MICHAEL STENIN PHOTOGRAPHER & ARTIST
Whilst growing up in former country USSR, I was educated by great masters in Art school. My first job out of school was as a graphic artist. Then I joined the Army and my duty was not only military service but design and art. From 1985 till 1992 I studied at the Historical Faculty of Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov. Among other things, I studied art history and paid much attention to art, took part in many exhibitions as an artist. But things got not so well at that time, I had to change my life and ran some busiesses, such as touristic agency (Mexico), classical music agency, aviation logistic, etc. In the early 2000th, I started work in the film industry. It was a really exciting new thing I’m doing with my life. It was very cool to develop media projects but I missed art. I took up photography, more or less by chance mainly as a part of art and joined the Classic photography school and I was happy to learn from the great masters. But photography was only the part of my life and in a few years finally, I dare fulfill my dream of being a fulltime photographer and artist. It`s not easy but I am supported by my family in this way. In the last 8 years I putting all experience of my life into the practice of art and commercial photography, creating monumental art and developing projects in the field of art and advertising.
