About Instructor

Alex Koloskov

Commercial photographer, co-founder and teacher at Photigy.com. Instructor at KelbyOne.comUdemy.com and Skillfeed.com

I’m a mix of technicality, innovation and out of the box thinking. I love taking on technical challenges in everything I do, including photography.

As a photographer, I am completely self taught. I don’t know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don’t follow the herd, I do it my way. That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.
