Aleksey Volkov

Years ago in my life there were an ordinal secondary school and Moscow Road Transport Institute, I graduated from with a diploma of an engineer. Additionally, on my free time after school, I worked as a garage fitter and worker at a repair plant. Being a student of an Institute, I’ve been a content manager, a specialist on website optimization and promotion on various Search Engines, as well as a copywriter / rewriter, a photographer (main specialization is an object photography). Now I am working as an engineer in the field of satellite navigation. But, in spite of the specific of my main specialization after graduating from a high school as well as other of my occupations I’ve got later, my favorite activity (hobby) is a wild nature photography, which I seriously began to pay attenton to since 2008.

As long, as I remember, I mean, since my childhood, I loved all wild creatures living around us and with a great pleasure dragged into the house all wild creatures which could be found on the street, say, worms, spiders, beetles, tritons, frogs and tadpoles. It was interesting for me to watch them, observing their everyday life. This was a kind of beginning of my hobby — wild nature photography.

I also collaborate with the “Department of Moscow Zoo’s Small Mammals ”, which allows me to take unique photos and observe an everyday life of these zoo inhabitants from inside. Some of the materials, taken there, were published in National Geographic Russia Magaizine (November 2012, March 2013).

Also, I was breeding and keeping an exotic insects for five years, such as stick insects and arboreal cockroaches, which allowed me to accumulate an extensive material which become the basis for the big article “Wild, but Nice Stick insects” in National Geographic Russia Magazine (July 2013).

For all these years of my attraction to the macro-photography, I’ve been a participant of various prestigious and very well- popular projects and exhibitions, such as "Nature Images Awards" (France), "Golden Turtle", "Primordial Russia", "The Most Beautiful Country", "All-Russian Festival of Science", "Wildlife of Russia" as well as a member of Jury Committee of some contests as well.
