Born in 1974 in Klaipeda, Lithuania (those times USSR). Generally my way to photography started early in end of 1980s with some trials to shoot on film with my first Zenit ET. But all those attempts remained on amateur level. After graduating from St. Petersburg University of Economics and Finance, photography was almost completely forgotten, until finally about 4 years ago I have got my first *Full Frame* Canon 5D Mark II and started to train skills shooting landscapes and trying to find my own style and colors. Luckily I live (still at Klaipeda) at Baltic Sea coast, so seascapes still what I’m shooting quite regularly. I guess I always wanted to paint the world like I see it, but unfortunately haven’t got such natural skill from God. Luckily there is Photoshop, which probably implemented by the Devil 
Then after 1-2 years I have tried to shoot few woman portrait sessions with quite good results and this lead finally to combination of nature and female beauty.
