Star Time In HEINZ Magazine

My article in the German magazine HEINZ about the starfish of the Northern seas, the northern lights and underwater photography. The magazine is published in German and English.

I swear that everything was as it was written in the article, including the filling of pies and the fear of imaginary bears.

Many thanks to the editor for the lovely lead in the contents.

Fantastic Creatures of The White Sea – Nikon.Pro

Skeleton shrimps caprellas are sitting on a laminaria leaf. They are very funny animals, albeit very small: they grow to a maximum of 5 cm in length. Caprellas are very social: they communicate, eat and fight each other without stop.

One of my best stories about the White Sea is published on the Nikon website. How and under what conditions we have to work, what difficulties an underwater photographer encounters when shooting under the ice. Serious things and oddities in one bottle.

The story is divided into two parts, here are the links:

The Best Interview In My Life – Viktor Lyagushkin


“This is the best interview in my life,” photographer Viktor Lyagushkin defined the work of Ivan Survillo, one of the brightest stars of modern Russian journalism.

All Russian-language Internet is delighted with these interviews – very long, but so interesting that it is impossible to break away. Ivan asks his interlocutors the most ordinary simple questions: “What do you read?”, “When did you last cry?” and so on, and we see how the personality of the respondents reveals, even through the hard and thick shells of celebrity masks.

According to Viktor, it’s impossible to say that Ivan Survillo somehow emotionally colors the conversation, but you feel very comfortable with him, and you really want to give a sincere answer.

And the interview is here.
