Early life[edit]

Edward Aninaru was born and raised in Bucharest, the capital of Romania, where he graduated a school of music and one of accountancy and attended two colleges. He discovered photography in 2007.[1][2] He didn't attend any photography course or school, it all happened accidentally. He uploaded pictures to different forums and the feedback of the people motivated him to pursue the photography as a profession[3].


Aninaru started his career in Bucharest, Romania, working for INNA, with whom he shot over 50 photo sessions, some of them being featured in magazines.[4] He has photographed for covers of ELLE Romania, ELLE Bulgaria, Playboy Romania, Forbes Romania, FHM Romania, FHM France, FHM Russia, SHAPE Malaysia and CKM (Poland).[5] and shot campaigns for Anastasia Beverly Hills, Pepsi Romania and Romanian record labels Roton, Cat Music and MediaPro Music.[citation needed]

In 2012, Aninaru moved to Los Angeles and worked with Celine Dion, Ne-Yo, Jay Sean,[6] Shontelle, The Janoskians, Michael Franti, Akcent, Alexandra Stan, James Goldstein, Falling in Reverse, Catrinel Menghia and Madalina Ghenea.[7][8][9] Madalina Ghenea, the Romanian fashion model, said of Aninaru on her Facebook page - "I work with one of the greatest photographers in the world!".[10][11] He also shot for Capitol Records and Sony Music.[citation needed]

Music videos[edit]

Aninaru has also directed music videos, both in Romania and the United States, his first one being filmed in 2012, for INNA's single "WoW".[12][13][14] He also directed videos for INNA's "INNdiA",[15] "Crazy Sexy Wild (Tu si Eu)"[16] and "More Than Friends".[17][18][19] In 2012 Aninaru directed Romanian artist Antonia's video for her single "Jameia".[20]
