Moscow photographer Katerina Plotnikova shoots beautiful series of photographs in which a model poses with real live animals.
Almost like in a fairy tale, people can be seen pressed with wild creatures, such as foxes, deer, owls, and many others. There are even pictures of a young lady embracing a bear, which symbolizes the primal force, wild nature and intuition.
According to Katarina,a succesfull photoshoot does not depend on the size of the budget, professional models or expensive equipment. For her work she usually hires the most ordinary girls and props are often things found on her way to shooting.
She doesn’t use the help of a team of makeup artists,stylists,lighting,directors,she mostly does everything herself. All she requires are professional animal trainers and the only editor she uses is for colour correction.
