Hi! My name – Valentino ;) I'm professional artist – muralist and designer. I make my living mostly by painting murals... Photography – what started as a business necessity ( taking shots for my portfolio, because none of the "professionals" couldn't satisfy my requirements:) - became to be my passion #1 and supplementary source of income :))) My first photo I took with my first camera... "Smena 15" ... when I was 12 y.o. Since then I had try Zenit E, zenit TTL, kiev's 88 & 90, fed's, horizon, polaroid, pentax, minolta (still have my good old DX 11), pentacon 6, canon eos elan, nikon d1, canons 10d - 50d... etc. etc... Today I take a pictures with my Canon 5D mark III and 1D MARK IV... My favorite genres: landscape, portrait, fashion, boudoir, travel photography and of course, documenting my main job - murals.
