A simple Romanian photography hobbyist, became internationally renowed after winning the first edition of Microsoft's Future Pro Photographer contest in 2006.

He achieved this just one short year after his first foray into photography. His winning photo, Slalom, was chosen winner by industry leading professionals from over thirteen thousand entries!

This was the catalyst for the inner artist trapped within him. Since then he has added many other national and international photography contest wins to his portfolio.

In his home-country he is most appreciated for his on-going project "World Seen Differently." All photographs from this project are shot in Infrared with a custom modified digital camera.
