Taras Omelchenko



I was lucky to receive professional education in the field of photography. I entered into a local professional school and photography department. Education was rather strict and we had good teachers, who did not let us relax. So I started from old good black-and-white school; processing pictures by myself. I then had a very active reportage practice at the local newspaper, shooting up to 12 films a day. If one starts shooting with film, he knows the value of every shot. This influenced my own photojournalistic style in wedding photography.

I have been shooting weddings for about 17 years and I have founded my own photo studio. I also have large studio shooting experience. I have had several personal exhibitions in Ukraine, and this year in El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, California. Read More...
