Instructor Biography

Ustin Kompaniets, Photographer, traveller, youtuber, teacher & positive person

Hi! My name Ustin Kompaniets.

I am a photographer and traveler.

I love photographing people, as well as teaching other photographers create great shots bring their ideas to life, to be able to not only handle your photos, but also to earn money with it. The last few years I have been traveling the world implementing various projects for photos and videos.

My story began back in 2004. At that time I first noticed a desire for beauty, interest in film and photography. And in the same year, after different part-time jobs I bought a simple video camera and began learning how to shoot. But after 2 years passed, this hobby has turned into something more.

I was studying at university, and almost every day after the lessons I sat for hours reading books on composition, lighting and shooting techniques. In 2008 I bought my first camera Canon 30D. In just a few months, I figured out all of the settings of the camera, and learned how to get the picture I imagine. But that was only the first steps in photography, and I realized that I wanted to create beautiful portraits, convey emotions and feelings. I began to attend master classes, and it helped me to achieve some success in the photos, my work became better. Starting in 2011, novice photographers started to ask me to help them master the art of photography. At first it was personal education, and then, by coincidence, I was invited to work as a teacher in photography school. There I began to teach groups of people and share my knowledge with them. Just a year later, in late 2012 we created a Foto-Guru project. My partner Igor and I began to hold general workshops in Russia and Ukraine, as well as educate students online. Until today, we have accumulated a lot of interesting observations, ideas, chips and other knowledge which we are happy to share with you in my courses.
