My name is Viktor Lyagushkin and I am based in Moscow. Everything important in my life has happened incidentally. For 20 years I’ve worked in magazines as a designer, journalist and photographer.
I became a professional photographer in 1998. It happened that our staff photographer was busy and the editorial office had to send me as photographer. It was the beginning. Then, just by chance, I began to dive and almost casually passed technical diving courses. From 2003 I started to use an underwater camera.
For me it would be ideal if the entire world was plunged into darkness, so I could paint it again, illuminating it with flashes according to my taste, and people would see the world in a new way.
I am fascinated with the moment when a person overcomes circumstances or oneself and become different.
From 2011 I have been a contributor for National Geographic Magazine. I am a Nikon ambassador and Subal Pro Team member.
