Smigallery is a space that presents the opportunity to cover various areas, using photography.

The Smigallery creative group was founded in 2004 by Elena Smirnova, an artist and photographer whose works are found in the private interiors of politicians, artists, photography enthusiasts and close friends. Together we are developing the project, dedicated to the study and preservation of family history, its genealogy and traditions through artistic photography.

We carry out a variety of projects related to creative photography: organizing in-studio and out-of-studio shooting, developing an original concept, interior design, creating calendars. For our projects, depending on the tasks set, the gallery uses professional photographic equipment, invites a creative team: stylist, designer, decorator, artist, special effects master, etc., cooperates with various production bases, photo labs and art workshops.

We are ready to develop an original, creative idea for you and start implementing it!
