Biography:

I was born in Moscow, Russia (the former USSR) on June 2nd, 1977.

Straight out of school I studied flight-control engineering at the Technical College of Instrument-Making and Space Control Systems.
After that, I enrolled in the All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography to study filmmaking and graduated in 2005 as a cinematographer.
Since graduation, I’ve shot over 30 different projects including feature films, made-for-TV movies, and commercials. I’ve made my way up from a camera assistant to a director of photography.
My list of credits includes Russian as well as international projects.

During the last few years, I’ve been living abroad.
