Victoria Pavlov

Victoria Pavolv is a talented artist, photographer, digital painter, and designer. The creative side has always been in her, as she began practicing music at age 3 and was introduced to photography at age 8. Her primary subject has always been people and the human eye as eyes are the windows to the human soul. Because of her artistic background, she uses photography to tell a story. While shooting she wants to see the personality of her models shine through and focuses on her technical lighting techniques.

She has been working with Adobe Photoshop since version 1.0. Her work includes everything from photo retouching, web design, image manipulation, to digital painting. According to Victoria, “nothing is impossible with Photoshop.”
