I am a nature and fine art photographer and digital photo artist. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, I made my way to the Sunshine State by way of downtown Manhattan and the North Carolina foothills and now work out of Miami, Florida.
When I won my very first camera in a traffic safety competition held by a local newspaper at the age of twelve, a bonus prize lifelong passion arrived with it.
Though rooted in a dedicated mission to explore all technical aspects of photography as a craft, my true satisfaction still comes from clambering through the mud or perching on a narrow ledge to capture that perfect shot. A joy matched only by the ability to share these unique perspectives with others, whether it is through the capture of landscapes or macro shots, wildlife images or abstract compositions.
