Church from epoch of Peter I

Church from epoch of Peter I

The church of the Blessed Virgin's Birth in Podmoklovo is one of the most interesting erections of Peter's epoch that is the incarnation of west-European baroque features. A brick church delivered on the high bank of Oka represents a bivaulted rotunda covered by a high dome and accomplished by a light drum. Massive cylindrical volume of the church is surrounded by an opened arcade, connected with it by a system of groined vaults. The figures of 12 apostles and 4 evangelists are set on the axes of the arcade's pylons over the cornice on the high pedestals of the crowning balustrade. church is one of the earliest ones that came out till now from the whole first half of XVIII century rotundas. The author of the project is unknown, but he is the Italian architect Carlo Fontano by some suppositions.

I am currently working with my repeat client from Canada, Annie Budz, who came to Moscow on her vacation again, now with her sister younger Irina to discover more interesting sites in Moscow and its Region during two weeks (10-23 of May). Because of very bad traffic during workdays we as usual go out of the city from Monday to Friday and spend weekends in Moscow city. Annie likes very much Russian church architecture and we are taking a lot of pictures everyday...



Today is my Birthday, May 14th, and I decided due to this event to share one of the Best pictures of this Day on my website (see my news).

Hope you like... Cheers!

As a Photographer based in US for long time, I was looking for a very Professional college in Moscow that can provide me the "secret" places or as we know in photography, the Key points of the BEST POV (Point of View) for each photo we can get.

I did my research very well before I travel to Moscow and St. Pet during the month of May 2017.

I have to say that I love Night city view Photography; and after my research, I could not make a better decision than contact Arthur as my Photo tour guide.
Since the very beginning when I get in contact with Arthur, He was very helpful in all matters including the easy way to make deposit payment etc.

The best part came when I arrive to Moscow and after a nice dinner with my wife, He offered to pick me up any where I need to.

I can say that for sure not many people know the city and the best Points Of View of Moscow as Arthur does.

We started the city tour during the "magic hour" at dusk and from there on, EVERY place He showed to us was better and better. I can say that I came back to US, with a LOT of Great Photographs thanks to Arthur.
Those places could not be found (or covered) by my self in the same period of time we did.
There is no way to move in Moscow at night using public transportation and cover the many places we did cover during this GREAT tour with Him.

Arthur, thank you very much for your VERY professional Photo Tour. For sure, in future visits to Moscow, I know I do have a friend and a very professional tour guide for us ...
