about Alexander Kharlamov
My purpose is to create art for my self-fulfilment, if someone benefits as well from it or it ends up bringing up revenue, then even better but not necessary. Photography is my favourite creative outlet from my 'serious' life.
I have been now shooting over 11 years. I shoot fine art and only the idea of having a "client" is a turn off for my creativity. My main work is academic research as I am doing a PhD on behavioural operations, analytics and decision-making in the UK.
I shoot people, specialised in female portraiture, if I accept the shoot I never charge for it. But, I shoot very few times per year, time is scarce.
If you like my work and believe we could create something together, please do contact me (I am fluent in English, Russian and Portuguese). I am after people passionate about art, regardless the previous experience.
Since this is my passion, I make images for quality rather than quantity, achieving a 2-5 decent images after a session is great from my point of view. I shoot mostly on film in a slow and carefully planned process. I cannot bear rushing, disturbing elements and everything that is not part of the plan.
I am originally from Moscow, lived nineteen years in Portugal, then moved to UK in 2012. Now I am living in Leamington Spa.
My aim is to keep on creating portraits, surrealism, focusing on classy fine art nudes. I am in love with chiaroscuro and melancholia.
