Before moving to L.A. from NYC this year I shot with Daria
We shot at her friends place at Wall street with all these skyscrapers around that you see on the photographs. It gives a very timeless touch to the pictures. NYC rocks! BW series obviously.

BOOKS
The Secret Letters of the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.

Book by Robin Sharma

One of those books that if you start reading them you stop only when you turn the last page. Another beautiful story about real values in life, searching for answers, choosing to follow your intuition and finding inner peace.

Some bullets I added to my diary after finishing this book.

  • Never regret your past. Learn from it. And it's okay to be sometimes nostalgic and sentimental about it.

  • Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens. Meditate and listen to your inner voice.

  • Live from your imagination, not your memory. Dream big, explore and discover! Challenge yourself and travel.

  • Luck: is a marriage of preparation + opportunity. Do your homework and be open for new opportunities.

  • Concentration: root of mental mastery. If you can focus on things that are important to you - you can truly live fully life.

  • Reflect on your day! Write a diary. It will help you to see how many things are happening to you and you will not feel that time just flies.
INSPIRATION
Peter Lindbergh
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Lindbergh

Maestro that unfortunately left us too early. One of the best and most profound photographers ever. He made a revolution in the 80s by shooting women for Vogue in white shirts laughing and having fun on the set, behaving natural and not too posed. Real emotions and real life pure!

It took a while before Anna Wintour re-discovered those images and published them.

Huge inspiration for all photographers. His photographs are instantly recognizable and well known. Lindbergh's magic is very unique and almost impossible to copy. Doesn't matter how hard you try.

Quotes:

I have not taken inspiration from the fashion shows. I don't even really go to too many of the fashion shows - and have not for 15 years - because I don't want to be inspired by the same things as everyone else. If everyone is inspired by the same things, then of course, you all do the same pictures.
The photographer, even in fashion and portraiture, has to have a standpoint. It's important to know what you stand for, no? Most people just take pictures, but they stand for nothing. They follow trends and don't know why.

Photography gives you the opportunity to use your sensibility and everything you are to say something about and be part of the world around you. In this way, you might discover who you are, and with a little luck, you might discover something much larger than yourself.

VIDEO
Paris. 2018.

For this video I got inspired by Dolphin's song "Я буду жить" because of it's wild dynamic and pure aggression. I shot singer Dolphin 2 times in Moscow and I am a big fan of his creative genius that had an enormous impact on me in the 90s and 00s.

I shot Gabrielle from Oui Management. Her charisma and personality was a perfect match for this music and lyrics.

Filming videos is very different to photography. You act at the same time as a director, screenwriter, director of photography, editor, light assistant... and so on.

You have to keep in mind so many details and nuances and it needs your full concentration.
You create the story by little bricks and little scenes that have to make sense in the end by the final editing. Or maybe not.

Then it comes to editing that can take you days and nights if it's even just 40 seconds.

We started at stylists hotel room and we made filming around the hotel. It took me 2 hours to shoot everything. Most of the ideas came spontaneously and I just let my intuition lead me.

Enjoy

Liza Sotnikova photographed in Moscow in 2014.

One of my favorite photographs ever.

It was quite windy that day on the roof of ArtPlay and tears came not from sorrow or pain but simple because of the wind. I didn't plan it in advance I just saw an opportunity and captured it.
And it gives to a photograph a very unique and sensual timeless touch.

Be present and stay alert, observe and notice things that are happening around and inside of you. That can make you a better photographer.
In 2018 in Moscow we met again with Liza for a new shooting.

This time it went very different. We started at the Lobster Studio and then moved to Saint Room.

Results became very raw and sexually charged.

Liza has changed a lot through the past years and I was lucky to capture these changes and reflect on them.
