Profile and Photographic Activity

Dr Markus Sorin


My visual arts journey started when I was 3 years old, when my uncle introduced me to a camera. It was an old Smena. Since that moment photography has become a central point in my everyday life and there was nothing I could do about it.

Firstly, I was the „class photographer” from the 1st grade up until highschool and then I continued being an event photographer in my city.  One of the most significant milestones in my photography career was being nominated „Photographer of the Week” in Ovi D. Pop’s Photography Magazine. Afterwards, I have met the great photographer, Serge Ramelli, who guided me further in the universe of photography. By working one on one with Serge, I improved my technique even more, but the most important, I became certain of my artistic direction, and how it contributes in making people at least a bit happier. At the end of the course, Serge gave me the title of ” Master of Photography” in 2017 and I have to say I am beyond grateful for such a remarkable compliment and diploma. During the course, I also won a couple of landscape photography contests and cityscape photography contests. An amazing community of photographers has been created at Serge’s courses, leading us to an incredible flow of photography exchange via facebook.

In 2013, I became an EFA member and since then I have gained many awards on the international scene.

In 2015 I had my first art exhibition hosted by EFA at Baile Felix. It was a very rewarding moment in my career as a photographer, as I had in front of my eyes the work of many years.  It was such a delightful experience that I had to do it again: In 2023 my landscape photography has been integrated in the busses interiors in Oradea.  In the same year, I had 2 group exhibitions, the first one being part of the „Sinestezia” project, and the second one, hosted at the „Palace of Culture” in Sighetu Marmatiei. Moreover, I am working pro bono as a photographer and videographer at „Salut Sighet”, a local news outlet, since it has been founded.
