CEO, AirPano (Russia)
His first conscious acquaintance with photography happened in 2003, when a simple digital 1.3Mp hand-held camera landed in my hands. He was highly impressed with the fact that a photo appeared on a screen right away! After that he became a fan of photography and dedicated all his spare time to it. He graduated with honors in International Economy and spent 7 years working as an economist in International Business Affairs field. However, the crisis changed everything for him: his office file turned into home and travels; his business suit turned into a fleece jacket; his leather case became a camera bag; his office notebook transformed into a desktop computer with two enormous screens; and Excel and SAP software got replaced with Adobe Photoshop ;) He joined AirPano.com to share my photographs with those who can't travel due to different reasons.
