I’m a professional Beauty and Portrait photographer from Ukraine, based in Kiev. I mainly specialize in Beauty, but I’m also a big fan of Travel and Fine Art (mainly composites) photography. I wasn’t born a photographer and I cannot tell you a story of how my father bought me a camera when I was 2 and that I’ve been shooting since then. But photography has been my main hobby since 2005.

I never thought that I would become a professional photographer one day, actually I always wanted to get a Nobel Prize. That’s why I’ve got Master’s Degree in Genetics and even worked on human neural stem cells for some time, but then Obama got a Nobel Prize and I’ve realized that you don’t have to be a scientist to get one, so I’ve decided to drop science in favour of photography. If I hadn’t done so, humanity would probably have beaten cancer and had the recipe for immortality by now, but honestly I’d rather be shooting than spending my whole life in an underground lab slicing frozen brains 😀

 

Since then I’ve become member of Federation of European Photographers, Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographer and National Society of Photo Artists
of Ukraine, which you can tell by those rather modest stamps at the top of this page and an even more modest list of my credentials at the bottom of this page.

So if you’re looking for a photographer who’s attentive to details, dedicated, responsible, knows how to “fix this in photoshop” and make you 20 years younger and 20 pounds lighter, with whom you can even discuss the latest trends in science and GMO – you’ve just found the right person!

Make sure to check my gallery first to get an impression of my work and then drop me a message 🙂
