Sasha Uzunov: Photo-Journalist & Independent Film Maker

Sasha Uzunov: Freelance Photo-Journalist Photo & articles Page PHOTOGRAPHIC ART WORK

Welcome to my online portfolio.

I'm an Australian freelance photo-journalist with over 20 years experience and an independent film maker. My specialist areas are: international politics, military affairs, and sport (in particular soccer)

I have also taken photos of world celebrities as well as shot video footage for North American, European and Australian television.

I'm probably the most versatile media man in Australia as I can report, write, photograph and shoot video footage.

I'm available for full time or part time work, or as a stringer.

I've worked in South-eastern Europe (Balkans) in 1992-93 and 2002-2003 and Iraq in 2005 and Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008. Video of that 2007 Afghan trip can be viewed on:

Video from the 2008 Afghan trip can be seen on:

I served in the Australian Army as an infantry soldier, admin clerk, parachutist, driver, reporter and photographer for seven years and did 2 tours of duty in East Timor with the United Nations.

My philosophy is that I will try everything that is humanly possible to get the story.

In May 1992 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (Australia). I'm member of the International Federation of Journalists.

I also run Luke Leon Media, which supplies photographic/video images to the media.
