Samuil Velichkov was born on 29 June 1962 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
Photography was just a hobby in his school years, but since 2007 it has become a real passion for him.
He prefers black and white landscape photography, long exposures, square format. For him photography is something very intimate. It's an escape from his daily round and a means to make others look through his point of view.
He has always tried to make viewer feel the atmosphere and the emotion in the frame, refracted through his worldview, which is frequently different from the reality.
