I was born in the USSR where overseas traveling was the privilege of high rank diplomats.
This fact made me crave to explore the World.
Coming from the family of a Medical Surgeon and Fashion Designer I initially committed the will of my Dad and became a Medical Doctor...
After doing the Course in Visual Arts & Photography (ECIAD / Vancouver, Canada) I switched my career path to freelance Photography in 2002 and didn't look back.
Photography became my Creative tool. I have lived and travelled to more than 50 countries for projects and assignments, participated in over 15 exhibitions in Canada, Russia, Austria, South Africa, was the Member of Jury for "Mode Vision Awards", have held workshops in Nepal, Morocco, Uzbekistan, SriLanka, Russia, India.
Within the years of my career I have produced commercial & personal projects, directed short films & TV commercials, wrote feature scripts & was creative Director on various projects.
