Dear friends! Here you will find detailed information about different ways of cooperation with me. Some of them appeal to individuals, some – to business sector (companies, magazines, brends, photogalleries e.t.c). But the commong thing about all kinds of my activities is that I accept only really interesting, creative orders, complicated art teasers. I capture events that are overwhelmed with Life and colours, causing bright emotions and insights generating transformation of self and the world around! I work in the most various genres, so if you don’t find it presented on my website, it means, that my fortune hasn’t given me a chance to manifestate in this sphere. Give me that chance! 🙂
When I want to tell the world something fabulous and important, I try to use all the art languages I can speak: photography, videoart, voice, written text. You can purchase some of my oeuvre’s fruits here, in my small “Wonders emporium”.
If you like some of my photos particularly, I have good news for you! They can “move” to your place – home or office – as an atmospheric interior art object or as an unordinary gift with a soul for your friends or close ones. It’s possible to buy photos printed on natural canvas and digital as well for further private and commercial purpose .
You can learn more, see the examples of how it looks like in the interior and submit a purchase order on the order page.
Although the better part of my oeuvre is connected with photography, recent years I’ve started to experiment with video shooting during my frequent trips. Me and editor Timur Husnutdinov, united in the creative team, started to create short emotional videoclips, dedicated to the countries I’ve been to.
One specific video serie is dedicated to my beloved daughter Amelia – my permanent fellow-traveller in the majority of my expeditions.
I offer companies and organizations,related to tourism, tourist and outside activities goods production, to purchase rights for my travel videos’ commercial application in marketing campaigns (with placing logos inside video).
As an example I introduce the description of motivate video “Amelia’s little feet” (6 min), the rights for which you can buy.
“The main character is the 6-year old Russian girl Amelia Maratkanova, who herself walked 140 kilometeres of high-mountain trek around Annapurna – one of the most picturesque and dangerous mountain massifs of the world. In this bouncy and dynamic video this blonde-kidling is climbing the trek way set against the most beautiful mountain landscapes, meeting smiley local men in authentic Tibetan high-mountain villages. At the end of the video Amelia gives a short funny interview right after the reaching the highest point of the trek – Thorong La pass (altitude 5416 m).”
All financial and technical terms of cooperation are specified aside.
Possible photo session options vary from children, pregnant women and wedding photo shoots to creative studio or outside sessions for models portfolio. There are a lot of different kinds of individual or family photo shoots. Every has its own nuances and peculiarities, which should be discussed before. The result and final shoot price depend on them. Regardless of the chosen kind of photo shoot, the service package includes colour- and light correction of all shot material (you get quality edited, ready-to-print photos), detailed after-touch and art development of the best pictures (10 to 50 items).
LIVE PHOTO` (Up to 50 frames) from $ 400
Time erases everything. The deepest emotions and the most joyful lifemoments leave our memory as if they’ve never been there. It seems to us, that it’s impossible to forget the voice of your 3 years-old son,his little legs or arms, his smile and awkwardness. But when he is 25, you can’t retrace even the most significant details.
I offer you new amazingly simple, but exremely touching service – Live Photo. It is a photoshoot, consisting of 50 “pictures”, which come to life for 15-20 seconds. Those video cuts, composed by all the photography art rules, are made from permanent static point, but the person in the still will come to life, smiling, frowning, hugging you or telling some the most important words.
Video production is wasteful and utterly expensive pleasure, but at the same time final product and its perception mostly depends on videographer and video editor both, their tastes, rythmes, talants. In “Live Photo” everything depends on you, well, and me – a person, “peeped” by chance some scenes from your and your baby’s life.
You can easily watch and re-watch those monents of life, cycle them or even play one by one with your favorite music background. Thus, “Live Photo” is an affordable quality videowork, which has no limits of a film and video production industry.

Our babies grow up inexorably. We think, that we can forever remember their laugh, voice, facial gesture, proportions in 2 months, 1 year, 7 years… But a couple of years later, we discover with regret, that it all has gone away from our memory. The earlier you start making photo of your baby, the more touching and amazing those shots will be. Final price depends on the child’s age, photoshooting time, image complexity.

Pregnancy – is a magnificent and, sometimes, one only period in women’s life. It is always an Origin, feeling of pulsating life, new dreams an hopes.

My wedding photos do not manifest contemporary European photography’s “fashion” trends, they are not cold, nor droningly austere – they are live and vivid, sunny and cheerful, made in the most unexpectable places. Sometimes, those pictures are tender and touchy, sometimes filled with a cute foolishness and fandangle of two loving hearts, flavoured with a spoon of my fandangle as well.

Whatsoever, the family’s images’ usage in marketing campaigns can improve the image of your company perceived by the target audience.
For example, using my daughter Amelia’s image in marketing media activities, focused on young parents, may become a very effective solution. Here’s the example of the pitch:
Amelia – brave young traveller. Constant travelling, expeditions since the age of 2 months! In her 7 years this cute little blonde already took part in long hard expeditions in remote parts of Russia (Baikal, Caucaus, East and West Sayans) and 8 exotic Asian countries: India (twice), Nepal (twice), Sri-Lanka, Cambodia, Thailand (twice), Vietnam, China and Tibet! Amelia – creative polymath: she plays a flute, piano, draws and sings in a chorus, dances. She studies beyond fixed limits of traditional school system. Her school is the World itself, her friends’ geography embraces all continents
