Good morning

Published January 21st, 2012

This photo shoot was light, fast and inspired. Inspired by NYC, inspired by Polly's work & her presence, and by Alina's wonderful apartment which was so cozy on a -10C day :) Thank you Alina for being such a wonderful model and thank you for donating your apartment and giving me a hand with moving the furniture. Tea was amazing and I am still in love with your tea cups <3

My two dear friends Anastasia and Dimitry got married this fall. It was a cottage wedding held in the North West Ontario. Though private, with close friends and family only it had the best Eastern Europe wedding traditions; packed with adventure, games, and dance. I managed to pull the newly weds aside for a couple minutes (to take a few keepsake lovebirds shots) until a search party came for them. Here are the results :)

P.S. I am not a wedding photographer.

With 500px's release of horizontal theme I have redesigned my logo, inspired by a beautiful Hiruko font.

At OCAD U I studied graphic design, since my love and appreciation for fonts and typography is ever growing. That is why over the past couple of years I went through 5 logo / wordmark redesigns and just as many layout changes. It is really hard to settle when you are striving for perfection.

Here is my site's current and maybe already a past look, enjoy :)

My cards have arrived.

Published July 28th, 2011

Woo-hoo! My Moo cards arrived 17 days early (and that is on top of the rush order that I ordered, apologies for the wordiness).

These are my first business cards ever! So you can imagine the excitement. Do not get me wrong I have had corporate cards before, but these ones are my own. Not only that they are for my photography work, but also I have designed these myself. Yup, pretty proud of myself for that. They are super duper simple.

So, after about 2 years of re-inventing my logo and about a year and a half of business cards re-design and contemplating about printers and rounded corners, dye cuts and silver ink I decided to go with Moo's minicards. Funny thing, I almost ordered cards with them 6 months ago, but I had a change of heart. This time when I received a notification of 30% sale (which was to last only a couple of days) I had little time to think.

I took my most recent logo, added some basic colours, took advantage of Moo's unique prints per card and voilà - I ordered 10 ...
