The experience with Liviu was wonderful from the second he introduced himself! He, not only taught me the best way to pose for photos but also gave insightful narratives about the various tourist spots/popular landmarks within Hamburg. I loved the cues he gave during the photoshoot. My photos are fabulous! A must do experience with Liviu for an enriching holiday experience!

For a person who is not exactly relaxed in front of the camera it was great to have a shooting session with Liviu. Good tips on how to relax and pose, useful brakes in between and an excellent final result. Much appreciated and will definitely recommend further!

I had a great experience with Liviu! He is very creative and patient. I learned how to pose and i got the best professional photos. I would totally recommend him. Can't wait for the next photoshoot! Thank you so much.

Cool experience. I could learn a lot about posing from Liviu. He not only gives you insider tips on how to pose and what to pay attention to but also tells you about Hamburg's history and landmarks.

The photo shoot wasn't just a great way to build my modeling portfolio, it was also a lot of fun! Liviu is an amazing person and his humor will make you laugh!
