Welcome to my 500px portfolio!
My name is Alexey Korolyov. I have been doing nature photography since 2009. Revealing everyday beauty of nature is my passion and the way of learning the world around me. Landscapes, birds, flowers, mushrooms - for me all of these are not just natural objects but true masterpieces created by the world's most amazing artist - nature.
Although I travel to various locations for my photo shoots, I mostly make my photos near where I live. Here I can practice at an easy pace, searching for interesting ideas and objects for my shoots, I can see the things happening in nature, and I can photograph the same places at various times of the day and year, in different weather conditions. I do all my shoots in the genre of wildlife photography. I practice the moral principle “do not harm” and treat nature with respect.
I have won and been finalist for a number of international photographу competitions including such prestigious contests as Wildlife Photographer of the Year (England), Glanzlichter (Germany), Roots Natuurfotowedstrijd (Netherlands) and International Photography Awards (USA).
To me, photography is not just a way of self-expression and realization of my creative potential, it is also a great opportunity to communicate with nature, to look into the unknown, to observe the natural rhythm of life in the world around me.
