Hi, I am Konstantin.
I believe life is precious, it passes by so fast and many people nowadays are so busy all the time they forget to enjoy it. Raise your hand if you're guilty 🖐, me too. As it happens to the best of us, I picked up my first camera when I was in about 5th grade and since that, there has always been this drive in me to capture moments in life, whether it be motion or stills. I have always had a passion for photography, cinema and telling a visual story, in various forms.
Why I shoot
We all have a story to tell. Everyone has a different vision of how they want their story told to their audience, whether it is their clients, strangers, friends, or family.I have found over the years that photography can tell the story you need in a common language that everyone can understand. It really is amazing that no matter where in the world you are, everyone can see a photo and get a similar feeling from it, whether or not they speak your language.
How I work
In 2017, I graduated San Francisco State University with a BA in Cinema. Having worked with and around people of all ages since high school time, I am no stranger to working with people; this gives me a bit of a unique approach to capture moments for people of all age. It's crucial for me to find a real connection with people, as non-venerable communication makes up for the vast majority of how we process information, picking up vibes and being able to express them in my photos is vital.
As I constantly evolve and change my style to better suit my clients, I will tell you what is important to me in each photo:
- Lighting (Natural but controlled)
- Posing/Subject Angle
I have a huge focus on composition as that is what many "professionals" I find lack. It is so important to pay attention to background items and little tweaks in composition that could drastically improve the story.
