I’m a Russian girl, who escaped life in a big city with its cruel winters and moved to Bali, and now I’m living my life near the ocean, feeling it’s breeze every day, riding bike, drinking coconuts, surfing and doing some photography.

I bought my first waterproof case couple of years ago and tried swimming out in the ocean with camera. That’s how I became a surf photographer. Now it’s my main passion, my hobby and my work. I try to capture surfing not as a sport but as an art – catch strong emotions, beauty of light, atmosphere… Ocean gives me a chance to express myself.

This series is one of my first works as a water photographer, and still is my favorite, cause it keeps the atmosphere of that gray rainy day and absolutely amazing ocean!
