I was born on November 26, 1972 in Moscow. I got my first camera, Zenith, as a birthday present from my dad when I turned five. After ruining yards of film, I finally learned how to take pictures. I was in love with the atmosphere of the dark room with the magical red lamp and the bottles of photography chemicals and was diligently hanging pictures to dry out in the kitchen. Unfortunately, the camera got broken in several years, and I did not revisit photography for many years. Instead I started painting, molding, making sand castles but did not return to photography yet. At the age of 15 I stared posing for photographers but was more interested in the shooting process rather than being a model. That's why I did not pursue the career of a model; however the modeling experience still helps me a lot with photography. Since 2001 I reside in The Netherlands.
For 8 years I photograph professionally.I specialize in glamour, fashion, and beauty photos for magazines, booklets and advertising. Nude Art and Portrait are the priority genres of my creative research. Primarily people are pleased with the way I see and photograph them. At times they say that I depict Russian soul in them. I smile because I understand that a good photographer has his own vision based on his personal feelings and experience. And ability to relay this vision is purely based on the professionalism.
