Gennadiy Chernomashintsev was born on the 23 July 1968 in Donetsk (USSR) now Ukraine.When he was a child, didn’t ever think about photography. The first camera – range-finder ( ФЕД) FED, that was presented by father,delighted him but the feeling that really great pictures make you feel different then when you look at just usual photos was not really obvious. In future that feeling became more appreciable. The way to the photography as to the profession was roundabout one. Chernomashintsev studied in the еngeneering institute and dropped it, started to write poems, then music attracted him and he tried to compose and play guitar. At the age of 23 he became addicted to cinematography.
As a self-taught produser he shoot 3 hundred advertising spots and several short films and created a production company. Then quite unexpectedly for everybody at the age of 36 has decided to be a photographer.
Now he is working as a fashion photographer.
