People often ask me how I get to travel so much (unfortunately out of envy sometimes). I'm always happy to answer any question& to share and I really do believe, that nowadays it's easier than ever to travel the world.  
(Not necessary in my case considering the madness every time I need to get my visa with the russian passport, but at least to travel EU is somehow ok, USA ..;)

My recipe is quite simple = take your chance, less is more, be happy with what comes to you and stay open-minded

Here is a little example : december 2014, 2 days before Chrismas. Right at the point when I wasn't sure  about keeping my job for january, I'm getting an email from a young photographers couple from Hamburg. Willing & Holtz with a proposol to go to Portugal for 4 days, to rent a car and shoot a couple of ADs for Plainpicture on the coast.

The travel expenses are covered + a small fee. Let's say for modeling it's nothing, considering the fact that we didn't know each other, but I couldn't say "NO" to a new adventure.

How did they find me ? Easy. The end of summer I was picking up my Uni certificate at the UNI Hamburg and saw an announcement on a billboard for a little shooting. I've send a mail and happily forgot about it. A few weeks later an answer came, we exchanged some more emails and the story has come to naught. Until December 2014 ! be continued
