I am a photographer, filmmaker, writer and creative consultant. Wherever I am, I have a camera with me. My aim is to capture beautiful scenes, details, colors, shapes and sometimes portraits, too.
I don't consider myself a specific kind of photographer. I love working in the studio and I also like being outside. Each kind of work has its particular appeal to me. I'll tell you one thing I am not: I am not an event photographer; weddings and parties aren't for me. I'm an introvert and I prefer to be by myself or with just a few people around.
I found my passion for photography while I was in college, sometime in 1995. Back then, I shot on APS film. In the early 2000s, I switched to digital cameras and my first proper camera was an Olympus Camedia C-3000 Zoom. I then got a Camedia C-770 UZ, which I still own and is still functional. I upgraded to a DSLR in 2007 and nowadays I work with mirrorless cameras. I love PEN cameras and I own the E-P1, E-P2, E-PL1, E-P3 and the E-P5, which I adore. I plan to get the PEN-F as well, and I'd love to be able to get the E-M1 Mark II. As long as I'm listing my wishes, I'd love to get the E-M5 Mark II and the E-M10 Mark III. I love every single one of them. Every now and then I'll shoot a roll of film but I am definitely a digital photographer.
When it comes to photography and filmmaking I am entirely self-taught, but I welcome any worthwhile chance to learn and improve. I've read articles, watched videos and taken online courses on these subjects. Most of all, I used my cameras a whole lot and learned through trial and error. I also make it a point to read through the user manuals for my cameras and lenses, repeatedly when necessary.
I am a published photographer and my work has appeared in ten printed books and one e-book, as well as numerous media publications and on various TV news segments. Framed prints of my photographs are hanging on quite a few walls. I am grateful that my work is enjoyed by so many people and I love that they appreciate the beauty I capture in my photographs.
As a filmmaker, I am responsible for the following web shows: "Ligia's Kitchen" (winner of the YouTube Next Chef Award), "De Vorba cu Ligia" and "Romania Through Their Eyes". I also publish a variety of other videos on my YouTube channel.
I studied literature, writing, art and architecture in college. I then earned a master's of healthcare administration (it's like an MBA but for healthcare) and I focused my career on IT, working in management. At one time I was also an officer in the US Army and served in Washington, DC.
Nowadays my wife and I run our own lifestyle company through which we promote healthy foods and healthy living. We chose to live in Transilvania, Romania. My wife is a prolific, published author. Her name is Ligia. We have been blessed with a wonderful girl named Sophie.
I've been online since 1995 and have had a personal website since 2000, where I publish photos and various articles. I'm also on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
