Brief Summary
I love the constant journey of photography, I love finding beauty in what others find mundane, I love endless travel destinations, I love meeting new and interesting people, I love experiencing new cultures, I love wandering down unknown streets inspired by the sound of music, I love surfing uncrowded breaks, I love art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, but most importantly I love my wife Liliya and my family.

Im a photographer, but more than that I love to paint a visual story. My enjoyment comes from finding interesting characters and unconventional locations, using colour and treatments to heighten the visual experience. My work visually engages you by drawing you in to share the experience of the subject.
