Awards and Expositions

Over the past years Olga has obtained a number of prestigious international photography awards and nominations. Her work was exhibited at the galleries, art fairs and expos in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Hague as well as in Berlin, Moscow, London, Budapest, Kyoto, and various locations across the US: from New York and New Orleans to Vermont and Texas.

In her children and family photography assignments Olga adheres to the same high professional and artistic standards as in her fine art projects. Each real life photo session involves an artistic eye, respect to one's personality and authenticity of your story and attention to detail.
