Fabulous Dreamlike Photos with Real Animals by Olga Barantseva

Moscow-based photographer Olga Barantseva has built quite an oeuvre of mesmerizing imagery consisting of models posing with animals such as bears, wolves, raccoons, ostriches, owls, crocodiles, and snakes.

Barantseva, a portrait photographer, grew up loving nature and wildlife. She took up photography in 2007, and in 2012 she decided to combine her passions by photographing models with wildlife in a forest near Moscow. She also loves the vintage look and fairy tales, so you will see both in her imagery. All her portraits are captured with natural light.

Olga Barantseva says that most of the animals she photographs already regularly appear in movies and photo shoots.

“Photo sessions with animals have become quite popular,” she tells. “Almost any animal or bird, or even a reptile can be found on rent for photography and a lot of photographers use them. I’m no exception.”

“Mainly I’m interested in creative portraits,” Barantseva says. “I have an interest and passion for creative photography. The most important thing is the idea, not Photoshop.”

“It is impossible to combine the bear with other animals,” says the photographer. “The wolves can take part with the other animals in the same shot. We can also shoot combined photos with foxes, owls and ravens.”

“My love for fairy tales and faith in unicorns appeared from childhood and grows into a magical world with its own atmosphere and harmony, which I’m trying to show in my photos. I’m trying to fit the whole story in one photo.”
