Freelance photographer based in London. Currently I freelance for the Guardian and National Geographic Traveller UK.
I was born in Romania and currently I am based in London, United Kingdom. I have always had the curiosity to discover new places and to meet people from all around the world. Therefore, England was the best choice, as I have the opportunity to meet interesting people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
I am a determined, creative and result-oriented individual with a highly acclaimed reputation for producing superior, high quality imagery and recognised with numerous awards such as Sony Awards, Youth Category 2013, Getty Images and SCA Academy Photography Competition 2014 and National Geographic Traveller 2015.
After studying photography at an undergraduate level at the University of Portsmouth, graduating in 2014 with First Class Honours Degree, I planned on advancing on a particular area such as documentary photography and photojournalism by applying for a postgraduate degree at the University of Westminster where I have been accepted and awarded with the Photographic & Digital Media Scholarship. In 2015 I was happy to be graduate with distinction.
For as long as I can remember I have known what I wanted to do with my life. Since I first discovered the camera, I knew that I found my niche. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and journalism in particular has interested me for some time. Discovering new stories and capturing candid moments, are very appealing to me. For me, photography has been a fantastic way to grow up faster and get to know myself.
