My name is Octav and I am originally from Saint-Petersburg, where I grew up and have spent most of my life. I have always wanted to devote more time to travelling, meeting new people from different countries and, of course, devoting time to my hobby which is photography. In 2012, I decided to start making my dream come true and left my home city. Since then I’ve been traveling extensively, visiting a lot of beautiful and unforgettable places on the Earth. In my journeys, I’ve always had my camera with me, which has served to bring me to a high proficiency in photography.
So my hobby became work, and I absolutely love my job and I appreciate the personal meetings I make, places I visit and pictures I take at every single photoshoot I do.
Right now, I live on the tropical islands in Thailand. I’m glad to help people to save wonderful moments of their lives during their holidays. I am an open-minded person and love to communicate freely with people that I work with, so that they feel comfortable to open up and have a fantastic photo session. This is exactly what I love to see in my pictures.
