Still-life photographer and light painter, Vadims Pjatrikovs is well-known for his style and the way of controlling the light. He started his photography journey in 2005 and has been working on different commercial and still life photography projects in London, UK.

While Vadims has been working with a respectable fashion company in London he has photographed collections of such well-known designers like Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Christian Louboutin, Ralf Lauren and many other big brands in the fashion industry.

Vadims is an artist at his core. He started out as a painter and fell in love with the creative process from day one. He always admired still life paintings from the 17th century, but as a painter, he was looking at how he could speed the process up, as making a single painting took a lot of time. Vadims has tried different techniques and methods and one day decided to try photography as a tool to achieve the result. Once he tried it, he realized that photography was his true passion. Vadims went on to study photography as a craft and founded his own photography studio "PHOTOPORTRAYAL" in 2009. Having switched over to photography, he has never looked back. He sees photography as the next generation of his passion for art, and in a relatively short period of time, Vadims earned the respect of artists and photographers.

There is always something new and innovative happening in Vadim's world. And what makes his style recognizable today is this special oil painting look of his photography artwork.‚Äč

Today, Vadims' artworks are represented by such well-known galleries as DegreeArt (Artellite) and Rato Society.
