Hi, I’m Ilya! It’s fantastic to make your acquaintance!
I am a husband, a father, and a guy with a day job, who loves to travel and loves to bring back home photographic memories.
I do not seek awards or acclaim for my photography. My photos are windows into my travel memories – or postcards from the past, if you will. I shoot in RAW and swear by post-processing, but my life is all too busy to painstakingly obsess over perfecting every shot.
In the end, it is more about the place than about the shot for me. I adore photos that recall smells, sounds, and of course sights of places I visited. If I manage to combine a strong sense of place with a good artistic impression, it gives me most satisfaction.
I suspect we have a lot in common, so make yourself at home and hopefully you will find something useful here. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line – I’d love to hear from you!
