Born in Baku, Azerbaijan Dina moved to United States at a young age and immediately found a medium through which she would communicate and tell stories - photography.
After earning a bachelor's degree in fine art photography at Mass. College of Art, Dina became a freelance photographer shooting high- end events and contributing fashion stories to many online and print publications.
A love of photographing the “essence” of each subject who sat in front of her camera, led her to become a much sought after photographer for discerning actors, models and business clients, seeking more than just a headshot.
Dina has had the privilege of photographing an array of celebrities including: Sting, Andy Cohen, En Vogue, Snoop Dog, Giuliana Rancic, Tom Brady, and The New England Patriots.
Dina's commercial clients include: Dell; Sika; 360 PR; WCVB TV 5; Fairway Mortgage, Coast Productions, Goodwin PR Group, Catania Oils, Moira Studios, KEZI Jewelry, and JJ Media
Dina's fashion work has been described as bold and dramatic, as well as quiet and romantic. She thrives on collaborating with clients and talent and is in her element whether she is shooting a simply composed portrait or an elaborate, narrative driven scene.
A creative visionary, Dina is able to conceive an image and execute using color and light as her key creative tools, and choosing and directing her team brilliantly in order to bring her clients idea into reality.
Her fashion, event and portrait images have been published in : The Boston Globe, Stuff, Improper Bostonian, POSE, The Knot Magazine, Exhale Magazine, Boston Common Magazine, Institute Magazine, Solis Fashion Magazine, Imagine Magazine and many other print and web publications.
Dina also finds time to create fine art photography that she proudly displays in Regional and national galleries and she hopes that her 2 sons inherit the love of art and life that she shares with the world.
