Stas Bartnikas, 46, award-winning aerial photographer based in Moscow. Photography is a serious part of life that combines my love of travelling with a passion for aviation. Past few years, I've been actively engaged in aerial photography while flying in light aircraft and helicopters in different parts of the world. I'm convinced that Mother Nature is the most sophisticated painter and I see it as my mission to capture its beauty in its perfect form. And I believe that people tend to protect what they love.
