I was born and raised in Ukraine. Ever since I was little, I'd watch my Dad take photos with his Zenit E and develop film in our bathroom – I still remember images magically appearing on white paper.
In the mid teens I got fond of photography myself. My parents gifted me with a semi-professional Canon. I'd carry it with me everywhere – on trips, to parties. I arranged mini-fashion shoots for my sister and friends.
At the age of twenty-one I moved to Boston for school. I continued pursuing photography, as a side job. I did fashion shoots, family and maternity, small weddings and plenty of portraiture.
Once I received my degree, I made up my mind to be a full-time photographer. That's when and why I moved to New York. I worked in a photo-studio in Chelsea, and did side projects for designers, models, stylists.
These days I'm in between San Francisco, New York and Boston.
In photography, I enjoy projects that challenge me creatively and psychologically. I look to be helpful and useful; to show beauty in people, places and moments; to connect and influence.
