Tell us about yourself…
My name is Adrian Limani. I am 21 years old and a student of Computer Sciences & Technology. My nationality is Albanian and I am a self-taught photographer. I do different kind of photography but mostly I prefer fine art imagery based on photo manipulations of images that I photograph myself. Currently I live in Kosovo, Pristina.
My passion is photography & design. Design was part of my life since I was in high school but I started photography when I was 17. My first photos were of nature and landscape category.
Besides photography I like music, sport (basketball), movies…
When did you start to photograph and what attracted you to photography?
I started to photograph when I was 17. At that time I was inspired by nature so I mostly photographed nature and landscapes. Photography was an excellent hobby to have. Walking and taking shots I could save the moments and make them unforgettable just with one click.
Later I became a fan of FineArt because this category goes beyond taking photos and allows you to create your own images. You can create a very beautiful picture with your imagination and bring to life your own art world. Today many of my pictures are published in well known newspapers and magazines around the world, such as Daily Mail, The Sun, Photography Monthly Magazine,The Australian etc.
When you come up with an idea for an image what is your creative process? Do you sketch, talk to friends, is there a specific time of day or events that trigger these ideas, etc.?
Every time when I go out to take photos, I come up with some different ideas. Usually when I go out to take photos, my brother is with me so he really helps me as a model, always. So I tell him what to do and sometimes he does things his own way that really help me to improve my ideas.
P.S. You can spot Adrian’s brother in the silhouette photographs.
