Andrei Duman
"I've taken my Singh-Ray filters to some of the most extreme environments, from the harsh deserts of Namibia, the frigid cold of Iceland and the wet and humid swamps of Belize. They have always delivered exceptional results. There is no other filter I would want to have on any of my lenses and I am confident I will be using them for many years to come.”

Andrei Duman is a travel, landscape and aerial photographer based in Los Angeles, California. Born in Bucharest, Romania and raised in England, he received a Masters of Science in Finance and Investment from the University of York. He then moved to New York for several years before settling in Los Angeles, where he currently lives with his wife, Susan and their beloved Bengal cats Foo and Smash.

Andrei's work is 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, which afforded him the opportunity to travel the globe. He has visited over 70 countries so far, including many of the world’s most visually stunning and remote locations. He has swam in Jellyfish Lake in Palau, hiked amongst the Moai statues on Easter Island and explored the local fish markets of Zanzibar. He has witnessed the sunrise from a hot air balloon over the Maasai Mara, captured the aurora borealis in Greenland and hunted with the remote San tribesmen of Namibia.

Andrei is patient, ever curious and adventurous. With each new environment he challenges himself to be fully immersed in the location, learning to navigate unfamiliar cultures and different ways of life. His passion is evident in every composition. His artistic style reflects his appreciation for the natural and human world both of which are demonstrated through clean, powerful and evocative photos. He encourages the viewer to look beyond what is right in front of them to the scale and breadth of what surrounds us. While Duman’s portfolio covers a wide range of subjects and environments, he is most passionate about aerial photography. He has logged many hours aboard planes and helicopters, composing an array of unique abstract fine art images shot from above.

Andrei’s work has garnered the interest of many notable parties. He is a featured photographer for The Weather Channel (TWC) with multiple articles published; he has been invited to be an Ambassador to Singh Ray Filters, Hoya Filters, Icebreaker Clothing and Soraa LED Lighting. He recently enjoyed a successful solo showing at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai, China in addition to displays at the Getty, Los Angeles, the Annenberg Space for Photography, Los Angeles and the Iris Gallery, Colorado. Notable publications include Business Insider, Readers Digest, The Daily Mail and a run as the main background image for Bing.com. The gallery is the culmination of over 10 years of work and fulfills Andrei’s vision of sharing his unique glimpse of our world that some may never otherwise get to experience.
