I have known photography since childhood. This magic of the appearance of photographic images on film and prints made (as I understand it now) an impression for a lifetime. Then in the night amateur displays and seals from the old ФЭД-2, my creative ego became. But the possibilities of photography at that time were few. And I drew what I could not transmit through the camera. Now this graphic has spread around the world and decorates private collections. I studied as an engineer, but here, too, photography attracted me. Therefore, I defended my diploma project in hydrology on the basis of more than 100 photographs of models of river channels at the Leningrad Hydrometeorological Institute. Arriving in Kherson in 1991, it was no coincidence that I got to the Regional Photo Club. And there already, in the company of like-minded people, he finally “fell ill” with photography. Since then, I have held many joint and several personal photo exhibitions, successfully participated in dozens of photo salons under the patronage of the International Federation of Photographic Art FIAP around the world. Since 2010, I began to teach photography in my own photo school. Photography has become my lifestyle.
