Cover page with Ivana Spanovic for Arena magazine

So far, my photos had been published numerous times on the cover pages around the world. Nevertheless, it is always a pleasure to have another cover page. The pleasure is even bigger when it comes to some of my favorite photos, or one of the persons with whome I always have a pleasure to work. In this case, it is my friend, Serbian lovely girl Ivana Spanovic, one of the best athlete in the world in the "Long Jump" discipline, or else known as "The Flying Lady" as she was called by editors of "ARENA" magazine!
