Cristina Matei

Visual Artistry

Hi there! I'm Cristina, I'm a 29 y/o Bucharest based photographer and cinematographer and I've started my journey in the visual Arts 12 years ago, starting with portraiture and nude photography. During the last years, I've extended to photographing dancers, coreographers, performances & shows, street photography, photojournalism, starting to do commercial work as well and also including online work, animations (cinemagraphs, boomerangs, GIFS), Behind the Scene (Making of), theatre photography, private events, such as couples and family shootings, pet photography, weddings (proposal, ceremony, parties, trash the dress) and baptisms. I'm a very open and friendly by nature and I'm also open to new challenges.

I graduated Cinematography in 2015 at UNATC, I.L Caragiale in Bucharest, Romania with a B.A in The art of Visual Imagery, I attended Photography Lessons in The Popular School of Arts, Pitesti and I have a Trainer's certificate from ILBAH. I've participated in many photo exhibitions and international photo competitions and won several First, Special and Popularity Prizes in competitions and festivals such as: CineMaIubit (winner in 3 editions for photography, short-movie and movie posters), 3Fest (winner of 3 editions), ManyFest (winner of 4 editions), Photomagazine (finalist and winner in monthly photo competitions), Grupul Fotografilor Romani de Pretutindeni and Tres Court International Movie Festival (short-movie). I'm currently studying at UTM Psychology University, as I wish to also develop skills in this area.

It's very important to me that your overall experience while we work together is a wonderful, stress free one, that you will remember with a smile on your face :) Especially if you're camera shy! So I will do my best to give you wonderful memories to look over as years pass by, add my personal touch and vision, while having a pleasant collaborative experience. I think good communication is key to every kind of relationship, so if you have any questions, please write a message in the form you will find in the Contact section!

Looking forward to meeting you!
