About Me

My name is Ovidiu Tutunaru, I'm 31 years old and I live in Bucharest, Romania. I currently work in online marketing for a private media company and I'm madly passionate about photography.

I’m an amateur photographer for many years now and I’ll probably remain an amateur photographer for the rest of my life. I don't really want to turn photography into a job, because, if I do that, it will bore me to death after a while. I think that photography, like any other creative passion, it’s best to be taken lightly. Too much seriousness can ruin it.

I take pictures hoping to catch some interesting moments. Sometimes, I’m a bit sad knowing that in every moment something interesting occurs and usually there’s no one to capture it for eternity. When I have my camera with me, I wish I could be simultaneous in a million places but that doesn’t happens because, as we all know, life has some limitations. :)

About this site

If you ever wondered what “emagini” means, here’s the answer… “Emagini” is almost like “imagini” (“images” in romanian). “E” in english is pronounced like “i” in romanian and therefore “emagini” in english sounds like “imagini” in romanian but not with an accent on the last syllable, as it could be pronounced, for instance, in italian. I bet all my money that after this explanation you are more confused as in the beginning.

Anyway, this site has, primarily, a personal purpose, and that is to store my photographic memories. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy visits and comments. On the contrary, I would like to thank all my visitors for those two things and to ask new ones to leave a sign of their passing. A critique, good or bad, can only encourage me.

Regarding photography types, I’m not so selective. I shoot anything, as one might say - landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, bugs, animals, people. Here, I try to post one photo per day but sometimes I don’t succeed because I don’t always find enough time.

Please, feel free to browse through my photos. I hope you’ll enjoy at least some of them.
