Cuejdel: the enchanted and dangerous lake
Last year we met Gheorghe Popa at our festival during the award show of Nature Photographer of the Year. He won the Portfolio Award with his stunning landscape images made in Romania. He’s such a great guy! He has his own pharmacy business. As a person he is very humorous and adventurous and besides he is also a very talented photographer!
But what we also remember about him is that photography can sometimes be very dangerous! He almost got killed… Lucky for us and his family it didn’t happen and he will show us how he makes his beautiful and artistic landscape photos. He will also tell us why he was allowed to live twice….
Gheorge Popa loves all forms of photography, yet he usually focuses his lens on landscapes. He has traveled a lot around the world, but despite that, Lake Cuejdel in Romania continues to give him the greatest satisfaction and joy. For him, Cuejdel is the place to relax and to practice his photography skills.
During this inspiring lecture, he will take you to the enchanting Lake Cuejdel during the four seasons. He tells you how he was there any time of the day, to search for the best photo opportunity. Often it didn’t work out and he came home frustrated. The perfect light he was looking for was missing, or simply because he was dissatisfied with the technical result.
At a certain point everything fell into place: the light, the fog and especially the inspiration. Over a period of four years, he has made a whole collection of special photos in the different seasons. Enjoy Gheorghes magical pictures and let yourself be enchanted!
