Nina Platonova

Tampa Bay Photographer


I am Nina. Even as a child, I took a camera and photographed the environment, not being afraid to spend the treasured shots on film without capturing myself in them. Mom once gave me her camera on a trip, and was very surprised that I was not in the photographs. Instead, she saw everything that I really liked.

I really love to observe life and photography helps me show my way of looking at things. When I'm invited to photograph an event or workshop, I notice that often each of us has some beautiful repetitive movements, like character. Body language tells us a story. Love, happiness, thoughts appear like flashes in body movements.

I love portraits of people. More often than not, I ask you to think about something specific. Then a sparkle appears in your eyes, which shows your mood, like the water of a spring lake. It's so funny. If you are not thinking about anything, then the portrait does not turn out so expressive.

Here's what I love in life: I love my patient husband, with whom we have been together for over 15 years. I love happy, good people. I like to travel. I love Asian food. I don't eat meat and I don't drink alcohol. I love a clean house. And I love taking pictures!

I try to get a great mix of staged and candid portraits with a relaxed, comfortable feel.
