Of course, it’s an attentiveness to details. Never before was I so specially careful to details.
Why not... I think someday I’ll have my own studio (for my commercial and non-commercial photo projects). And right now, my friends and I have big plans in video-production; we are going to create promo-videos.
Q. What has been your greatest lesson learnt since you began your journey with this amazing team?
Yes, I work in the digital department, searching pictures for web-sites, doing retouches and collages. First of all, it’s a really interesting job that gives you a chance to use your creative skills. Also, it’s an excellent opportunity to get professional experience, because creativity is not the only thing you need to have to become a good Picture editor. But it’s awesome responsibility, because everything must be perfect before the publication appears on the site. I need to check everything many times and to be sure that everything is ok with picture’s rights or quality of content I’ve done.
Q. You’re currently a Junior Picture editor at the prestigious Conde Nast, working on projects for magazines such as VOGUE. What’s it like to be in such an exciting and creative environment?
Q. Do you have dreams of starting your own magazine or company one day?
"I think impulse decisions are often right"
I’m The Master of Philosophy, if it’s ridiculous
Fashion, portraits, and architecture. In fact I like all types, except some nude. Please, don’t think I’m a hypocrite, but I think that it’s very difficult to take pictures of nude people and especially do it beautifully.
Q. What’s your favorite type of photography?
Q. From your photos it seems you’ve travelled a lot, East Asia specifically. Is seeing new places your source of inspiration?
Q. You’re also a photographer with a portfolio of fashion and city shots. Where does your love for photography come from?
It was so long time ago. I was studying at school when I suddenly realized that I wanted to take a photography course. And so I started. Actually, I don’t really know where it came from, it was impulsive decision, but I think that impulsive decisions are often right.
Q. Which well known photographers do you continue to admire and emulate daily?
It’s a strange cocktail of aggression and melancholy, violence and mannerism, it’s like to be always sixteen. I like Guy Bourdin, Nobuyoshi Araki, Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi, and Deborah Turbeville.
Q. Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Q. Last words of inspiration for the readers.
Never listen to anyone, choose your own way and do what you really like
Yes, of course. I always try travel in my free time. It gives me new visual experience and rough notion about other cultures at least. What about Asia, I can say, that it was kind of a challenge that I didn’t realize when I’d decide to make a trip to China. And it was impulsive decision too, and it was right also. It gave me really new understanding of visuality. We live in a eurocentric world, I mean everyday life, and also I mean understanding of art, or concept of beauty. Asia was very closed for many centuries and also has rich culture and traditions. I like European Art, but I think we need to discover something new for ourselves. And also I like to travel in my own country, we have very beautiful nature, interesting architecture where the West meets the East and art of course.
