My portfolio today contains hundreds of wedding projects, fashion, business or family photography made for a variety of private and corporate clients and partners. My language skills in French, English, Romanian and Russian allowed me to acquire customers from different backgrounds and communities. Graduate of several higher education institutions, I got the Photography Academy diploma in the work field, the only way of learning how to draw with light, how to understand the shutter speed, how to experiment with color science and image development technology. Working in the field provided me with a unique chance to create one great team with the person in front of the camera.
For me, photography was and always will be a magical act in itself. It is a kind of a refuge from reality, although the photographer remains the most devoted chronicler of the moment. I take on the role of a chronicler and less that of an actor in our society. Together with the person in front of the camera, I feel I can leave marks in time. That is why, I build my relationships with customers on team work, mutually beneficial collaboration and artistic passion and not on cold pragmatism or pecuniary interests.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I would like to present the human aspect of the wedding projects. During a full day of marriage I can develop in ongoing process my ability to relate with the people, from groom grandmother who never posed in front of the cameras to the bride's brother, who at the age of 6 years is hard to catch him for the familly shooting.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
There are photographers who participate in competitions, photographers who teach photography and photographers who produce photography. I prefer to produce photography. Although there were dozens of invitations to submit my work for various contests and to organize training courses for beginning photographers, I declined them every time. I have always chosen and still conscientiously choose to produce photography. For me, the best honor and recognition is the 99.9% customer satisfaction I normally receive for the work delivered.
