Polina Zakharova is a Russian-born photographer and a video creator.  
After receiving her Bachelor's Degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in Film, Polina pursued her career in New York. She worked as an editor on weekdays and a cinematographer on the weekends, gaining a well-rounded film production experience. 
During the coronavirus lockdown, Polina co-founded an online learning platform Filmmaker Essentials. Around that same time, she traveled across the country, driving through 12 states, camping out in national parks, and proudly making coffee on a portable stove (pictured on the right).

Polina is now based in Los Angeles, and takes on projects both in LA and New York.
