About me

MATEJA VRCKOVIC

MY STORY

Since high school, I am in constant pursuit of perfect light, great angles, captivating faces and extraordinary places that I would like to capture. After I’ve graduated from „Craft school for personal services“ in Zagreb, where my major was photography, I’ve started working for the largest media corporation in Croatia, „NCL Media Group“. It was there where I’ve gathered experience in all fields of photography – from portraits to social events, fashion shows, and sports manifestations. Being a professional photographer led me in many different directions, and one of the biggest experiences for my personal and professional growth was the opportunity to work for Rolling Stone magazine branch in Croatia as Photo Editor. Every situation that I have been in has given me space to learn something new about photography, people and how to put out the best of what I have to offer to my clients.

Right now I am pursuing the career of a Freelance Photographer and the past 12 years of experience that I carry along with my camera have been the biggest allies in my profession. My work has been published in various Croatian magazines and websites with whom I cooperate on a regular basis. My mission in life is to provide my clients with amazing images that they can always look upon with a smile on their faces.
