  • Bio:

    I was born on December 21st, 1975, in Russia, I live and work in between Moscow, Russia and Capetown, South Africa. The visual arts have formed my environment since I was a child, as my mother is a fashion designer and my father was a plastic surgeon. I studied Arts & Architecture, but finally graduated from medical school and practiced as a plastic surgeon. My passion for travelling led me to Western Canada where I decided to completely switch my path, studying arts and photography at Eciad, in Vancouver. Two years later, I moved to Europe, living in Austria and Croatia where I became a full time freelance photographer. Upon my return to Moscow I could not find enough inspiration and I left to South Africa, Cape Town. I have been dividing my time between S. Africa and Moscow. I love shooting lifestyle, kids and portraiture. I am always trying to bring a cinematic look to my work. At the moment, I am expanding my experience into cinematography and I am planning to direct feature movies in the near future.

  • Education:

    Bachelor in Medical Science, studied Arts and Photography at ECIAD, Canada (uncompeted).

  • Work Inspiration:

    I find inspiration in travelling, meeting random people on my way, surfing, freediving, practising yoga and, certainly, in music and love.

  • Awards:

    Orchard Critics awards for best ad (South Africa 2011) / Silver Prize at Kiev Ad festival 2011 (Best Social Ad).
