My name is Elena Ermakova. I am an independent travel photographer. 
Travel photography is my passion. I love to discover new places: their colors, lines, flavors, smells, sounds, architecture and cultural traditions, and love to share them through my lens.
My photos were chosen by such popular publishers as Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveller UK, Dorling Kindersley, World Traveler (UAE), Mabuhay (Philippines), Ritz-Carlton, UNESCO Publishing, and others.
