Freelance Photographer in Dubai
I am a freelance photographer in Dubai with 5 years of experience. I was born in Russia and then move to Dubai. I always try to capture unique images that portray the client’s desired look. Passion and client satisfaction is what drives me to create the perfect portrait. Whether I photograph your engagement, wedding, maternity, family or newborn session – I will always be looking for THE moment that will make your heart smile forever.
Photography is the only thing that I’ve ever wanted to do. It challenges me and excites me at the same time. Straight after school, I started doing darkroom courses and began developing my own film and printing my own images. I went on to study photography full time for 3 years and have been loving my craft for the last 5 years. My primary passion is people. I love capturing the essence of someone. Those natural smiles, spontaneous looks and the moments that unfold during a shoot keep me loving what I do. I really can’t imagine doing anything else. My camera is an extension of me and it’s those moments that are magical for me.I want my clients to feel completely at ease with me. I know how difficult it is to be in front of a camera. I have years of experience directing people. I will tell you what to do, then let it happen naturally from there. I photograph many different genres of people. From babies, weddings to corporates and events. Each is very different but my style remains the same.
What do I offer?
Newborn babies are best captured 7-10 days after birth when they are still very sleepy. I will treat your little bundle with the greatest of care. I have a paired and done summer camps because I just love children! Each little baby that I meet is just perfect. I marvel at their little features – the little fingers and toes, the little pout – just pure baby goodness! I want to capture the essence of your baby, without all the distracting props. Props will go in and out of fashion. I try to keep my images as timeless as possible. I do use accessories, but only when they emphasize how adorable your little one is.
I’d love to capture this exciting time and celebrate how beautiful you are. I love pregnant bellies – it’s a celebration of womanhood! Ideally, sessions are photographed between around 30-35 weeks when tummies are rounder but you can still feel comfortable. For me, having a baby isn’t just about the mum. Whether it’s your first child and mum and dad are just so excited to meet their little bundle, or it’s your fourth child and all the siblings can’t wait to meet their new brother or sister. It’s about family. It’s about those relationships. It’s about love. I want all that love to show in the photo’s, that anticipation, that excitement. I do have a selection of maternity gowns for mum to choose from if she’d like to wear one. As a natural light photographer, I don’t have a studio but prefer to bring moments to life in a relaxed, natural setting. I have various locations that I love to shoot at because I know they work, they capture the essence of Dubai, and I know that your family can relax and have fun.
For any individual, be it a man or a woman, there are hardly any days which are more important than the day they are tied in a knot. The albums are kept close and cherished over for a very long time. Thus it’s important that someone who understands the importance of the event is given the task to undertake this duty. Wedding photography is an important part of any Dubai wedding and I capture pictures of happy couples each and every year. With my vast experience, I have understood that a wedding photo is only as good as the professional who captures it.

I want to capture the little things that make your family quirky, those moments that mean the most, those little things that your children do now that they will have outgrown in a year’s time. I photograph my sessions at sunrise or sunset, whichever is best for your family and children’s sleeping habits. After our session together, I put together a private online gallery with a password, for you to view the images we took, and choose your favorites. Because I know what makes a great photograph, you know that special photo that touches your heart – so the final choice is yours. I do not share any images without permission.
