How did you get started in Photography?

We started photography many,  many years ago. We took pictures for magazines (Beauty, Collezioni), politics (Putin, Medvedev), newspapers, fashion weeks, fashion designers and finally went to Wedding Photography. The first time it was just a hobby, but now it’s a lifestyle.
