A little about myself
Welcome to my Backpack
I was born in Pinsk, Belarus and raised in Frederick, Maryland. My mission is to explore the intersection of creativity and empathy while capturing a moment for a lifetime. Here’s how it all began: In Ukraine, my father was one of the few photographers around because in those days, cameras were just hard to come by (before the time of Best Buy.) So as one would expect, he was a well know photographer of his time. Now, being the interested teenager that I was, the unique opportunity to learn photography just fell on my lap. I used my father’s soviet B&W film camera to learn the basics of exposure and composition, and soon found myself using a digital camera. Once I made the transition to digital, a whole new way of editing unfolded, so photoshop became the new darkroom. Fast forward to today: I run my own photography business. My clients range from newborn mothers to high profile customers that want to update their headshots and have their real estate properties published. I don’t believe in a task that is too large or too small. I challenge myself to continue to learn and master new techniques and offer services that nobody else can offer. My clients challenge me to go above and beyond the basic point-and-shoot cameras looks and I do this by using state-of-the-art equipment and the latest editing techniques. I’m also offering aerial photography as a new service. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
