Yulia Atayeva

JULIA ATAYEVA was born in Volgograd, where she still lives. Educated as a bookkeeper, she always loved cooking, no matter how difficult the dish; the main thing is that it be tasty and beautiful. About seven years ago she became interested in food photography and is now a self-taught professional, providing her work to various photo licensing sites. She also puts her photography to good use on her popular (in Russia) food blog and Facebook group, "Ya ne umeyu khudet" (“I don’t know how to lose weight.”) She is writing a book on low-carb cooking.
