Born in 1982 in Moscow, Russia, I was working as a photographer in Russia and Israel for more than 10 years, mostly making portraits.

Eventually I shifted to cinema while studying at Musrara — The Naggar School of Photography and New Media in Jerusalem, Israel.

In 2011 I scripted, directed and filmed feature documentary movie When New Year Comes on Shabbat.

Since then I moved to Berlin and working as cinematographer on documentary, features and video movies. I was a cameraman on a VICE movie Young and Gay in Putin’s Russia, with Petr Zhukov I worked on a feature movie Çiçek in Turkey, with Olga Kravets I filmed documentary It’s Getting Dark (IDFA 2016 competition), and currently I work on my first feature movie.

Maffick’s Waste-Ed

For Maffick’s new channel Waste-Ed I participated in creating this video. I shot interviews, views of WeWork office and Berlin (also used some old footage, like my drone shot), and did some editing. Nice to see myself in the credits. Normally happens only in the longer form videos.
