Kirill was born near Moscow and from an early childhood he preferred learning through his personal experience rather than theory. Spending most of his time outdoors, walking the streets of Moscow and travelling abroad, he developed his visual language. During his time in school, Kirill was very much into sports and he became a DOP while searching for means of self-expression. Together with his friend they began filming everywhere they went: parties, events, hang-outs. Realising how much he enjoyed it, Kirill entered professional circles with ease and began working with young directors, improving his skills. Constant self-growth is most important to Kirill, as well as his search for extraordinary beauty in most usual things.
