Born in Urkaine. Raised in America. Hennadiy began taking pictures in 2008 after buying his first DSLR camera. After a year of exploration and school research Hennadiy decided to study photography at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. In school he fell in love with beauty and fashion photography. He learned many different aspects of commercial photography and learned all of the tools required to make beautiful pictures. At the end of the school he got an opportunity to intern with David Lachapelle in Los Angeles,CA. Shortly after, the internship grew into a permanent full-time position at the photographer's studio as a retoucher and a digital tech/assistant. Being part of Lachapelle's photoshoots Hennadiy leaned about production and client relations. He leaned to care about the product and the importance of fine details when creating photographs.
Hennadiy is always in search of great opportunities and new exciting collaborations.
