My latest campaign for a Canadian designer Virginia Johnson LeWeekend summer swimsuit collection
Jenna Horton is a theater actress and a comedian from Philadelphia whom I recently met in LA. She hid most of the time behind her vintage glasses and quirky outfits, but once the glasses came off and a hat was worn for the photo she immediately transformed into a Hollywood starlet.
On a recent trip to San Francisco I met with Raul Piscoya – a talented traceur, local SF Parkour leader and a member of Tribe Collective http://www.tribalmovement.com/. Raul took me on an awesome SF walking tour to some of his favorite parkour spots.
Recently Joel Eggiman, an awesome PK artist from Switzerland has been passing through Los Angeles. I saw his post on Facebook and although we’ve never met before, he immediately replied. The next day we were exploring Downtown LA Arts District and LA River, arguably the most photogenic of all places in the city.
My documentary project about Parkour Traceurs in Russia has won 2 Applied Arts Awards – one for Best Documentary and one for Best Sports Story of 2014 http://www.appliedartsmag.com/winners_gallery/photography/?id=90&year=2014&clip=1
Last summer I was invited to Russia to participate in a-once-in-a-lifetime documentary project commissioned by RIA News, the largest news agency in Russia. 20 photographers from G20 countries were offered to photograph their subject of choice anywhere in Russia. After a quick deliberation I decided to shoot Parkour and Street sports athletes. I traveled to Moscow, Tula, Kaluga to meet with several Parkour collectives. The project resulted in an exhibition during G20 Summit in St. Petersburg and a book, which finally I received in the mail recently. Check out this project on my website Street Sports Russia
My recent shoot for Today’s Parent took place at Liz Ikiriko’s beautiful home. Liz is a former photo editor of Toronto Life magazine and in the present she is a proud owner of a vintage furniture store The Arthur http://thearthur.ca/
Her extraordinary style sense is seen throughout the shoot starring her two adorable and extremely well mannered children Otis and Ezme. Happy upcoming Mother’s Day Liz!
Stylish and sexy as ever Russian singer and actress Zhanna Friske is getting ready to become a mom for the first time. She’s made Miami her second home more then 15 years ago and not surprisingly that’s where she chooses to be when the baby finally arrives at the end of March. Hello Magazine asked me to shoot this exclusive feature at Zhanna’s request in February at her residence in Miami Beach.
Imagine hot sweaty mid summer in an empty weekend Manhattan. Ever wondered where everyone has gone to? Now you know! Long Island here we come!
This is a very special collaboration with an amazing illustrator and designer Rachel Riordan http://thestaylucky.blogspot.ca/ and her twins Georgia and Shep (along with a few of their neighbours) Rachel not just let us into her dreamy house but she also styled the shoot.
