Andrei Duman is an aerial, landscape, wildlife and travel photographer based in Los Angeles, California. Born in Romania and raised in England, Andrei has always seen the world through compositions; as a child he imagined how he would frame every animal he encountered. His passion for photography continued to grow when he began traveling the world with his early tennis career and furthermore during the vacations allowed in his financial career. This inspired him to turn his adoration of capturing the unique corners of the globe into a business. Andrei began photographing with simple “point and shoot” cameras in 2000. He developed his niche in the photography world by photographing whenever possible, finding people, places and animals that are unique and represent the remote parts of the world he visits. Now Andrei shoots with more intention, deciding on the most effective lenses and camera settings to capture the pulse and spirit of his subjects. While there is a wide range of styles in Andrei’s body of work, he has always had an affinity for abstract photographs. A life-long fan of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, Andrei loves the idea of an un-manipulated image that seems surreal or abstract because of its composition, most notable in his aerial landscape photography. His attention to lines, shapes and hues in his images also give ordinary subject matter a fresh perspective. Today, Andrei ventures to less explored corners of the world, hoping to give a voice to secluded cultures, wildlife and landscapes. His goal as a photographer is to share his unique vision of the world, hoping to make people have a more personal connection to their natural surroundings. In his ten years of photographing, Andrei has had his images published in numerous publications including Business Insider, National Geographic “Greatest Landscapes”, Readers Digest, Shutterbug Photography Magazine, The Daily Mail and Bing.com as well as have it be displayed at establishments such as The Annenberg Space for Photography, Los Angeles, Iris Gallery, Aspen and The Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai, China. In 2015 he opened his first gallery featuring his work in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles.
