I was born in Oradea on the 9th of April, 1973. I have been a photographer for over 20 years. I prefer portraits, nudes, aerial and street photography. I had managed to issue seven illustrated editions of the Bihor County monography, which contain about 1.000 photographs, illustrating the most representative sites in the county. I also issued six editions of the Travel Guide Book of Bihor County, two editions of the Oradea Mea album, Comitatus Bihoriensys album, many postcards, pocket books, which reflect his photographic activity.
In 2013 my photographic activity took a turn towards artistic photography and I managed to become a EAAFR (The Association of Romanian Artist Photographers) artist and E.FIAP/s artist (Excellence of the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique), managing to obtain 764 prizes (185 gold medals/1st place/trophies) in 61 countries like Andorra, Albania, Austria, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Dominica, Egypt, Emirates, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Lithuania, Macao, Macedonia, Montenegro, Nepal, Norway, Oman, Panama, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Ukraine and USA.
