I was born in 1984 in Moscow. I studied Philology in Moscow State Pedagogical University. During my studies I started working as a photographer, which gradually led to my favorite genre, sports photography. For several years I lived in South America. Until 2010, I worked as a sports photographer in federal mass media. Currently I work as freelance photographer with leading Russian media and sports organizations. I've worked as a sports photographer at major sporting events, such as the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Mundial 2014 in Brazil, and the Summer Olympics 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. Street photography has been my passion since 2010.
Between 2012 and 2016, I was a member of Vivo international collective of street photographers. One of my photographs was also selected by David Gibson for his book "100 Great Street Photographs."
