Originally from Russia, Katya now works primarily in Los Angeles and Orange County. Her ability to create artistic imagery of fashion and beauty enables her to cater to clients who demand creativity and stunning images. Katya creates images that compliment her subjects by focusing on line, shape, and expression. She uses photographic techniques that result in lush, imaginative, and artistic photographs bursting with sensuality and emotional presence. Katya’s love of beauty and ability to capture light in an image keeps her at the forefront of her art. Behind her 5D Canon camera, Katya captures the spirit of the scene, showing the way a garment falls on a model’s frame or locking in that precise moment that makes the photograph spectacular. Katya’s career as a fashion and celebrity photographer accelerated after working with high fashion designer Tal Sheyn. These sessions captured the beauty, light, and form of the designs, expressing them in images with refined sensuality and elegance.
