About

My name is Artiom, I was born and raised in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania. Where is it you ask? If you look at the map of Eurasia, just north of Japan you will spot Kuril Islands. See? OK great, so Lithuania is quite on an opposite side, but the size is similar. We are neighbors to Poland, which is very popular for cinematographers it gave to the world: Janusz Kaminski, Dariusz Wolski, Slawomir Idziak etc... I believe It is in our blood to create beautiful stories thru lens!

I began my journey when I was 9. Yes, I still remember the day doctor prescribed me big, bulky, uncomfortable glasses which embarrassed me in the beginning. But what does it have to do with cinematography or photography? Very easy, frame. I started to observe world through the matter of lens and frame. I loved it. I could spend hours just reframing the world without even taking a camera in to my hands, anyway I did not have one.

I got my first degree (BA with hons.) in the field of Photography and Media Arts from University for the Creative Arts in Great Britain. I held several exhibitions in London, Maidstone, Rochester and decided that one frame is not enough to express myself, so I enrolled to the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles and got Masters of Fine Arts in Cinematography.

Until this day I cannot fulfill my passion for beauty around us. I hope one day we will have chance to create together dear reader, and share our vision with the world.
