We took an interview from Slava

- Hello Slava! How would you describe your style?)
- Hello Sofi! I like to take photos of people , that is why basically I'm shooting portraits. I really love beautiful staged photography. My style wasn’t found immediately, at first I've been experimenting a, worked at myself, perfecting my skill, and a vision of photography. Almost all of my works are in warm tones , golden- brown tones . That looks stylish, impressive and interesting. I try to show the warmth of feelings of newlyweds , their tenderness for each other and love. Assistant helps me during shooting with professional cinema light)

- When did you start taking pictures?
 In 2003 I started working as web designer. I studied the color correction and how to work in Photoshop, but I couldn’t have imagined that I would be a photographer. In 2007, I first picked up a digital camera. At that moment I wasn’t really good at photography, but I was good at color correction. Experience in design sites helped me a lot)

- What are your projects in the future?
- Because I’m the wedding photographer, now I’m trying to connect 2 styles- love story, and cosplay. That’s why 2 loving people can be in the role of characters from any movie or anime.

- Build a house, plant a tree, father a son) And in terms of creativity - to improve, to grow, to find new ideas, create new projects, and continue to please everyone with my photo works. 

- At the end of our interview, what would you advise novice photographers for its promotion? 
- Above all, make sure that you like it, and if you really like it, just do it. Most importantly, believe in yourself and in your abilities! Work hard and reach the perfection!)
