Andrei Duman is a travel, landscape and aerial photographer based in Los Angeles, California. Duman was born in Bucharest, Romania in 1982 and raised and educated in England, where he received a Masters of Science, Finance and Investment from the University of York in 2005. He then moved to New York for several years before settling in Los Angeles, where he currently lives with his wife, Susan.
Duman’s work is disciplined and driven by his passion for travel and exploration. He got his start in photography while touring internationally as a semi-professional tennis player, before moving on to investment banking. He has visited 80 countries so far, including some of the world’s most visually stunning and remote locations. He swam in Jellyfish Lake in Palau, hiked amongst the Moai statues on Easter Island, explored the local fish markets of Zanzibar, took a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara, captured the aurora borealis in Greenland and went hunting with the remote San tribesmen of Namibia, all with camera in tow. Duman is an ambassador and field instructor to Phase One Cameras.
Duman is patient, ever curious and adventurous. His passion is evident in every composition and with each new environment he challenges himself to be fully immersed in every location. Throughout his travels, he has learned to navigate unfamiliar cultures and different ways of life so he can experience each new place on his own terms. His artistic style reflects his appreciation for the natural world. His photos are clean, powerful and evocative. They encourage the viewer to look beyond what is right in front of them to the scale and breadth of what surrounds us.
