ANNIE MITOVA - ANNIE MITOVA PHOTOGRAPHY
Ses photos sont des oeuvres d'art! Elle nous transporte dans des univers magnifiques et l'émotion est au rendez-vous. Ne ratez pas cette photographe Fine Art Kids Portraits, qui nous vient de Bulgarie pour nous enseigner comme elle le dit si bien, ce qu'elle fait au mieux!
Annie Mitova is an internationally published artist who is specialised in fine art portraiture of children. She was born in 1978, in Bulgaria. Shortly after she graduated with a degree in business management and marketing, Annie moved to Dubai where she lived and worked for 10 years. In 2009, she decided to end her career as a sales manager for Marriott International, in order to be able to spend more time with her family. Annie moved to the United States in the beginning of 2011.
After a heartbreaking family tragedy in 2013, she decided to go back to work, but this time as a professional photographer. In October of the same year Annie started a unique personal project called: “KADE – Fairytales From The Enchanted Kingdom”. Initially it all seemed like one crazy and impossible idea: Annie wanted to create a series of beautiful and meaningful stories with her portraits, but she had no experience, no professional equipment, no budget, no experienced models, and all of her models were children ages 2-12. She also had no makeup artists, no hairstylists and no assistants on any of her shoots. During this project Annie planned, organized, researched, designed, photographed, post processed, fully styled, built props and full studio sets, made some of the costumes, all by herself, while also doing commission work in order to be able to finance her project.
“KADE – Fairytales From The Enchanted Kingdom” took four years to complete and is currently at its final stage, before the public release of the last series.
It seems to be clear that, the emotion will be present with each photographer!
