Ever since I was a small child, I have spent quite a bit of time holding a camera and taking pictures. I had a non-working Kodak Instamatic that I played with as a toy. Then, I got a hold of my dad's Yashica rangefinder, with which I learned to take real photos -- half format.
One day, my father brought home a Zenit 35mm SLR and I was hooked. Eventually, I got a hold of the craft and found myself shooting all sort of things. At times, I seemed to have to instruct my dad on how to use the old Russian camera for proper exposure.
As I became more creative with my photography instincts, my natural inclinations were to create images that illustrate aspects of life, cause-effect and simple composition. My dad thought it was a waste of film to photograph non-human subjects, and I had to do my "wasteful" artistic work out of his sight.
As my musical career flourished as a violinist, the mandatory practicing time and joy of making music overcame my photography discipline for a while. Since 2002, I have taken it upon myself to enjoy creating images and playing with cameras again.
My photo work includes urban and rural life, musical performances, corporate events, festivals, and just any scene or visual attraction that might catch my eye.
