An avid photographer, I have been pursuing my hobby/passion for over 20 years. I never received formal training and it is my enthusiasm that has helped me become what I am today in landscape and nature photography, in portraiture and travelography.
From time to time I arrange and do photo sessions both in studios and outside. I also enjoy designing and publishing photo albums both for me and for clients (see http://www.blurb.com/user/store/ostapenko).
I like it when people choose my pictures to print and put on a wall as it means we share the same feeling of beauty and harmony that once made me stop and raise the camera.
I hope you will enjoy my works and come back again for more in the future.
