Tell us a little bit more about yourself and what you do

I’m 32 years old. I Have two kids and amazing wife who make me feel stronger each year. Sometimes we are crazy and funny, because we feel ourselves like kids.

We can easy go to another country with two kids and try to begin new live there. I work as a photographer for ten years now. Started from nightclubs, then start to shoot in photo studio. Still learn a lot!


How has your state influenced the work that you do?

Now I Live in California. Here little bit different style of photography which can sell your vision.


I try to explore market and new opportunity for work. Not an easy way, ha ha!

I can’t say that I have my own style, but I have my own vision, what is good for me. I made a lot of different projects, work with different client’s, everybody has their direction of work.

So as a professional I want to understand the client totally and give them my vision and thoughts, and help to settle all questions. As professionals, we must create and do new things every day, and develop our craft!

Of your own work, what is your favourite project and why?

My favourite work is project  #HerWhite. You can see it on my Instagram or Behance network.
