Val Tourchin

Russian-born professional photographer in New York City that excels in wide variety of types of photography from commercial product, fashion, lifestyle, sport and fitness - to corporate and private events - to architectural and landscape - to portraiture and fine art photography.

Equally diverse are my photographic styles from antique look - to traditional commercial - to contemporary and urban - to ultra modern HDR photography.

My strongest suit is the ability to see the light, as well as create complex dramatic and precise lighting, both in the studio and on location. For me photography is not about snapping lucky shots, but rather painting with the light.

My friends gave me nick-name "Black Russian" for having mostly black friends and (as my friends saying) "shooting black people". :-)

Name for my studio came out before I decided to give it any name. I heard few times models were saying "I did those pix in Black Russian studio". So, Black Russian Studio it is!
