I was born in Russia. I then went travelling for eight years through five dozen countries, backpacking, hiking, learning and eventually teaching scuba diving, sailing around the world, and am currently living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
More than 20 years ago, I started working with traditional film cameras with only 24 shots per roll, the photos cozy and familiar, capturing moments into still frames that still somehow breathe and feel alive. These days I am still searching for those living moments in digital form. I love to capture portraits and candid, authentic emotions. I love the depth of field that makes a picture three dimensional. Photography, in my mind, shouldn’t simply be a documentation of reality, but a bright and vivid snapshot of memory.
I use a completely silent FujiFilm camera with top of the line lenses.
I’ll be like a ninja at your super serious churchy wedding thing. The silent mode will ensure that moments you wish to capture are not disturbed by the noise of a shutter clicking.
