Tell us about yourself and where you’re from!
My name is Tatiana and I’m 25 years old. I live and work in Russia, St. Petersburg. I first started taking photos in 2008… mainly of my friends and animals! I graduated from St. Petersburg State University of Service and Economics in 2014. During my time at university, it hit me that photography was really what I wanted to pursue as a career.
How did you get into photography?
I seriously started practicing photography in 2013. One of my favourite genres became nude and artistic portraits, and the plan is to continue to grow in that direction.
What is the story behind this photoshoot?
I wanted to tell the story of a traveller girl, but who was beautiful, and a bit of a dreamer. I’m lucky to have been able to work with such a wonderful stylist!
What does taking photos mean to you?
I put all of my soul into photography. That’s what it means to me.
What did you choose to become a photographer, above all else?
It’s a way for me to tap into my childlike creativity. Once you’ve tried it, it’s addictive.
Who or what is your main inspiration?
Books, people, music, movies. I also look at lots of photography, so that inspires me!
If you could do a photoshoot anywhere in the world, where would it be?
My dream is to shoot in New Zealand and Iceland!
What gear do you use?
Nikon D800, Sigma 24mm F1.4, Nikkor 50mm F1.4, Nikkor 85mm F1.8
Who are your favourite photographers right now?
Riccardo Vimercati, Marta Bevacqua, Demetrios Drystellas, Zoey Grossman and many others!
Where will you be in 10 years time?
Honestly? I don’t know. I just hope to be not in Russia anymore and be taking photos in beautiful New Zealand and Iceland!
