Misho Yuzmeski worked as a guide, travel agent and interpreter. Besides his native Macedonian, he speaks several European languages: Bulgarian, Dutch, German, English, French, Italian, Serbian, and Spanish.
In 1992 he participated in the work of the first private radio station in Ohrid. In the radio, he worked nearly two years as editor and presenter of shows. In the same year he had an encounter with the photographer Atanas Talevski. Their meeting led to an intensive long-term cooperation in the field of photographic art. Both in 2007 founded the first photo gallery in Elšani. Moreover, Talevski`s photos can be seen in printed publications authored by Yuzmeski who for many years was the organizer of his photo exhibitions. The experience from this cooperation helps Yuzmeski to develop his own photographic career.
Besides photography, Yuzmeski has been involved in writing and publishing. He writes short stories, essays and criticism. He is author of several books of prose, as well as publications in the fields of tourism and culture. Yuzmeski is member of the editorial boards of Narodna Volya (issued by the Macedonian community in Bulgaria) and Branuvanya (published in Struga, Republic of Macedonia). His short stories and essays have appeared in a number Macedonian (Sovremenost, Veles, Ohridski Novini, Branuvanya) and foreign periodicals.
In June 2011 in Ohrid,Yuzmeski founded the Cultural Centre "Cultura 365". Here he actively supports other photographers in the promotion of their art work, and keeps from oblivion the names and the work of other Macedonian authors.
On June 19, 2011, in "Cultura 365" was opened a memorial room dedicated to the Dutch writer A. den Doolaard with an exhibition of books and documents, organized by Yuzmeski. He has also published articles on the role of den Doolaard in the development of the Dutch-Macedonian relations.
