Daniel Mîrlea is a Romanian landscape and nature photographer passionate about discovering new places. Daniel’s photographic adventure started at the end of 2015 with a hike in Cozia National Park in Romania, where he was photographing the Făgăraș Mountains. Two years later, he quit his job as a manager, to do nature photography. For him, photography is not just taking photos, it is a way of life. Daniel says that nature is his home, and through photography, he is trying to show other people how beautiful and vital to our lives it is. He believes that everything in nature is connected, and we, as nature photographers, have a mission when we are in the field: to protect the environment and to take with us just the memories of that moment and the photograph itself. Daniel firmly believes that through photography, we can help nature's conservation. Because of this, he is collaborating with conservation and nature protecting NGOs, like WWF Romania, Rewilding Europe, and Conservation Carpathia. Since January 2020, he is a vice-president of the Romanian Nature Photography Association called FORONA, and since June 2020, a Community Advocate at Nature First Photography.
