Photographer of the week: Viktor Lyagushkin

Our photographer of the week is Viktor Lyagushkin – an astonishing cave and underwater photographer from Russia.

Viktor has dreams of finding a dragon. A real one – alive, fiery, and rattling its scales with each step. He himself concedes totally different reasons for taking up cave diving as a hobby, but they are only partly true.
He is no madman. He knows that times have changed, and dragons have disappeared forever. But a dragon might still possibly survive in some remote, lonely cave! Perhaps, he already has, but does not tell.

Viktor is a National Geographic photographer, official Nikon photographer, Subal Team Pro photographer, winner of many international photo contests, his exhibitions were held in many cities of Europe and America.
He is also an NAUI Instructor, a journalist, a designer, a professional underwater photographer, and winner of international photo competitions.

Sadly, I only get to feature 10 of his selected work – You can check the full collection on his website and get in touch with him via Facebook.

  • These are awesome. Really great water image set.

    Your pictures simply come alive. I really have no other words to describe them. In a world of post processing which allows people to create an environment which does not exist.. I am reminded that to really capture a great moment you have to go places where greatness happens. As a professional Photography myself I’m inspired.

    Out of the world’s 8650 species of birds
    more than 1230 are available in india. With subspecies included
    it may double the total number. Indian region with variety
    of climate and habitat zones (from sea level to Himalayan
    Everest peak ( Sagarmath in Nepali ), from deserts to rain
    forests) provide lot of food and shelter whole year in the
    shape of plant and insect growth which is main source of
    survival for avians. These features make India the paradise
    for bird watchers, and naturalists. Several thousand Kilometers
    of coastline and small to medium village tanks, riverbeds,
    jheels or bheels in Assam, unnatural dam created jheels
    all provide most suitable habitats for waterbirds…
