I am a 23 year old Russian photographer. I started taking photos 4 years ago when my parents gifted me my first semi-professional camera. I was not so interested at first, starting from portraits of my friends. However, one day I thought that photography is my calling. I wanted to leave my study and scientific work to become a professional portrait photographer. My parents protested a lot, saying that I have nothing except my vision. It saved my scientific career and, most importantly, let my photographic manner evolve from what people want to see to what I want to show them. Now my niche is black and white abstract photography because lines and shapes are what I love the most.
