Hi, I am Elian Coman.
I am an enthusiast photographer with a keen interest in creating fine art painterly portrait photography. Together with my wife Diana, we are "Drag de Fotografie" which stands for Being in Love with Photography in Romanian.
I am Silver badge in Portrait Creative, 16th spot in country ranking - WPE Awards First Half 2022
I am Top 10 Brasov photographers (Top 35 in country ranking), Top 100 Staged Photo and Top 200 Female Portrait photographer - 7th 35AWARDS.
My area of expertise is studio photography as I choose to fully control the light in my work, being able to place it and shape it as per my artistic choices. I create portraits of several kinds and ranging from children, singles and couples to fine art nude photography.
The projects I develop go from more or less casual portraits to highly elaborated visual stories. My main source of inspiration is art in general and baroque painting in particular - by all means and including lighting patterns and visual styling.
I am based in Brasov, Romania.
