Meet your photographer Masha

Hello there and welcome to Mashas Photos! 

My name is Masha and I am a principal  photographer for Mashas Photos. I am residing on the beautiful Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia.  Originally I was born in Russia. No, not in cold Siberia. My home town is Novorossiysk and it's situated on the Black Sea coast. Winter there is very mild and sometimes we don't even get snow there. When I turned 15 I moved to Australia by myself ( I won't bore you with that story :) it's very looong).


To cut it short, I graduated with a Bachelor degree for Accounting and ended up working over 11 years within the corporate industry. Even though I knew that photography was my life passion.

In 2013 I decided to be true to myself and made the decision to change my life. I resigned from my job and enrolled in photography course. Since then my camera and I have been inseparable ever since! 

Speaking about "together forever", in June 2015 I had the privilege to marry my best friend in the picturesque Montenegro. We had a very beautiful wedding with close family and friends only. So I now understand first hand the stress/pressure my poor brides go through on the day of their weddings. I didn't expect to experience so many emotions in the one day but I wouldn't change a thing and it has taught me so much.

A few more facts about me:

- I love notebooks. I have a pile of notebooks sitting on my desk and it makes me happy. 

- for some reason a visit to IKEA makes me happy

- I love coffee. If you are guests in my house I can make you coffee in 3 different ways (Turkish coffee, capsule coffee and Italian percolator stove top coffee). And still I buy one take away coffee every day. There is something special about that paper take away cup

-  I love travelling. So far I made it to 34 countries.
