"I had no idea I was going to fall in love with photography when I chose a major in architecture, but fall in love I did, during my very last semester at UC Berkeley.

I first became fascinated with photography as a child, back in Moscow, Soviet Union, when my dad would transform our tiny bathroom into a darkroom. In the eerie glow of a red bulb, I watched incomprehensible negative images magically emerge as familiar faces in the developer tray.

I am grateful for my education in architecture and design as it gives me a keen insight into the design process, spacial relationships and flow, and a common language with clients in the design community.

Over the past 35 years, I have been very fortunate to collaborate and forge lasting relationships with numerous architectural, interior design, and construction firms, as well as retail clients such as Target and Neiman Marcus."
