A picture is worth a thousand words, with so many natural wonders and magnificent works of art created by humans that there are times when words are superfluous. Vladislav Shurigin (Zuumy) is a photographer, content creator, and entrepreneur specializing in automotive and lifestyle photography.
Vlad currently lives in New York City, and he came to the United States when he was 4 years old from Ukraine. He has a degree in Graphic Design and has been taking photos for the last five years.
Currently, Vlad runs two businesses. First, his photography/influencer business through which he takes photos for major brands. Secondly, he created Black 11, a vehicle care product.
Vlad designed all the branding and packaging of Black 11. The brand is aimed at the high-end of the automotive industry. He spared no expense when creating the company–everything is super-premium and only the highest quality products have been used to manufacture the product in the United States.
To get into the photography industry, Vlad used his love and passion for cars as a source of motivation. In particular, he was motivated to photograph automobiles due to his passion for the construction and make of cars.
In the same way, it was this love and passion for vehicles that drove him to create his car care product.
At this point, Vlad wants people to look at him and see that he came from nothing. That he simply had a dream and never gave up and that’s how he got to where he is today.
In addition, Vlad would like his story and experience to motivate others to believe in themselves and launch their own projects.
Vlad’s next projects include the official launch of Black 11 and working to get it to be one of the most reliable car care product companies in the United States.
