Saint Petersburg based photographer Alina Shamalova has been shooting professionally for about three years now, sharing her view on the world through the lens of her Mamiya 645. Despite having inspired thousands through her profiles on flickr and deviantart, her work hasn’t been published anywhere, yet. Because she has got talent enough to make it big in this industry.
When asked about what inspires her, she answers: “Inspiration comes only during the work. But I am primarily inspired by extraordinary people. Their unusual appearance or behavior caused my interest. Secondly, I try to notice what is happening around me. Sometimes it is so beautiful that you forget to breathe. I work with professional models and real people. Both are interesting.”
Here’s some of her work:
