I'm travel and landscape photographer, and been taking photos for about 15 years. My education background is mathematician-programmer, and I have worked for more than 10 years in one of the largest IT companу. In order to learn how to take photos and process pictures, everyday I woke up at 5 in the morning, did my hobby for several hours, and then went to work. As I was traveling on vacation and on weekends taking photos, I began to develop myself as photographer, sending pictures to photo contests, and even started a blog about travel and photography. One day I got a call from the Fujifilm and was offered to become their ambassador. For more than 10 years I have been combining work as a programmer in the office, while juggling photography, travel, and my blog. I decided to leave the office behind 2 years ago, since then I have never regretted it, although it was scary.
