I am a commercial and editorial fashion and beauty photographer currently based in New York City. Although I studied Fine Art and Photography at the Columbus College of Art and Design, my focus in beauty and fashion photography has roots way back in my childhood growing up overseas. I was born and raised in Brest, Belarus where I first discovered my interest in fashion, narratives and folklore. Although I moved to the states in my late teens, my culture and upbringing are a huge inspiration for the work I do today.
When on the set I like to think of a larger story behind the images. I aim for each shoot to be part of a narrative…I love being a story teller!
I find it exciting when I have the chance to experiment and play while collaborating with a group of talented individuals to create something truly exciting. My favorite photo shoots are the one’s where I get to create a scene, whether its building sets or travel to magnificent locations or incorporate unique lighting techniques into my images.
