There is nothing more great than doing something that you are
naturally good at and you absolutely love! Since very young age, I was
privileged enough to be introduced to this unfamiliar item (at that
time!) called camera – which did some amazing things! My curiosity and
fascination for this matter has transpired from just a hobby to a
passion when I was a teenager.
As a teenager living in Central Russia, I enrolled in several
photography clubs. I then discovered a lot of hidden talents about
myself which all derived around photography and simple concept of
taking pictures. From the snap of the shot on the camera to
development of the image in the photo lab, I was blown away with the
joy and amazement with the whole process – as I then decided this is
what I want to do for the rest of my life!
I had come a long way since those wonderful days of my childhood
dreams and anticipations. I had received my undergraduate degree with
specialty in Arts and Photography. I am enrolled in New York Institute
of Photography, where I am currently working on my last year in
studies. I am always eager to learn new photo gadgets, improvements,
and developments; trying to take advantage of all photo-workshops and
seminars which are being offered at local colleges and universities.
Photography is more than just a passion or a hobby; it is my forte –
my second nature! I have gained a lot of experience through working
many gigs like weddings, birthdays, and other special events. I later
became involved and experienced with making various portraits such as
individual portraits, family portraits, animal portraits, and others.
Seeing happy smiles and satisfied clients is the greatest reward!
Photography is more than just passion and hobby, it is my second nature!
