Mine began in Chernigov, a historic city in northern Ukraine. I was born there but raised in Canada from the age of 6 and while my Ukrainian is limited, I do speak Russian.

What makes me…me?

I am a firm believer in a few simple things: you’ll never know unless you try, there’s beauty in people’s stories, the extraordinary lies in the ordinary and, connection to people is what makes a photograph great.

I love

Comfy vans, dim sum and pho (low key noodleholic), the occasional and under-appreciated subtle beats of old school rap, making sound effects when words just aren’t enough…

My passions

The profound…the nuances…the moments.

My photography style…

Vintage, moody, the warmth of natural, rich tones…the feel of a memory captured.

The goal

Bringing out the subtleties of deep emotion through imagery…creating your forever moments.
