It looks like a few ks of people came here overnight🙈😱, so i feel a need to introduce myself to the new crowd and share some things that the long-time followers didn’t know about me.
🎈 i’m a full-time photographer from russia🇷🇺, currently based in helsinki, finland🇫🇮. 🎈 i shoot fine art/conceptual images and commercial ones (for advertising and magazines). you’ll see both in my feed, but most of the photos here are my personal creative projects.
🎈 photography is my main passion and the way to express myself.
🎈 my first photo attempts date back to 10 years ago, i began to create styled conceptual images only 3 years after. so i’m in this type of photos for 7 years.
🎈 my works won a few competitions, including best of russia and paris photography prise in 2018.
🎈 you can find some of my photos on covers of books published in italy, germany, the netherlands, norway, the us, brazil and other countries.
🎈 here i write about my creative process, the way i organise shoots and come up with ideas, what inspires me and keeps me going forward, my practical photography and editing tricks, collaborations, and also my struggles sometimes🙈.
🎈 i’ve recently started to do photochallenges for my followers to try out my creative process themselves (you can find the previous ones by #dashapears_challenge
🎈 i never knew who i wanted to be when i grow up and never saw photography as a real profession. i never studied photography and learned everything that you see here by just learning from the work of other photographers, attending occasional photo workshops and my personal trial and error. now i’m here to share everything that i learned with you, guys!
now it’s your turn! who are you, where are you from, what do you do and what inspires you? i’m excited to find out! 😃👇🏻
