I have no idea who Pavel Birukov is but this is obviously a picture take by him. I found this picture searching for high heels on Bing but the picture says Pavel Birukov in the part of the picture to the right that I cropped off to centre the model more.
Christine did a google for Pavel and found his site. The second picture below is the front page of Pavel's site and the image links to his site. It looks interesting and I will have to have a look at it one day. I have bookmarked it.
