Shortly about myself:

Photography became a part of my life in 2008, when I got my first DSLR camera and a couple of lenses. I shot for myself for about a year and realized that photography is something I really enjoy doing. I could spend over an hour capturing the sunset above the frozen Ural River in -40 degrees Celsius without feeling the cold. I would shoot people running under the heavy rain, while becoming all wet myself. I remember being so impressed when I saw the pictures taken by photographers that work for Reuters, Associated Press, and other international agencies. The idea of becoming a photojournalist has been on my mind since.

 

I have chosen the top twenty pictures that I have taken so far and went around to local magazines and newspapers looking for an opportunity to start my photojournalist career. Surprisingly, I got a few offers to become a freelancer. About a year later I got an offer to be a head photographer with “East-West Alliance” magazine. It was run by the government and I had the pleasure of covering all major city and political events while working there. Later on, I was part of a collaboration with a few News Agencies, news papers, and magazines. I still cover some events for them from time to time.

 

I have relocated to Calgary in June 2012 and been volunteering and doing commercial shots a lot since then. After my graduation from Ambrose University in 2017, I signed a contract with Beep for Service and went around the country shooting pictures and videos for the startup. I`m back to Calgary now and happy to offer my services to you!
