Shiny Sabres and Golden Domes

Shiny Sabres and Golden Domes

Any photographer knows that it is not so easy to take excellent picture to memorize important event, to show an atmosphere of fascinating action, especially, if it takes place in a big city and many people as you intend to watch the show and take some photos. Therefore, it is very important to think in advance about the spots for photo shooting and book a most suitable place where it will be the best coverage the area of upcoming event. From my practice I know and hope you agreed with my thoughts that to stake a great spot for photo shooting is not enough and your success will depend on weather conditions, on your skills as photographer and in most of cases - just on a luck!

I like this picture very much and I can say that I proud that I had a luck to make this excellent shot at the beginning of Guards Mounting ceremony in Moscow Kremlin at noon on Saturday 1st, October 2005. I was working in that time with my repeat client Annie Budz, tourist from Canada, who used my services 3 times from 2005 to 2007 and each time she stayed about 2 weeks in Moscow… Ok, back to the guards.. :-)…

On this picture, with background of the great architectural ensemble of Moscow Kremlin with shining onion golden domes on the top of Terem Palace, you can see a great action when the marching soldiers with shiny sabres (look at their high step!) are bringing Russian Military Standards into the Cathedral's Square.

With BEST Regards,

My husband and I used Arthur's professional services on our first-ever trip to Moscow; during our adoption process. He took us to all the popular tourist destinations...The Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM and along Old Arabat Street for good bargain shopping. On the way to the airport, we treated him at his favorite Russian pub. We got to try new Russian foods which were all fantastic! He is very knowledgeable about his city and explains the history to his clients with confidence and pride. If it wouldn't have been for Arthur we would not have seen Moscow the way we did! During our second trip to finalize the adoption of our baby boy we did not have the extra time for sightseeing and besides, Arthur was already booked with other clients so we did not get to see him. We were saddened, because we truly felt we'd met a friend! But living up to his expectations, Arthur called our hotel room "just to say hello and best wishes to our new family". What a fantastic guy! One thing that stands out about Arthur is his professionalism and the way he carries himself with confidence, and he is by far the best English-speaking Russian we met! We highly recommend Arthur's services with the guarantee of a memorable experience. One day, we hope to cross paths with Arthur again!! The McPike Family.
