About Me


Studing in the Rodchenko art school.

Make myself a better man to make this world a better place.


I'm a 27 years old, was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, traveled the world a lot.
My career started from snowboard shooting and then: travel, documentary, portrait, fashion, surfing, video editing, color correction, some sound design, music production and illustration.
Last year I've become vegetarian to bring some possitive changes to alive.

I love to have some new experience in every part of life, happy to meet interesting people, to share ideas and make something together. My favorite sports are snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding. I love to shoot photos and videos, you can cheek my works here in the album "PHOTOS OF MY HOME" or on my website (, Facebook ( ) and instagram (@isakin)
Love, Life, Peace!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's always great to meet local people, to communicate with them.
Real places instead of hotels.


We had a great couch surfing trip in California, New York and France - met a lot of great people.
