I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and the first photograph i made was at school age with a very simple film camera, I think it was a Canon. I couldn’t even imagine at that time that I would become a photographer. It wasn’s even a hobby. But in 2009 I got as a present my first digital camera a Canon 400D and that’s how I found a new hobby, especially after some photographic courses where I understood the basics. The more photographs I made the more it’s became my passion. In 2012 I moved to Florence, Italy to study photography professionally and it was in the Accademia Italiana. I graduated in 2015.
Now I live in Milan and I’m a freelance photographer specialized in portrait, street style and fashion photography.
In December 2016 I took part in Shoot the Face competition. I chose woman portrait that I like to create the most. In women portraits I try to show the strength and fragility at the same time. I always try to build not only a perfect composition, light and choose correct settings, but also to create a connection between me and the person in front of the lens. Taking portraits is always a dialogue not a monologue.
