Landscape photography is the escape to freedom, being closer to nature as we should all be.

Ciprian Popica

My name is Ciprian and I live in Prejmer, a little village in the beautiful Transylvania. The interest for photography started when I was only four years old, thanks to my dad. I started to take it seriously in 2003 for a few years. Later from 2009 until recently I did video production, or worked as a video technician and entertainment technical manager aboard cruise ships. For a while I thought is the dream job as I could travel the world. After a few years I realized that it was not exactly what I was hoping for.

In the spring of 2023 I decided to return to photography as a full-time landscape photographer. Besides landscape photography, I am also passionate about sailing. In 2015 I moved aboard my sailboat where I lived for almost four years. The intention was to sail around the world. An amazing way to visit many unique locations that I could photograph. Life doesn’t always go as we plan it, so in 2018 I had to return home in Romania and postpone the adventure for a later time… the right time.

Being away from photography for so many years, I had lots to catch up with. For this reason I decided to start a YouTube channel where I could share my outdoors adventures and the passion for photography. The videos are a great method of telling the story behind the images. Hopefully I can create content that would also inspire other people passionate about photography and outdoors adventures. Landscape photography is the escape to freedom, being closer to nature as we should all be.

Prejmer - Brașov

Prejmer is a commune in Brașov County, Transylvania – Romania, located 18 km ( 11 mi ) northeast of Brașov, the Olt River passes through the commune. 

The town of Prejmer near the castle had begun development by 1225, and was the easternmost settlement of the Transylvanian Saxons. Prejmer was repeatedly invaded by various groups, including the Mongols, Tatars, Hungarians, Ottoman Turks, Cossacks, and Moldavians. However, the castle was only captured once, by Gabriel Báthory in 1611.

If you come visit Prejmer let me know, so we can enjoy a cup of coffee.
