About Me

I’m a professional photographer and travel-luxury segment blogger. Currently I live between two countries – part of the time in Minsk (Belarus) and part of the time in France, in the lovely region of Burgundy.

This blog is where I document my life. I have visited more than 30 countries. And you’ll find a whole lot of travel-related content on olgamodjaro.com, and maybe is when you visit the site, you’ll also get to know me as a person.

I have a really popular russian blog countryofcheese.com. It sets up is in 2017 (before since 2013 I have a blog in livejournal.com). My passion for travel, art, design, and architecture led to this successful blog I love.

Perpetual optimist, French Châteaux and Italian pasta lover. Bag (Loewe and Chanel particular) are my weakness.

My native language is Russian. But having moved to live in France, I am becoming more international, and so I decided to start creating a blog in English. For this reason, I apologize if there are mistakes in my English .


I am a professional photographer based in France (Burgundy and Paris) and Belarus (Minsk). I’m a freelance photographer and journalist/blogger, my focuse: travel, interiors, hotels, and people’s stories, destination weddings, adventurous lifestyle and portraits.

Photography has been my great love since 2013. Over the years, I’ve captured hotels, restaurants, and resorts, traveling with travel companies to create content for social media (UAE, Spain, Mauritius, etc.). Recently, I’ve started capturing people. Photography, for me, is not just random shots; it’s a moment, a memory, a connection with the place or people I capture. I consider myself an artist. When I photograph, I pay attention to every detail: light, air, the play of light and shadow, giving my photos depth and making you feel it. If you’ve hired me (or want to hire me) as your photographer, it means we share common values and visual aesthetics.

For last eight years I were honored to work with travel-clients from many countries and with brands and Hotels.

I’m always improving and seeking to learn something new. I take numerous courses in photography, retouching, posing, design, etc. I’ve attended workshops with Belarusian and French photographers, studied modeling and posing, completed training in the luxury industry with Inside LVMH, and now I’m deeply immersed in studying interior photography.

My style and I represent a combination of nobility, elegance, and thoughtfulness. Attention to detail, ideation, coherence, modernity, aesthetics, naturalness, harmony, and uniqueness are what I strive to portray in my photos. I adore the “colonial Africa” style and the aesthetic of the book “Murder on the Orient Express.” You can also see this in my personal Instagram account and my blogs. It’s impossible to convey all of this, love it, but not live it!
