Feel free to say hi an follow me on Instagram and other social media.
I live in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, traveling when I have a chance. I have been to Sweden, Finland, Norway, Poland, Germany and Australia (the one with kangaroos). After number of years of web-design and illustration experience I now mainly do photography, video production, retouch, color grading and teaching. I prefer to shoot people, specialize in headshots, classic and fashion portraits and artistic nudes. I host workshops both about photoshoots and retouch. If you're interested in publishing my work and/or working with me personally, I'm available via e-mail. Thank you for all your comments, watches, favs and group submissions. I really appreciate it a lot!
Using my photos as a reference for drawing or painting is allowed for non-commercial purposes. I'm glad to inspire others like others inspire me, so if you wanna draw something beautiful while developing skills, don't bother asking the permission. Just do it and share the result with me, and I most likely will show it to the corresponding model. Though it has to be something though, not a 5 minute filter action over a ready image (that would be a cheap shortcut, not art). As a last note, be sure to give me proper credit: include my name, website and link to the original photo in my profile.
Yes, cool, but but how does one contact the model?
Well, You don't. This is not a dating site and Russia is full of men too, you know. It's not like every young attractive woman dreams about international stalking. That's just the beauty of life we see and share. Don't spoil it ,-) Seriously though, most of my models are not even models but clients, friends and other enjoyable people I chose to spend time shooting. So if there's no name in description, don't bother asking. Only the ones who do work professionally, want exposure, and accept legit modeling jobs abroad, are credited and easy to find with the help of web search -)
