I was born and raised in a small industrial city in southern Russia. I first became involved in photography in the 6th grade, when I studied computer graphics on courses. After graduating from the Lyceum, I studied and lived in St. Petersburg, where, by fate, I rotated in creative circles. Poets, writers, directors, artists, photographers - among them I found quite a few friends, who in many ways influenced my perception and my taste. Photography has become my nature. Motivation, mood, ideas, knowledge, adventure, travel - photography is at the heart of what I study and where I aspire, what I love and what I learn.
