Dmitry Dubrov was born in Novosibirsk, Siberia and since his childhood, he has been fond of photography. He founded a rock band when he was studying at school. Dmitry wanted to have cool, creative photos of his band but he didn’t know the right person to do this. He wanted a professional for this job. So, one day, he buys a camera and a tripod. This way, he began taking photos of the band. This was his first job as a photographer.
Dmitry posted these portraits on social media. People liked his pictures. Among them, there was a man named Kiril. He was the owner of a stock company, that was making content for Shutterstock Inc., IStocks etc. Kiril liked the Dmitry’s vision of taking pictures and they began to collaborate.
Dmitry decided to continue his studies, that’s why he moved from the suburbs to Novosibirsk. He decided to search for a place in the student hostel, he got a message from Kiril who invited Dmitry to live with him and other people with the same vision in the city centre.

At the end of this unpleasant chapter of his life, Dmitry had already founded an advertising agency, he was working with different brands.
But, for an ambitious person, it’s never enough and he wanted more and more. Accordingly, he went to Dubai for a project. He posted on Instagram some of the project pictures, which had a great impact on the public. From here, Dmitry received a lot of projects and work proposals. There were many people who wanted a photo shooting in Moscow. Before going to Novosibirsk, he decided to stay for some days in Moscow. His success was so marvelous here, that he decided to remain.
Here, in Moscow, he makes an interesting, creative photo shooting with Viktoriya Korotkova- a Russian model, known from the reality show Holostyak. Calvin Klein posted the pictures from this shooting on their official account. By the way, these photos were much more liked, than the photos with Justin Bieber, posted on CK account too.
The next important collaboration was with Anastasiya Reshetova. He may consider himself a family photographer for Anastasia and Timur as they collaborate for such a long time, for the most important events of their family life.
