Tina was borne in Bulgaria on the verge of a major political and social change in Eastern Europe. She started taking pictures when she was 6 years old with a child-size film camera her grandfather gave her, and never stopped. She won an academic scholarship and moved to the USA when she was 18 and later on completed an MBA at Duke University. Tina has lived in Florida, California, North Carolina, London, Florence and New York City. She worked in finance for over a decade in New York until she made the commitment to dedicate her time and efforts to what truly brings meaning to her life - photography. Tina completed a program at the International Center of Photography in NYC, where she is now a Teaching Assistant. Her focus are portraits, fashion, real estate and commercial product photography. She has been published in National Geographic, New York Post, Corriere della Serra, Bulgarka Magazine, Bulgarian National TV and hosted exhibitions in the US, Italy and Bulgaria.
Provided her prior career in finance, Tina is the perfect balance between creativity and professionalism. Whether Tina is photographing portraits, events or workplaces, she connects personally with her subjects and brings out their true personalities. Her photography aims to present stories through esthetics and creative angles.
