Sebi, please show me something other than cars!

One day, Sebastian Paunescu received an old camera as a gift from the family. A Nikon D40. Precisely because it was a very old camera, it was the best camera he ever had, he says, because it forced him to learn all kinds of “hacks” in the art of photography. He discovered his passion for photography when he was 15, on a family vacation. He continued to photograph, as a hobby, until things became serious and he had his first clients. Now, he focuses on car photos and product photography.

For the most part, I learned everything about photography on my own, I can’t say that I had a certain mentor. Nowadays there is so much information on the internet that you don’t really need a “mentor” anymore.

Sebastian Paunescu he has only one rule when it comes to photography: at every session he makes every effort to come out flawless. We talk to him in the following lines about cars, inspiration and what photography has taught him so far.

Passion

I discovered my passion for photography at the age of 15-16. We went on a vacation with our parents in Greece, where we made some friends. A more precise couple, very young. One of them had a camera. He took some pictures of me and then let me play with the camera for a while. That was the moment when the “click” occurred and I fell in love with photography.

The first device

Ah, the story of my first camera. Ever since I returned from vacation, until autumn, I only looked at cameras, whatever my photography was. Until one day when I received a camera gift from my family. A Nikon D40. Very old device, even for those times. Although it was a very old one, it was the best camera I ever had, not only because it was the first, but because it was so old, it forced me to learn all kinds of “hacks” in the art of photography. .

Where did you learn

For the most part, I learned everything about photography on my own, I can’t say that I had a certain mentor. Nowadays there is so much information on the internet that you don’t really need a “mentor” anymore.

Photography taught me a lot about socializing, to overcome the limits I didn’t even know I had. The perception of people and society has changed 180 degrees. Having contact with so many people, each one shows you a new and unique experience.

Hobby money

Ever since I went on the road with photography, I didn’t think I would make money from it, I was thinking of a hobby. Life is not exactly like that, as proof, I started to make money from my passion. I started making money from it through clubs, party pictures, etc.

Most of the time, I do automotive and product photography. Although they are not the only ones I do, I do not post other types of content on social networks. I am very attracted to urban photography, but also to landscape.

Your style

I’m typical. If the pictures don’t come out exactly as in my vision or better, I’m not happy. I often take inspiration from other content creators.

My camera would say the following about me: Sebi, please show me something other than cars!

The story of three photos

It is an Audi RS6 2021. This picture was created at an event with those from Audi, on their return from Sighisoara. Why do I like it so much and find it very interesting? Because I got this picture coming out of the hatch of a car, in the rain. It was an experience, although well known to me, it had a special charm. A car that you don’t see every day, a team that I collaborate with very well, a successful event and let’s not forget all the gangs that clung to me when I was on the hatch …

In picture number 2 is a WRC 2 car. More precisely by Mads Østberg. At the beginning of the year I planned to photograph at least one WRC event or a driver / car. A few months later, that really happens.

This time I come up with something more normal. A bubble waffle and a fresh orange. This is where the product photo comes in. Although it is a simple picture with some food, it is among my favorites just because I had the opportunity to taste that bubble waffle and it seemed extraordinary.

Personal guide to ethics

I don’t have a personal guide to ethics, but I have one rule: At every photo shoot, I make every effort to come out flawless.
