeeryat Shmona Israel, from an early age I loved drawing and photography. In my teen age years I was a fan of underground graffiti so much that the authorities where looking for the artist (me) in the local newspapers of the small city up north� I served in the air force and after the army I moved to Tel Aviv and studied design. In 1996 I entered the Web field and never left it even though it has its ups and downs. Today I incorporate between two things I love, photography and design. I cover the basketball team Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Euroleague and in the local league for the teams official Web site. I'm also a student for political science and media, and work as ArtDirector in Tradency Company.

In a nutshell, I'm doing what I love to do and I'm making a leaving out of it so I can safely say I'm happy where I am. These days I still live in Tel Aviv doing all the things you just read about, I'm hoping to move to the country side some day where I can listen to chickens in the morning and relaxing music in the evening. When ill be there ill update the page you just read :)

The Eastern Side of Jerusalem

In the eastern side of Jerusalem, We took a lot of awesome pictures from amazing angels of the city that Israelis don’t even know about. I went shooting in Jerusalem with one of my best friends. We drove in the morning to the old city of Jerusalem photographing the Western Wall area. Later that day we decided to wander around the narrow passageways towards the eastern side of the city, we started noticing there are no tourists around us.


We sow a young fellow taking pictures, after a short conversation with him it appears that the young dude is a German tourist who volunteers to help the needed. He took us for a tour in the eastern side of Jerusalem, We took a lot of awesome pictures from amazing angels of the city that Israelis don’t even know about. This German guy introduced us to wonderful parts of the city we never knew before and we got to know an amazing person who was a lot of fun to wander around with for a few hours. When it started to get dark and very cold, we said goodbye and returned to Tel Aviv.

The Second Lebanon War

Shutting rockets on the North side of Israel was massive and unexpected. Despite that I decided to go up north and capture whatever I can from the war. For someone who used to leave up north I knew that I cannot visit the area as long as the war continues. Shutting rockets on the North side of Israel was massive and unexpected. Despite that I decided to go up north and capture whatever I can from the war.


Fortunately one of my best friends Ofir served the army at that time as a reserve duty soldier for the artillery corps so he introduced me with the senior officer, I received a special approval for one night only to document the operational activities of the soldiers ( All according to the censorship regulation of course). On August 3, 2006 I planned a driving path up north trying to avoid the artillery areas. I got to my destination in the middle of the night, I meet my friend Ofir and he introduced me to the regiment troops. Few minutes after my arrival a huge attack on Hizbullah targets in Lebanon began, I started taking pictures while the massive artillery continues and all around me the cannons are shutting intensely and the thrust is enormous. The Next morning Hizbullah started retaliating, that was a sign telling me I should pack up my staff and go back to Tel Aviv.
