melbourne music photographer ⌁ TANYA VOLTCHANSKAYA

I am a wanderer that loves documenting authenticity - from the energy of live music to the quieter, genuine moments of people in love. 

Based in Melbourne, I believe I can deliver something a little bit different in a time where it’s so hard to pick a photographer.

For more information regarding a session, or to just say hello, feel free to get in touch. If I'm a road trip or a flight away, I'll offer a deal!
