If you are looking for a great way to celebrate your event, you’ve come to the right place! DJ Pushkin was officially recognized as Industry's top Russian-American Wedding DJ by Martha Stewart's Wedding Magazine at her Wedding Salon Showcase.
DJ Pushkin is often handpicked to spin at events that feature Russian, American, and International Celebrities, many of who invite DJ Pushkin to play at their own private parties. Here are some photos from DJ Pushkin's past events.
You may have noticed light Photoshop work on couple of the images. The only modification made was a change of background to make some photos look more colorful. The photos themselves are all real 🙂
DJ Pushkin specializes in providing Russian, American, and International music for your Wedding, Birthday Celebration, Corporate/Private Party, Sweet 16, Bar/Bat Mitzvah… DJ Pushkin’s wide variety of music will accommodate your whole family.

One of the most interesting and unique services that DJ Pushkin provides is a State of Art Audio/Video/Lighting solution. Here is a small article with pictures describing this package. Do you see how beautiful and party-like the room looks? This atmosphere helps you and your guests to celebrate in style, party like there is no tomorrow, and remember this night for many years to come.
If you look closely, you will see 2 plasma screens hanging on the truss. The coolest part about using Plasmas or Projectors is that you can play your personal slideshow and home video mixed with animated graphics and effects. DJ Pushkin uses a separate laptop (from his music one) witch runs a professional VJ software. This software works like a digital video mixer, allowing to mix images, videos, and effects together with external sources like Photo and Video Cameras. Just imagine your guests on the dancefloor looking up at the TV screen/s and seeing a live video of themselves dancing. This video would not just play as is. That would be too boring. The video would be mixed with effects that would correspond with the lighting environment in the room at any given moment.

At this particular moment DJ Pushkin was playing 2 layers of video from his laptop. One layer is a virtual reality video loop with effects, and the second layer is text which can be modified on the fly. With just a press of a button (imagine) DJ Pushkin switches to live video of something interesting or funny happening on the dancefloor. Another click, and you are watching a slide show of photos that were taken just a few minutes ago by the photographer at your party, who is also provided in DJ Pushkin's visual package. In the middle of the night, we use these Plasmas to play a 10 minute video that was shot about a week before your party with the sole purpose to premiere tonight for your loved ones.
The photographer provided in the package is a professional photographer with one of the best camera's on the market. (Usually Canon 1Ds Mark III, 5D Mark II or Nikon D3, D300)
If you like the photo album service that DJ Pushkin provides, you will love the video service, as it is at same high quality and affordable price. DJ Pushkin will only use his tested camera operators (for both Photo & Video) so that your footage looks crisp and beautiful. Everything is shot with professional video cameras.
The camera operators come to the party in advance to set up lighting for video. They usually bring 3 light fixtures with umbrellas to soften the light. These fixtures work on a remote control and are turned off when not in use. Most videographers shoot in Standard Definition. However, DJ Pushkin's videographers shoot High Definition. The resolution of all current TVs is 1920 by 1080 pixels. There is no reason getting your video shot in standard resolution 640 by 480 pixels and stretching it out like a pizza pie when viewing on your new LCD or Plasma. DJ Pushkin article about BluRay DVDs. When using DJ Pushkin's Video Service, your DVDs will look fresh even 20 years from now. DJ Pushkin edits all videos himself for guaranteed results. You can rest assured that your digital media will be captured professionally, and in style. Your Photo Albums and DVDs will stand out from all those other boring services.
Where do DJ Pushkin's multimedia expertise come from? For the past 2 years DJ Pushkin worked at B&H Photo and Video. He was hired as Multimedia Consultant. His job was to go to clients' houses and offices, help them put together home theater systems, and manage a team of installers to make sure everything worked properly. After about a year in that position, DJ Pushkin transferred to the Video Production Department. DJ Pushkin loved editing video. He learned video editing when he edited his own footage from his club nights. Therefore, he passed the Final Cut Pro test with ease and was successfully transferred to a professional video production studio at B&H executive offices. There DJ Pushkin learned about all the currant HD Video technologies like HD Cameras, Lenses, Codecs, Storage devices, and Workflows. He also learned how to set up lighting, prepare a script, and produce a professional video podcast. All Wedding (and professional) photographers and videographers buy their gear at B&H. Most of them would come to DJ Pushkin's department once per week asking for advices 🙂 DJ Pushkin had to resign from B&H recently because having a full time job conflicted with his business.
Here are some photos from DJ Pushkin's B&H days.
