Infra Red

Roxana came to me saying she wants me to capture her beauty “because we will never be as young and beautiful as we are today” And she is so right :)

Rebel Rose

Andreea came from Bucharest to Cluj because she wanted a photo-session with me and a new tattoo with (my own and favorite tattoo artist) Marius Iacoban from BasTattoo.
Searching for a location I found this incredible abandoned building, full of graffiti and interesting windows which turned out to be perfect for the photo shoot we planned.

Retrenchment trend. Cartoon

Hello everyone!

Oana Ianuli is an actress that I’ve meet briefly two years ago year when she was still in college. Now she lives in (the awesome) London :) She wanted some picture made by a Romanian photographer, for her blog so she contacted me to tell me that she want’s to commission me for a photo-session…and when she told me she want’s a session in the towns oldest cemetery I immediately said Yes!! I wanted from some time to do a shoot in that cemetery but I needed the perfect model(s) and concept. Oana was happy to hear my ideas for this location/shoot and we ended up with a mix that pleased us both.

Alassios history

Hello everyone :)

In my summer holiday this year I’ve spent some time in Alassio a small but extremely beautiful sea city from Italy. I immediately fell in love with the old architecture , small streets and most of all… door handlers.  So I decided to definitely capture as much as I posible could form this towns beauty.

Here is my small collection of magical door handlers  :) form Alassion…. and one day they will be a part of a large project that I’ve decided to do.

Pin-up girl

Hello my friends!

Long time no see :)
Well, my beloved autumn is here and a new post from me too!
I present you the Pin-up session with Pamela. It was a very quick but well organized session. Pamela is the perfect model for pin-up’s. We had a great time and we did an awesome job :)) Right?

Pin-up is the idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like and became an instant hit back in the days.
Many pin-ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.’s during World War II.
