Updated: Aug 18

Stanislav, could you please briefly introduce yourself, and tell us about your first encounter with photography? Who has influenced you to start taking photographs?

Hey there! My name is Stanislav Yolkin I am 30 y.o and I started with photography around 1,5 years ago or so for a photo shoot for my wife so she definitely influenced on me :)

From your point of view, what are the most difficult aspects of professional fashion photography?

From my point of view, the idea and the right vibe is the hardest thing about fashion/art photography. Just don't try to shoot boring standard shots

What type of models do you prefer to shoot with? Why?

I prefer to work with professional thin beautiful models with interesting facial features

Are there any other photographers you look up? Who?

Yea i love the works and visual styles of those genius photographers in my opinion @alessioalbi @harisnukem @ave.repin

You are going about conducting a photo shoot, could you take us through the typical planning process for your images?

Nothing special to be honest, an idea, mood board, some sketches/references, and model casting

In addition to being sharp and well-lit, your photos are beautifully edited. What is your retouching/production philosophy?

I am trying to leave a maximum natural look, using standard retouching workflows and

techniques, combining frequency separation and dodge burn

What projects are you working on next, and what are your goals for the future?

My next project will be timed on March 8 and it will show the beauty of a woman combined with a dress of flowers

Where can we see more of your works and get connected with you?
