Sergiy Kadulin

Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1967, Sergiy Kadulin grew up in the family with his sister and mother, as his father died when they were two years old. He graduated from the military aviation academy as Avionics Engineer, and then from IBR MBA school, Ukraine. While majority of his professional career was with information technology, where he worked for such companies as APC, hp, Microsoft, and Apple, but photography for years remained his greatest passion and hobby. In June 2013, he left his job and IT career to focus full time on developing his own professional photography business.

Sergiy’s first experience was with his grandfather’s camera (made in 1936), and while he was studying in school he started in-depth learning of photography, including dark room processing, and shooting with color films. His first own camera was Smena-8M, which he had to shared with his sister. It was very popular in Soviet Union as basic, and very affordable camera for amateurs. When he was in higher grade, his mother gave him a gift – Zenit-12SD, which was his first real film SLR that he enjoyed for many years. Later on, while being on business trip to Canada, he bought Minolta film SLR with set of lenses, which was far more advanced one. Large part of his film photography was made with it. Sergiy was quite skeptical towards digital photography at the beginning, and switched completely to digital workflow by late 90’s until early 2000. About 7 years ago he graduated from the professional photography course in the Kyiv School of Photography, and then continued to study (distance learning course of professional photography) in New York Institute of Photography. He also attended number of training courses and master classes in different other schools and on top of it, learned new interesting areas online. He did his first photo exhibition in April, 2011, which was named “Sikkim. Beginning” and was devoted to his trekking in Himalaya, Sikkim, India, in 2010.

Today his own company “Sergiy Kadulin Photography” is focused on architectural, industrial, interior and fine art photography for decoration of interiors. Fine Art part of his portfolio comes from his passion in travel and landscape photography. He devotes significant portion of his time to internal growth and development, which to his strong opinion, is the most important part of any creative human. He is trying to use photography by means of sharing his deep love to the world, to other people and nature, and to pass warmth of his heart to them.
