My real name is Stanislav Puchkovsky, I am from Yekaterinburg, Russia. Sean Archer is an agent from the movie Face Off. I took the nickname when I was not sure if I’m any good in this.
I think, I’m still a beginner. First started shooting in January 2012, almost accidentally. At first, all my models were my friends. Thank God, they’re very patient people. It helps that I had finished the architectural academy and knew the graphic edit software. These are very useful skills in modern photography.
My camera is Lumix G3, mirrorless one. A lot of people think it’s not serious, that you just can’t make a good portrait with that. In my opinion, it’s a photographer, not the camera, that means. I love to squeeze all from my little camera, and result is here. Then I took a big full-frame camera for a test, and what I can say? It’s better. But if you can’t afford it, don’t stop trying. You can do a lot without any expensive stuff. And it’s not only about cameras. I never shoot in studios with artificial light. All my photos are done with natural light. Usually, it’s my own apartment and light is from the window. If you can master that, it’s amazing. It’s soft, warm and great for portraits.
All I know is from my mistakes. I don’t learn photography somewhere. Maybe it’s not the best or fastest way. But, for sure, is the most interesting.

Beautiful pictures without a doubt BUT you say they are all natural light when clearly many are using off camera flash?
