We got a chance to speak with Fotolia Contributor Alexander Yakovlev, a talented photographer who captures the dynamics of the body in action in a very artistic way.
Can you tell us more about your background and your journey into photography?
I live in Russia in Moscow. I studied to be a lawyer, but the heart selected photography. Professionally, I began shooting in 2004. It was a photo-reports from nightclubs and open air events. Then, I worked as an assistant for a very famous Russian advertising photographer called Vlad Loktev, from whom I learned a lot.
