I was born September 9th, 1971, in the town of Bezhetsk, Tver area (Russia).
When I was 13 years old, my family moved to the city of Odessa, at the coast of Black sea (Ukraine).
My interest in photography had started in 1984, and in 1985 I’ve started to specialize in underwater photography.
In 1986, I received my professional diving training at VSAAAF (Volunteer Society of Assistance to Air forces, Army and Fleet) in Odessa, Ukraine.
I have completed this training in 1989 and became instructor of Underwater sports.
For many years I used Canon EOS-100 camera with housing designed and made on my own. In 2008 I started shooting with the help of a digital camera Nikon D300 with SEA & SEA camera housing. Lens Nikon 10.5mm fisheye, Nikon 12-24mm, Nikon 60mm MACRO, Tokina 10-17mm fisheye and flash Subtronic Mega Color and Inon-Z240 are used for underwater photography. Besides the mentioned tools, Nikon 24-85mm and Nikon 70-300mm are used to pursue land photography.
