About Me

My New website will be ready and launch soon!

Check Commercial/Fashion portfolio @


For the past twenty years, fashion photography and video has not only been my specialization but also my love. Many photographers dream of having the contacts and opportunities that I have. When I started fashion photography over 2 decades ago, I dreamed of one day shooting for Victoria Secret and famous fashion designers.

VS 2013 Show photos
Today, I am living that dream. I presently shoot for an overwhelming amount of upscale fashion designers and prestigious magazines ...

I have some time openings between Fashion week seasons and can shoot for you model portfolios, actor’s headshots, fashion editorials, swimsuits, Lingerie/glamor and commercial photography.

"If you lucky you can get him to shoot with you, because he is actually "living in the plane" between NY, Miami, LA, London, Milan, Paris and Moscow." - Harper's Bazaar editor
Interview with Fashion Photographer Anton Oparin
revealing the secrets about how to shoot Supermodels and
fashion shows around the World.

Model Portfolio Development
If you are looking to develop or expand your portfolio, my rates are very reasonable for the service and deliverables provided. 
A few hundred dollars spent that will be the best investment you will make in your career.
I can provide you detailed consultation about styles and "killing portfolio" strategies, as well as help with NY model agencies placement.
I'm very selective with TF* projects and for all TF* work, I expect models provide or pay for a professional MUA and hair stylist.

If you convince me, I insist on meeting people before I work with them (unless geographically impossible).
Personality is as important to me as looks, maybe more.
If you're too lazy to simply meet me first, it probably won't happen.
My time is far too valuable to waste for someone who might not show up.

P.S. All photos will be recorded on CD/DVD or USB flash card right after photo shoot and you can take them home!

Att: Models, Designers, MUA, Stylists!

If you need Editorial Fashion publication at Italian Switch magazine for your portfolio - Let me know, I'll shoot few stories for them this summer! I'm STAFF photographer for this publication now smile

I enjoy exploring new ideas with other creatives through make-up, unique locations and concepts.  I'm experienced shooting both indoors and outside, leveraging natural light whenever possible.  When the set circumstances don’t cooperate, I’m adept with the latest Photography technologies/tools so that we can achieve the best possible results.
