About Photographer

My name is Darian. I'm a professional ballet dancer and photographer. I live and work in St.Petersburg. Except my work in the theatre I have my ballet hobby this is photography, of course Ballet Photography. Ballet is my native environment so I can show this world as the dancer see it. As every ballet dancer I have tours so you can see photos such were taken in Iceland, Norway, German, Czech Republic, Austria, Paris and Russia. I always look for new ideas for ballet photography, just beautiful picture isn't enough for me I want to tell a story. I love interaction between ballet and photography. I try to catch the movement to stop just for a second point, and enjoy it as if it were a still picture. Also i work directly with ballet actors like a choreographer with camera. I sculpt figures from dancers, cause i know how. I knew every muscle in body and possibles of human nature. My old project was called Soul In Feet, that start from my instagram: instagram.com/darianvolkova and #insideballetstory.
