Over the long years of photography, portraits of famous people have always attracted the attention of viewers. In the unique works of Igor Piskarev famous actors, singers, athletes, artists appear in unexpected and unique moments of life.
Photos of Igor Piskarev are kept in many private collections in Russia and abroad, as well as in the state Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
Igor Piskarev has released many albums and author calendars.
Within the framework of the exhibition, an open creative meeting took place – a seminar and a master class where Igor uncovered the secrets of shooting celebrities. At the meeting, Igor noted that an important aspect is not only to make good pictures that will go down in history and on the covers of glossy popular magazines, it is important to become friends with those who were fortunate enough to work with. After all, the light removes fatigue and sadness from their faces, leaving only love. And on the portraits of our “beloved and famous” we see their today’s revelation; Their past, frozen in the corners of their lips; Their hopes for the future, hidden in the eyes.
“I get so much pleasure from the shooting process,” says Igor Piskarev, “from communicating with people, and my good mood is passed on to everyone. Therefore, I always have a joyful creative atmosphere on the photosessions. I like it when we create together with the customer on field shootings or in my big studio, where we hold photo sessions with interesting lighting effects. And together we create a second reality – an amazing world of photography. ”
Such creative meetings Igor Piskarev does not spend the first time, and each time they have a huge response from the listeners.
