Hello! My name is Ilia. I was born in Russia in 1976. I started photography when I was 7 years old with russian all-mechanical camera Smena 8m, which I disassembled a few month after starting using it. Of course, when I re-assembled there were some spare parts. I had to "borrow" my dad's camera ("Orion"). On my 14th birthday I got my first SLR - it was russian Zenit-TTL. I was mostly in b&w photography, processing everything in my home darkroom, though I had some experience with Orwochrome slide films. Now I mostly use slide films, partly because I don't want prints to occupy all my living space. Photography isn't my source of income - I do network engineering for living.
