About

Mikhail Petrov

Photographer from Moscow (Russia).

Member of The Russian Union of Art Photographers.

My favourite genres are landscape, street photography and reportage.

I like to travel, and I prefer places where tourists rarely come. It is in such places, and not at popular resorts, that the true beauty and dramatic nature of nature is spontaneous and created by man. During the trips, I try to communicate with the locals, sometimes in the course of communication I take some spontaneous shots. From each similar voyage I bring a baggage of impressions and, as a rule, some interesting frames.

For any other questions — write to me in the Contacts section. I am always open to communication.
