Andrei Duman is an award winning commercial, conceptual, travel 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.
He got his start in photography while touring internationally as a semi-professional tennis player, before moving on to a 12 year investment banking career. He has visited 82 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, shooting on the world's largest camera sensor - the XF IQ3 Trichromatic (101 Mega Pixels) and IQ4 (150 Mega Pixels) as well as a Global Brand Ambassador to Eizo Monitors. He has had his work featured in National Geographic, The Guardian Travel and The Weather Channel to name a few. His clients include Nike, McLaren Cars, Richard Mille Watches, The Four Seasons Hotel Chain, The Tony Hawk Foundation and G-Technology to name a few.
Duman’s work is disciplined and driven by his passion to push boundaries with regards to what is possible with photography. His shoot concepts are usually complex with incredible attention to detail, all the while staying authentic to his ultimate vision. His photos are clean, technical, 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.
