How were you introduced into Photography?
My first experience were photos of my father, large images, 20 on 30 cm in size, made manually. I was about 8 years. Father had an old camera Moscow 6 medium format, with the maximum size of a shot 12 on 6, as I remember, also Zenith ttl and Lubitel 166, now I want to retouch and scan all the film I have.
What camera do you use and why?
My first camera was Sony F828, nothing special, simply digital camera, when I was 18, Olympus appeared, also digital but much more interesting, and Kiev 19 bought on a flea market for 50 dollars. Then was fathers Lubitel 166 and LomoFisheye 2. I use both digital and analog cameras, all depends on a case, in an ideal I dream of good analog camera.

What is your favourite type of Photography and why?
I like shooting people, their true faces, not those that you see every day, but faces that can be noticed once a year and just for a fraction of a second. I like to reproduce unexplainable, something without genre, it's more like trash, very atmospheric transferring whats on my mind. But I don't publish images like that, I don't think that it would be interesting to someone.
In your gallery there are some vintage looking old school images, then some water-splash works and upcoming next experimental portraits and more. It seems like you are still searching your way ? or do you prefer all of those?
A lot of experiments with different people with other photographers. For example experiment with water is fully Julia Borovaya's idea and our general realization. I can't say that I'm searching for something, I just do what's interesting to me, finally photography is always a search.
Do you have a reason for producing your images? To tell a story, produce a scene, or is it just the desire to create?
Sometimes happens that I plan a whole series and I see it from the beginning to the end, it's even clear what people will think of it, what they won't notice or notice in a wrong way. There's no point in counting on full understanding of the work, anyway complete implementation of the idea is sometimes a matter of a long-lasting plan and sometimes ? of a momentary decision.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I like details, something small and imperceptible, things that you don't pay attention to at the first sight. As a result I can list a lot of films, several books and many bands, but the main thing is how you see all this and how you understand it. The inspiration comes with comprehension of something bigger than you are.
Is there anyone on Deviantart who has had a strong influence on your work? How and/or why?
His images are incredibly emotional, even the most calm of them generates something beyond, and of course colors.
For his analog experiments.

Do you have any handy tips for Photographers on Deviantart?
Make series containing 12 images, when all of them are ready and arranged in a right way delete them and make another series. After you processed and numbered images place them in the most distant folder. Make a third series, don't process it, think why have you made it this way, develop the concept and make the fourth series. Ask a person about which you have good opinion to process it, then delete all his work and process it yourself. The series is ready.
