Iuri Schimanski is pronounced like YUU-ree SHI-man-skee, not to be confused with Luri. Which happens very often in his life, entertainingly so.
Iuri has been making photos since his early teen years. He started with a Nikon N65 film camera, and quickly moved onto digital. Digital meant having a point-and-shoot to carry around at a young age. Then in his early 20's he picked up a digital DSLR, the beautiful Nikon D90. After five years he moved on to a Fujifilm X100, which got amazing results. Now he's onto the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
Through his college days he has taken numerous photography courses while getting his Bachelors of Science in Computer Science. He currently works full-time as a Linux Administrator at Northeastern University, and part-time live video production sports games, as well as freelance photography. Iuri has 8+ years of live video production experience. He has worked as broadcast switcher, replay assistant, and camera-man. His video broadcasts include Northeastern University Athletics, Harvard University Athletics, Boston Cannons, and Boston Breakers. He continues to improve his process through practice, and multiple college level digital media courses.
