Behind the Words
Growing up, I was always able to express myself most through my drawings, songs, poems, stories, and photos. Thank God, I was smart and wise enough to follow my inner voice. One of my coaches asked me: "If you have everything, what you will do today in the evening?" And I answer: "I will go to make some photoshoots." The same I feel concerning books and paints, music and songs. And I say to myself: "What a wonderful world!"
At the age of 12, my father presented me a camera. I took photos of everything and everybody. I had a passion the take pictures. At 15 yeas old an idea of a book about St. Petersburg with photos visited me.
In 2006-2012 I started to work as a Real Estate Appraiser and made about 100 photos a day of the city and its suburbs. In 2014 a daughter came to us and my husband made a present - camera!
We moves to Finland in 2016. What a lovely views!
In 2021 I began to study media. A camera jumped to my hands again...
