Born in the Soviet Union, Stas found his love for photography at a young age. Immigrating to the USA as a teenager, his fascination with imagery of fashion and beauty eventually led him to becoming the first assistant to renowned photographer Steven Meisel. This six year period with Mr Meisel was an in-depth learning period for Stas in the art and craftsmanship of fashion photography.
Stas’ images can now be found on the pages of British Vogue, Interview Magazine, German Vogue, Vanity Fair, Vogue Russia, and W Magazine. He has photographed campaigns for Zara, Dior, Coach, Sacai, Moncler, Ports, Sonia Rykiel, Barneys, Levis, and Tommy Hilfiger.
