Instructor Biography

Alex Koloskov, The Lighting Magician

Commercial photographer, co-founder and teacher at Photigy Photography School. Instructor at, and 
I’m a mix of technicality, innovation, and out of the box thinking. I love to take technical challenges in anything I do, including photography.
As a photographer, I am completely self-taught. I don’t know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don’t follow the herd; I do it my way. That turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It allows me to experiment, to see outside the borders, to challenge the authorities; and also to create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp, and crystal clear.
