I am a Russian documentary and portrait photographer and videographer based in New York City. My documentary work has been published in a variety of international medias including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, Daily Mail, Dazed and Confused Magazines.
While I am not working on my documentaries I love to photograph weddings, events and other social gatherings. I find a lot of joy in capturing candid moments especially during weddings because I am able to combine documentary, editorial and portrait photography styles. I consider myself a seeker of emotions, searching for those rare and intimate magical moments between loved ones.
I find that a big part of my job apart while capturing beautiful events is to create an unique experience for those I photograph. I love working with people to make the whole process relaxed and enjoyable. Creating a calming and positive energy for everyone throughout the event is as important to me as the final result.
I am also a certificated yoga teacher.
