Hi there! Most of my photos here are available as PRINTS. You can and you should buy some! -)
This serves as great support overall and helps to cover core membership on DeviantArt.

I live in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, traveling when I have a chance. I have been to Sweden, Finland, Norway, Poland, Germany and Australia (the one with kangaroos). After number of years of web-design and illustration experience I now mainly do photography, video production, retouch, color grading and teaching. I prefer to shoot people, specialize in headshots, classic and fashion portraits and artistic nudes. I host workshops both about photoshoots and retouch. If you're interested in publishing my work and/or working with me personally, I'm available via e-mail. Thank you for all your comments, watches, favs and group submissions. I really appreciate it a lot!

Using my photos as a reference for drawing or painting is allowed for non-commercial purposes. I'm glad to inspire others like others inspire me, so if you wanna draw something beautiful while developing skills, don't bother asking the permission. Just do it and share the result with me, and I most likely will show it to the corresponding model. Though it has to be something though, not a 5 minute filter action over a ready image (that would be a cheap shortcut, not art). As a last note, be sure to give me proper credit: include my name, website and link to the original photo in my profile.

Yes, cool, but but how does one contact the model?
Well, You don't. This is not a dating site and Russia is full of men too, you know. It's not like every young attractive woman dreams about international stalking. That's just the beauty of life we see and share. Don't spoil it ,-) Seriously though, most of my models are not even models but clients, friends and other enjoyable people I chose to spend time shooting. So if there's no name in description, don't bother asking. Only the ones who do work professionally, want exposure, and accept legit modeling jobs abroad, are credited and easy to find with the help of web search -)


RETOUCH: little stuff
It's possible to use my time for little corrections and overall color grading of your images when you have the points and feel the need.
RETOUCH: portraits, nudes, boudoir
Have a close up portrait taken by a DSLR or a descent mirrorless camera and need to retouch it for personal or business purposes? Tell me more. We'll need to discuss the possibilities but often enough I can help big time doing the same I'd do for my own images :)
RETOUCH: high-end beauty, fashion or ads
If you have a commercial, beauty or fashion project and want my professional retouching skills involved, feel free to contact me, and I'll be happy to help.

This is a backstage video from one of my best photoshoots in 2014. It includes DSLR foorage of the whole team's work as well as some of the edited photographs. Mildly NSFW at some spots.
