CITY OF ORADEA / Pictures made by Ovi D. Pop E.FIAP



I was born in Oradea on the 9th of April, 1973. I have been a photographer for over 20 years. I prefer landscape photography, portrait, aerial and street photography. I had managed to issue six illustrated editions of the Bihor County monography, which contain about 1.000 photographs, illustrating the most representative sites in the county. I also issued six editions of the Travel Guide Book of Bihor County, many postcards, pocket books, which reflect his photographic activity.


In 2013 my photographic activity took a turn towards artistic photography and I managed to become a Art. AAFR (The Association of Romanian Artist Photographers) artist and E.FIAP artist (Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique), managing to obtain 230 prizes (5 international trophies, 40 gold medals/1st place, 18 silver medals/2nd place, 23 bronze medals/3rd place, 9 diplomas and 132 honorable mentions) in 25 countries like Greece, Ireland, Croatia, Finland, Sweden, Montenegro, Slovakia, Ukraine, Serbia, Bosnia and Hertegovina, India, China, Hungary, Dominica, USA, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Spain, Georgia, Macedonia and Romania.

I had several individual photography exhibitions in Oradea, Cluj Napoca, Valea lui Mihai, Hajduszoboszlo (Hungary) - 2013, 2014, Bruxelles - 2013, 2014, Cernăuţi (Ukraine), but also group photography exhibitions in Cluj Napoca, Bucharest, Szeged, Budapest, Bratislava, Kosice (Slovakia), Cernăuţi and Ujgorod (Ucraine), Chişinău (Moldavia) and in Shenzen (China).


From 2016 I started the first authorised Photo School in Oradea with the authority of the Ministry of Work and the Ministry of Education in Romania.
