About Me

My dad is an artist, my mother is a researcher and a Doctor of visual arts.
After school I was studying in Moscow. Took part in competitions and festivals in various areas ranging from researching to photo and video shooting.
Worked as a photographer, doing photos books about culture of the Kirov region. One of my achievements is taking a 3rd place in inernational photo competition "AdMe Photo Awards 2013" and becoming a finalist of "AdMe Photo Awards 2014". From 2012 to 2014 I worked in Saint Petersburg PR department of "Hyundai Motor manufacturing Rus" as a photo/video specialist. Now I work as a teacher of photography in private school. My students does great succes and I really proud of it.

My hobbies are: doing clips for music compositions (stoner, post-rock, psychill), background video for concerts, movies and slideshows of photos for friends. I am a fan of Ingress - team game with augmented reality by Google. I'm a founder of one of the largest communities in VKontakte about my native city - Kirov (Vyatka), now there are 96k subscribers.

Most of all I love to travel and discover new places and meet new nice people.
One of my biggest impressions is a trip from Moscow to lake Baikal by hich-hiking, and from St. Petersburg to Portugal, then - Turkey, Armenia and Georgia. In total, it was more than 40 000 kilometers. This was really awesome and brought me a huge experience in dealing with people of different cultures and nationalities.
