My experience spans across fashion/portrait photography and programming.

As a programmer I can bring to the table a rare combination of strong interest and knowledge of both programming and fashion market. I have a strong understanding of conversion rate optimization and I am deeply interested in applying my skills in a fashion market. Aside from high-end commercial photography, I can offer assistance in social media promotion, building and launching digital platforms. In modern day of information I strive to create visually striking content and easy intuitive interfaces to effectively attract users' attention.
