Yulia Gorbachenko was born and raised in Pryluky, in the Cherihiv region in the Ukraine. When she was twenty-one, she moved to the US to get professional experience and international exposure in marketing and advertising. During her internship she developed love for photography, which grew bigger as time went by and she now lives and works in New York which she says is the city of rhythm, drive, and passion. Her style of photography is very contemporary but still holding onto that classical touch. She is happy to live in a digital era because she uses it to her advantage by continuously experimenting during her shoots when she can. Her favourite lighting equipment to take with on a shoot is a silver beauty dish in combination with grid and when it comes to lighting she is very much an “old-school” photographer by doing her best to make all she can on the set and works really hard to make her retouchers job easier.
