Hello, my name is Olya and I am an artist specializing in lifestyle, branding and travel photography.
Photography has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. As a young girl, I would spend hours with my grandfather sitting in a small homemade darkroom, anxiously waiting for the images to magically appear on a once blank sheet of paper.
I am inspired by the soft glowing quality of natural light, neutral color palette, organic textures and the genuine human connection. Heartfelt moments of pure happiness, tears of laughter and ecstatic joy, occasions during which we feel beautiful and loved and time spent in the arms of those who are dear to us. Such are the precious moments that we often desire to pause and preserve for the rest of our lives. I cherish the honor of being invited to capture such intimate and tender moments that shape your life. I aspire to create images that are delicate, elegant and timeless - evoking authentic emotion.
My primary medium for photography is film. I adore its timelessness and charm. To me, film has a unique way of capturing the depth of light and color.
Outside of photography I spend my days with my wonderful husband Frank, our son Lucas, and our goofy snuffleupagus cat Dhalia. I reside in the grand State of New York and I am utterly in love with this larger than life, fast paced city.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
I am looking forward to connecting with you.
