Denis Sinyakov, 1977, Moscow/Stockholm based freelance photographer/videographer.
My photography experience includes four years at Agence France Press (2003-2007) and five years at Reuters (2007-2012), both in Moscow, and nearly three years of freelance work as a photographer and a videographer.
I've been working for Der Spiegel magazine, NYT, Helsingin Sanomat, Liberation, Newsweek, CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera, GEO, Vokrug Sveta, TV Rain, Meduza, and other media, Redux and Cosmos agencies, Greenpeace Int and other NGOs.
Working as an agency's staff photographer I covered numerous Russian and International news and feature stories. I have worked on such vital topics as mass killing of civil population in Andizhan, Uzbekistan (2005), IslaeliLebanese war (2006), Kurdish conflict in Turkey (2007), Russian Georgian war (2008) and ISAAF operation in Afghanistan (2010, 2011).
I became a freelance photojournalist in July 2012.
For a long time I've been paying special attention to social and environmental issues with a focus on Arctic region.
