Ilya Nodia is a Photography & CG Art Director. Interaction and collaboration with the best people in the visual industry allow him to participate in the most incredible commercial projects, and to find the best visual solutions for advertising companies, organizations, and art projects:
- My path began in 2008 with photography. I chose the way of exhausting practice and improving my technical skills every day through the personal artistic and commercial projects for the small business entrepreneurs, which, many years later, helped me enter the big agency advertising and become a responsible professional with high quality of service, personal approach to each client and a good reputation in the industry.
From 2014 to 2017 I worked as a lead photographer in the escape game franchise Claustrophobia. The creation of advertising photos for every project for this company brought me success in the commercial photography industry. Made more than 120 projects shooting for Claustrophobia in different countries around the world.
Since 2015 became a resident of the Fun’Da’Mental Agency.
From 2016 to 2018 are a huge number of commercial advertising projects, movie posters, performances, and theaters in collaboration with BBDO Moscow, Leo Burnette, Fetish Film, Hype Production, and others.
In 2018 I moved and officially worked in California for WLA Entertainment Inc., where I shoot projects in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, making a lot of commercial and personal projects.
From 2019 to 2021 I worked as a photography and video Art Director in WayRay AG.
Since 2021 Creative Leader and Art Director of the Ambition CG Team.
Now I am collaborating with several design and CG studios and continue to direct advertising projects in photography and CG.
