Hello, my name is Diana, I am photographer and retoucher. I have a quite unusual biography. When I finished school, I entered Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Physics and math are still my big passion, and I spent many years teaching other people to love science. Photography has always been my hobby; I think I did not take it seriously that time, but I always felt happy only with a camera in my hands. I worked in IT company, Economic institute, Business consulting and many other areas. Finally I understood that there is no better work than to create beautiful pictures, learn photography and to help other people to learn it. Over the years I still enjoy my work and I constantly find something new and exciting. I hope we can discover together even more.
