About Me

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 

Everyone hello, my name is Yuri. The birth of my creative work started not too long ago, in the early 2000s, in the era of VHS and digital 8. Experimenting with creativity which went from hobby to a professional job I enjoy. 

In 2002, as a University student, I started working at a local studio on the side where I gained much of my technical knowledge and Experience. Officially hired on in 2003, I was in charge of video-operations and video-editing. 

In 2006 I became a videographer for a local TV station. While working on TV I was inspired to build my own studio, Artlook, where I can put my creativity to use.


Thank you for playing a role in my journey and I'm looking forward to a bright future. 


  It’s good to know you would like to know who I am! Because by the end of your wedding day we will possible become good friends! My name is Yurii, a simple guy who moved to the United States couple of years ago and decided not to drop his favorite stuff which is just making videos for everyone, including you and myself.

  Videomaking is truly my passion. Even if I’m not “on duty” or traveling somewhere, I usually have my camera with me and I can make something interesting.That’s a good habit, because it helps me to develop my skills constantly

  Is there anything else I can tell about myself… Well I don’t know, I’m 42, i have a family, creative, determined, etc.Let my deeds and work speak of me.See you!.
