I was born 18.12.1973 in Kazan city, the capital of the Tatar Autonomy Soviet Socialist Republic in the European part of the USSR. Basic photography skills I got during the in Young Technical School of the Central Pioneer House in 1984-1986. My parents encouraged my interest in photography but for me it was just a shadow of my real aim – organic chemistry. After the primary school was the chemical department of Kazan State University from 1991 to 1995 (diploma with honor) and post graduated course (PhD in 2000). Development the Internet and digital photo technology forced me to revise my old hobby. After many years of intermission I decided to return to the photography at approximately 2008. Sphere of my interest is still life, pictorial and creative portrait photography.
