Catalin’s photographic journey started 12 years ago when he came to Canada, got his first professional camera and took his first photography courses at the George Brown College in Toronto. Many years (and cameras) later, his work expanded to include abstracts and architecture, travel and street photography, with a budding interest in nature photography.
For 9 years, Catalin has also been one of Toronto Argonauts’ photographers, covering their home games as well as the Grey Cup Festivals organized by the Canadian Football League in Toronto.
He’s a member of The Toronto Camera Club, where he chairs the Assigned Topics competition, and a member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA). Catalin won many awards for his work, among which are Prix de la Photographie, Paris; EPSON Pano Awards, Australia; and, more recently, the 2019 Silver Medal for Audio Visual Presentation, organized by CAPA.
