I’m an editorial family photographer based in Memphis, Tennessee. Born in Ukraine, my life and work has taken me all over the continental US, Europe, and Russia. Ever since I owned my first camera at the age fifteen, my love for photography, as a form of expression, has continuously grown into my career.
Although I’ve worked with various types of photography over the years, I can say with certainty that my passion for this work comes from people. From personalities and moods to deep-rooted feelings, it’s these meaningful and intangible things that elicit emotions and reactions from my audiences. It’s what separates simple snapshots from powerful photographs; appealing to more than just our sense of sight.
For me, photography is meant to encapsulate emotion, allowing for a re-experiencing of a moment, and sharing that with loved ones.
