About me

Photography has been my hobby as long as I can remember myself. When I was a kid my favourite thing to do was to look at the old photo albums at my grandparents' place. People's portraits always attracted me. I can't remember when did I took a camera for the first time, but one day I decided to make it more than just a hobby. After I came to Tokyo I've entered Nippon Photography Institute where I had a 2-years course of fashion photography. I like to work with people making portraits. My favourite type of picture is the one when you can't stop wondering how was it taken and what is the story behind. My biggest inspiration is Diane Arbus and Tim Walker.
