I was established 1966 in Latvia, a part of the USSR at the time.
Moved to St. Petersburg, 1983.
I have developed my first film in 1978 and got hooked on the process immediately. Photography took me places most people are too evolved to conceive of, ever since.
My education has been largely autodidactic, classical painting, graphic arts and music being a huge source of inspiration. Psychological portraiture remains a focus of my continuous interest. Artists, actors, musicians and other remarkable characters are among my favourite subjects. I travelled many miles (and I hope to travel some more). Every trip is an awakening; travel photography has its share in my portfolio, too.
Daring collaborations which go beyond ordinary are more than welcome, I’ve done quite a few.
Feel free to contact me for a photo-shoot or with mind-blowing suggestions you might have.
I’m available for hire, do contact me if you require my services or prints of my work. All necessary arrangements will be made, and your support is greatly appreciated.
