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 the tools required to make beautiful pictures. At the end of 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, digital tech, and lighting assistant. Being part of Lachapelle’s photoshoots Hennadiy learned to care about the product and the importance of fine details when creating photographs.
