Ksenia is a photographer from Saint-Petersburg (Russia).
Before diving into photography I was a professional dancer for 15 years. During this time I managed to be in a dance crew, participate in battles and shows, be a mentor and coach.
Along with that I tried to shoot my friends but I did not take it seriously.
2020 turned the whole world upside down and quarantine has put my dancing on hold. Lockdown made me stop and think about my future plans.
I had a lot of ideas waiting to be implemented and finally decided to take them seriously and start learning the art of photography. I decided to let myself go and it drove me crazy.
When I saw the first result I came to a point I want to change something in my life and to do photography for a living. Since then my priorities shifted. I completely immersed in photography, art direction and video projects while dancing remained as a hobby.
April 2020 (coinciding with the beginning of the lockdown) can be considered a start of my photographer career.
So, why do I love it? Mastering photography, I learn to catch details, see the world from different perspectives and strive for the great shot in each given place and situation. I learn to see a beauty in a moment and also can create that moment.
