ABOUT ME

about-me

Welcome to my world,

As an experienced international photographer from Ukraine who specializes in wedding, family and children photography and has spent many years working around Europe, I am now happy to call Chicago home. I offer my services for your special and most important day.

My name is Ivan Gloshchaniuk. I’m 29. I have experience 8 years like a photographer and editor. I’m a curious and restless person. I’m into exotic food, music from around the globe, traveling to interesting places, fishing, chocolate and of course photography.

I travelled for years, and during my travels I found two of the most important things in my life: my wife, and photography. I decided to keep both of them close for the rest of my life. Svitlana is always with me. We work together and complement each other.

While I studied, I shot a few weddings. I did them for next to nothing, for experience. My clients were happy. I looked around and realized that I could do a better job than my competitors. I didn’t raise my prices, but instead I shot dozens more weddings. I wanted to improve, and to learn. I studied the best wedding photographers in the world, I bought the best equipment. I got better.

During 2 years I was a member of the photo department team aboard the cruise ship. I shot special events, weddings and private parties footage.

I’ve now shot more than 200 weddings and a lot of different photo shoots (maternity, family, individual, children, christening etc.) I’m still learning, and hopefully always will be.

I have decided to expand my team. And now I have an assistant, one more photographer to help me and also the videographer.

I have much fun working with people, capturing moments and emotions, seeing the look on their faces when they see their own portrait and actually like what they see. That’s why I edit pictures, videos and make photo books by myself. I  spend way too much time editing, but  I like want I do.

If all that sounds good to you, complete my inquiry form and I’ll let you know if I’m free to your amazing day. Ask anything you like, I’d love to meet you for a chat and bring my sample album so you can see some of my work in print.

Looking forward to working with you and I hope you enjoy my work.

SEE YOU
