I was born and raised in the small city of Togliatti. Before becoming a professional photographer I worked at the Volga Automobile Plant as an electrician for 7 years, which is how I was able to buy my first camera.
Every weekend, my friends and I would go snowboarding in winter or wakeboarding in summer. That's when photography became more interesting to me - I took pictures of my friends riding all kinds of boards.
Some time later I was offered to work as a full-time photographer in the local speedway club - “Mega Lada”, where I worked for 4 years before deciding to move to Moscow. In the first four months I won the Russian Wake Awards in the category "Photographer of the Year" for 2014, which I won again in 2015 and 2017. In 2019, I became a finalist for Red Bull Illume in the Creative category and my photograph was featured in the official photobook.
Right now I work with clients such as Adidas Terrex (Europe), Toyota Russia, National Geographic Russia, Rosa Khutor ski resort, Red Bull Russia, Black Monster Energy, We Are In Sports and etc.
