Interview

Our photoclub, Asociația Bucureștiul meu drag (that’s ‘My beloved Bucharest Association’ in English) has a magazine published online. In the last edition, March 2013, I was invited to contribute with an interview and some photos, they can be read starting from page 166 in either the PDF or Flash version. It was a honor to be there with a large piece (I had some pics in previous editions too).

Advertising: event photography

If so far I flirted with event photography, this year I am getting serious in this, showing how it can be done in a professional manner. From the various types of events, from corporate to anniversaries and ceremonies, the wedding are the most important and their season is closing fast, clients should waste no time in booking the services, as soon many photographers will be fully loaded. Preparing for this year’s season, I launched a few weeks ago an event photography website targeting weddings, baptisms, anniversaries, corporate events, spectacles and such. There is also this set of posters, sampling some of my works and capabilities.

St. Patrick parade

At the first thought, one wouldn’t expect a St. Patrick parade in Bucharest, where we probably have more Irish Pubs than Irish people (or maybe this is the reason), but our city had one for the first time. And I don’t think is a bad thing, is a good opportunity to get people out from their houses, walk, listen to music, meet other people, enjoy a show. Yes, as a first edition it has some (many) flaws, but that’s to be expected. Looking forward to the next year.

There was a Romanian riverdance group, a couple of Irish music groups, but there was a serious presence of Romanian traditional dance and music groups, from Săpânța, Vaslui and Vrancea. Which probably enjoy better the local palinka over the Irish beer.

st patrick

Personally my biggest disappointment was not seeing any green beer, which I understand is an international tradition for the day. Not in Romania… fingers crossed for the following edition.

Toy Story

It looks like the small but bad wolf took control, like he owns everything.

When tired, he went for a quick nap, to return full of energy and do more rampage.

The caterpillar is not impressed.

Riddle

I am not into abstract photography, my images must have some face value, so I am putting now this riddle: can you guess what is this? Maybe even where? (hint: Bucharest)

The woman with snowdrops

Just like modern version of Dochia, the old woman selling snowdrops near Piața Unirii in this warm and sunny start of March day is a sign of the coming spring.

Some people enjoy her flowers, sold at a very low price, maybe looking for a second at the wrinkles on her face.

Some others hurry away, carrying on with their busy lives in this sunny Sunday morning.

Fuck the world

They don’t give a fuck about the world around …and they do the right thing.

Tango

This is already a tradition for orasul to get people dancing tango in the subway at the Unirii 1 station, as is a tradition for them to offer chocolate in the same place in the Martisor day every year, so guess what? Today I shoot people doing tango in the subway.

More Martisor pics

If the experience yesterday shooting Martisor sellers was less than stellar (I had one security guard come to me and ask to stop, since the market is private property, even if everything happened on he street, so I have to move to the opposite side of the market), today at Unirii it was much better.

martisor

People asked me to shoot their dog (carrying flowers in his mouth), complained about the mayor and the chaos he created, talked about photos and such.

martisor

A couple of them even asked to be shoot and offered me free flowers (snowdrops, which I had to decline as my hands were busy). Of course, it was not all perfect, I heard some mumbling they better get paid “100 Euros” for being photographed (even if I didn’t shoot them, but the flowers they sold).
