Background: I am originally from the former Soviet Union where I first fell in love with photography. Ever since I watched films and observed prints with good imagery I was fascinated with it. At the age of 11 in my hometown of Minsk I joined a local photo club. The club gave me an opportunity to get in touch with my artistic side. Thanks to the photoclub training and my first owned 35 mm Soviet "Zenit" camera many amazing shots were captured. At that point I realized photography became a big part of my life.
Expertise: After enjoying various types of photography my passion has been capturing people in their natural settings and in lifetime events whether it means capturing a one in a lifetime moment during a wedding or photographing an engagement proposal. Every emotion is unique. This is why I love photography.
Education: I obtained my degree in Optics from Middlesex College and went on to receive a bachelor's degree in Graphic Arts from Central Connecticut State University. Both degrees gave me an opportunity to see lenses and art in a different way.
I currently reside in Los Angeles, California and look forward to traveling within the state to make photographs.
