camera Sony A7R III

My passion for photography started when I was in middle school working in my uncle photography studio in Detroit. I will always take the opportunity to see how my uncle was working with his clients. In college, I bought myself a point-and-shoot camera and started trying to figure things out on my own. I had the opportunity to talk with a number of professional photographers and really learn from them how to take good photos. After college, I purchased a dlsr, signed up for online classes to learn more about my craft. I got myself to a number of photography workshops at a local store and even had the opportunity to attend a multi-day photography conference held in my area. During my career I have shot fashion shows, done work for advertising agencies, has had work printed in a variety of magazines and have worked with a variety of different clients.

camera Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EOS 6D Mark II

I have been working in the area of photography since a very early age. I began training with my uncle who was teaching me how to photograph with an old Soviet camera called “Zenit”. Back in those days we didn’t have digital cameras, and everything was done on film. Together we took photographs, processed films and observed the processed negative with the help of magnifying glass. We would choose the best photos and manufacture them using exposure – development – printing process with the help of sophisticated hardware: special photosensitive chemicals, enlarger, special photo-paper, dark room with special lighting used in the photo-manufacturing process, toning solutions, as well as trays, measuring glass ware, thermometers, drying screens, timers, mixing and stirring paddles, and paper cutters. This process was so breathtaking that its difficult for me to fully convey the excitement and emotions that it had on me. Since then, many years have passed.

How did you get started with photography

I got my first camera ten years ago for a blog. Figuring if 'a picture is worth a 1,000 words', then posting photos would allow me to write less. It worked out, and I fell in love with the artistry, challenge, and process of capturing interesting and unique photos.

What do you love about your job?

Storytelling! I love to tell new stories or old stories in new ways. I also love interacting with clients, as it is their story we are telling.

What are some of your favorite places in Detroit to take photographs?

I love exploring the nooks and crannies of any location, and search for the details that will make the moment special.
