“Anything is an art if you do it at the level of an art.” – Richard Avedon
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 that lasted 9 years. In 2020, Hennadiy separated from Lachapelle and began his photographic and fine art career with Six + One agency in NY.
