“I first fell in love with the mechanics of photography through learning and doing. Only after mastering the technical basics did I fall in love with the medium, taking pictures of all that I could see.
My turning point was when I worked as a portrait photographer on the largest cruise ship in the world, the Oasis of the Seas. That’s when I got hooked on portrait photography, almost 10 years ago. Coming back to Romania after living “the American dream” I started working as a portrait photographer. This opportunity allowed me to work on some personal projects and discover amazingly talented people. I have been truly blessed to have been able to work with magazines and agencies, photographing regularly people and celebrities alike, meeting new people every day and trying to capture their beauty.
