About

Yana Mostitsky

I am Yana, the photographer who will make your next photoshoot a pleasant adventure rather than a stressful chore. Come to my studio for your personal portrait, invite me to create a standout story about your business, or take me for a fun walk at the park with your family, and we’ll enjoy this time together. I have started a photography career over a decade ago, finished my Master of Arts degree at the Academy of Art University, graduating with an award for the Best Portfolio of the Year. My first education is in Life Sciences, and thanks to that I have a pragmatic and organized approach to whatever I do. In my pictures, I seek for movement, emotions and harmony. I enjoy creating artistic portraits that show off my client’s personality, profession and style. I am a huge fan of retro monochrome portraiture and I love producing fashion storytelling shoots with a bit of a surrealistic touch.
