Hello, my name is Daniel Gatok and I’m a fine art photographer living in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Photography is for me a constant exploration of myself and a way to find my place and time in an endless sea of opportunities. I find inspiration in subtle emotions, natural environments, fantastic tales and some painting movements. It’s a constant process that requires creativity, experimentation, studying, learning and specially patience.
One of the most important aspects of my work is to be able to create a connection between the 3 subjects in every picture: Model / Subject, environment and photographer. Achieving this goal allows not only to create great images but to enjoy of such a wonderful discipline as is photography.
Teaching is a wonderful skill that happened to be natural in me. Because of this, one of my goals is to show and explain about my creation and creativity process.
