"Born and raised in Ukraine,Vladimir now lives in Massachusetts, USA. A computer engineer and computer scientist by trade, he started diving in his teenage years - that hobby has later become one of the greatest passions of his life. Vlad developed an early interest in photography – a technology that had a power to capture the fleeting moments of our lives. Digital photography has brought all of his diverse interests together – science and technology, scuba diving and art. Vlad is passionate about photography and takes his camera with him wherever he goes, be it the top of the mountain or the deep blue sea. A unique blend of light and color mixed with physics, computer science, technology and artistic expression is what makes digital photography so exciting for him. With just a dash of two other missing ingredients – a lot of patience and a bit of luck – it makes capturing the beauty and grandeur of life possible."
