With a degree in geophysics and a career in software engineering, Andrei discovered his passion for photography during a trip to the American West. It was the summer of 2000 when Andrei took his brand new Kodak 5 Megapixel digital camera on a 3 week trip through some of the most famous National Parks of the West. It was great to discover all those natural wonders, but it was just as great being able to share his best images with friends and family! From that moment on, photography became Andrei's passion and took over most of his free time.
Trips to all corners of the American Southwest followed, as well as yearly trips to Europe that continue today. Discovering new places, people and customs is Andrei's main focus on his trips.
Some of his best photos are frequently selected as "photo of the day" by prestigious websites such as Arizona Highways and National Geographic.
Andrei's self portrait photo was published in the print edition of the National Geographic magazine all over the world. Another spectacular photo of his was featured in Popular Photo magazine, a widely distributed magazine in the US. More recently, a photo of Gila River Indian Reservation wild horses appeared in the print edition of Phoenix Magazine.
