On Earth Sphynx cats are considered to be Martians. But the irony
of fate is, on Mars my kitten would be one of the few things still
reminding me of Earth. And this small patch of perfect green grass

I am a Ukrainian-born photographer currently living in La Côte region, Switzerland. After I left my native Kiev, I lived in France, Switzerland, Great Britain, Japan and the Philippines. I have degrees in Economics and Marketing that helped me to have a successful international marketing career for 15 years which I happily changed for photography in 2014. Being nearly totally self-taught I rely a lot on my advertising and marketing experience when constructing an image.

I love photography as a whole and will always bring something personal whether it's a pet portrait or a famous landmark.

My "Snow monkeys" photo won a FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique) Silver medal in Color Open category at International Salon of Photography Photo Artist 2016. My travel, animal and creative photographs have been published in various international publications
