Hey everyone! This is my first blog post and I wanted to tell you a bit about myself. Presently, I reside in California after being adopted from the city Rostov-on-don in Russia. I am a junior in high school and I participate in varsity soccer, making videos in my advanced filmmaking class, and spend a lot of time reading. But most importantly in my life, I love to make pictures with my beautiful Nikon camera which was given to me as a gift my freshman year. My passion for photography grows daily and in the future, I hope I can be of National Geographic.
