Golden Autumn in Liepaja 2015 http://www.fotofjodor.com/blog/2015/12/golden-autumn-in-liepaja-2015 (ru)

This year I’ve witnessed a wonderful golden autumn in Liepaja, Latvia. Not every year happens to see such a beautiful, colorful and warm autumn. Despite lack of time, I just couldn’t ignore that season, so I grabbed my camera and took a walk in my beloved town – Liepaja.

Here are some pictures I took:

Art Camp 2013 http://www.fotofjodor.com/blog/2013/8/art-camp-2013 (lv ru)

On 9th – 11th in Ventspils took place annual international creative camp for photographers Art Camp 2013. The event is very remarkable and interesting – about 300 photographers gathered out there. We have visited festival for the fourth time in a row (didn’t miss a time since first Art Camp 2010). Traditionally Art Camp took place on Baltic seacoast in Ventspils. Part of the event was organized in Piejūras kempings this year, what is very convenient and gave atmosphere of comfort.

Lections were organized in the house of theater Jūras vārti – great place for such an event. Every Art Camp there were lectors, who impressed at most, this time favorits  – Gunars Binde (Latvia), Olersandr Lyapin (Ukraine), Martin Vrabko (Slovakia) and Svetlana Petrova (Russia). There was Igor Sakharov (Russia) as well (created absolute furor last year), but he was unavailable for the most of the participants because his lections were organized for very small amount of people. I know photographers in person, who didn’t visit Art Camp 2013 because of this. Anyway, this year Igor Sakharov’s wife (Svetlana Petrova) got laurels of glory. Actually, there were not many people from previous Art Camp, mostly came new participants. Was expected two times more people than arrived this year. There was enough time for informal dialogues with photography masters between lections and master classes. Lectors were open for chats and answered the questions we asked.

At the same time with Art Camp 2013 took place first Fusion Bodypainting Festival.

While Art Camp were represented drones for air shooting. Sony Latvian branch has organized photo contest with main prize Sony NEX-6 camera with two lenses. By the way every contest participant got small prizes as well. It was not the only contest while Art Camp – I’ve got as one of the winners flash light soft box for cocktail preparation shooting (every participant got coctail for free), curated by Spot studios.

Here are some photos from Art Camp 2013

Salvador Dali. Materialization of the surreal http://www.fotofjodor.com/blog/2013/7/salvador-dali-materialization-of-the-surreal (lv ru)

Today on 12th July I’ve visited opening  of art exhibition “Salvador Dali. Materialization of the surreal” in museum of Liepaja, which will be available till 13th Augusts. On this exhibition are presented originals of Salvador Dali works – lithography, ceramic, medals and sculptures from privet collections.

Salvador Dali (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989) – Spanish painter, sculptor, filmmaker and writer. One of the most famous artists of surrealism.

I am very pleased with my visit to Salvador Dali exhibition; his art works amazed me with its creativity and strangeness, with its meaningful, with composition and colour. I’ve spent there about two hours and am going to visit the exhibition again. So I am quite impressed.

Here are few photographs from there:

Wedding in Liepaja http://www.fotofjodor.com/blog/2013/7/wedding-liepaja On 20th  April I was at the wedding of the friends of mine as guests not as photographer. But I couldn’t go in there without a camera, although for the wedding were assigned photographer and videographer as well. Anyway I’ve got the time to write about this here on the blog only now. But better later than never. So I’ve got a lot of positive emotions, first of all because it was my friends’ wedding and second, because of the beautiful wedding couple and very nice wedding overall. Here are some photos:

Winter came http://www.fotofjodor.com/blog/2012/12/winter-came Surprised cat between tree branches covered with snow in winter

We were spending our weekend in the country cottage, when the real winter came to us. It wasn't first snow of this winter, but today in the morning we were surprised how much snow we've got just in one night. Everything became white and clean. Snow covered all around. I was forced to clean the road and path, so I had to work rather with the shovel than with the camera. But anyway as soon as we got suitable light we took few shots. (To see pictures in its own galleries click on it.)

Of cause this is not Photokina and I won't write about news in photo industry, though for the first time Riga Photo Show was quite impressive. I've visited the Show on 10th and spent almost a day out there. There were organized many different workshops and  seminars and I attended one seminar guided by Andrejs Zavadskis - young and talented professional photographer from Riga - and it worth it. Will see what brings us next year.

Old one was completely out of date. On the site will be available portfolios of photographers Fjodor Romanov and Konstantin Romanov and galleries of our stock photographs. This will take a while before the site will be completed - we need to edit and upload files, as well as to scan our films (Fjodor Romanov) and customize site's appearance for the best browse and view experience - so please be patient and come back again. This is new period for us and we are happy to get this possibility to share our passion with you!
