Rising Stars: Meet Tasha Razzhigaeva

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tasha Razzhigaeva.

Hi Tasha, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I became interested in photography when I was still a teenager. At first, it was a hobby. I photographed myself and my friends with a simple digital camera. Eventually, I realized that this is what I want to do in life. I tried myself in different genres of photography, but my soul always aspired to photograph women. Perhaps Vogue influenced me, issues of which I cut into parts and made huge collages, which then covered wall in my room. I believe that all women are beautiful and unique, I have always wanted to show this through my work. I studied photography professionally, opened my own photo studio in my hometown on the other side of the world, worked with magazines, modeling agencies and women all around me. At some point, I realized that I really want to change everything, dream big and when to do it if not now. Unfortunately, the covid 19 pandemic made some changes to my plans, but here I am, I moved to the USA, to Los Angeles.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It’s hard for me to judge was it a rough way or not really, It took work over the years (I really can’t count how many photoshoots I’ve done over the years) and self-belief in the end)) Some people will think that’s impossible to come here from where I came from.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a photographer, doing woman portraits, fashion and model tests. I love my portrait work because I always strike to find something unique in everyone I have a chance to put in front of my camera. What am I most proud of? The next picture I will take) I just love what I do

What were you like growing up?
I was quite shy with strangers growing up but blossomed with friends and family. I took dance classes but really never liked it that much. I always wanted to draw like my sister, but I have no talent for that and maybe photography is my way to draw with the light. My grandfather loved photography, it was his lifelong hobby, he took me to the dark room with him sometimes and I still remember the magic of the print.
