About Me


make art and share it


I'm a 25 years old, was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, traveled the world a lot. This Winter and Spring me and Kira (my spouse) are going to be in States - Miami and then LA.
My career started from snowboard shooting and then: travel, documentary, portrait, fashion, surfing, video editing, color correction, some sound design, music production and illustration.
I made films and photo stories for Leica, Esquire, Stereotactic, Burton, Quicksilver, GoPro, Boiler Room ect.

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
