When and how do you start to create?

I have been interested in photography for many years. My childhood related to film photography as I used to help my father with it, my involvement being an indirect one.

Do you went to an art school or self-taught?

One morning I just decided to buy a DSLR camera-Nikon D90. It happened in one moment of inspiration like when you suddenly decide to quit smoking (not my case yet). What lead to that moment was a sequence of events, but I remember the magical morning in the mountains with my friends and that I wished to have a camera to capture what I saw and what I loved on the mountains. This is the way it all started, this is how I started to love photography, this is how the passion was born. After about a month I took an intensive training in photographic art. It lasted several months in Bucharest 2011.

How do you learn and work your skill?

My everyday life revolved around photographic art, either by reading about composition and style, attending workshops, going outdoors to take photos, or being an active member of the local photo club Floarea de Colț.

What do you like in this art, your motivation?

My photographic vision could be summarized in one phrase: bits of everyday life that we pass by without giving them any importance, instances that are sweet reminders of the past. Perhaps this is the reason I am so attracted to street and everyday photography.

What are your favourite subject(s)?

People!

How do you prepare a creation or project work?

Obviously, one cannot prepare to the last detail a street and everyday photo. It depends on observation, anticipation, luck and some experience, the most important factor is often luck. You can plan for the sun’s position (the light at different times of the day and seasons) and you need to have the patience to wait for something to happen in your frame. I very much like to shoot street in foggy conditions. I simply adore it.

What are your most representative creations, and why? (links)

My favourite photo is ”Our childhood”, published here on 1x. It tells the story of children waiting for something good to happen, but with a doubting expression in their eyes. Looking at this photo makes my eyes teary sometimes...https://1x.com/photo/483251/latest:user:101951

Who are artists that fascinate or give you inspiration? (links)

The most important photographers to me that influenced my vision are: Patrick Demarchelier, Brassai (born in Romania), Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Capa and the list could go on, also many photographers from the 1x community. Looking at their photos not only inspires me but also stimulates me to go shoot…

What equipment and/or technic do you use?

As I said I started with a Nikon D90 using several lens 11-16/35/50/105/16,5-135mm. In the last year I had the opportunity to switch to a full frame camera, a Canon 1DsMark III, using just one lens for now, a Canon EF 70-200mm f2,8L IS II USM. By the end of the year I hope to get a second lens in order to cover a wider focal length. I work on a 23 inches Dell monitor/ display (color!!) and I use Adobe photoshop CS6 and Nik software.

What was the best advice given to you as an artist?

The most important advice I could give to a beginner in street and everyday photography is to love people.
