Andrey Turanov

ss2013 / Latvia

Heading up Latvia’s Makers campaign is Andrey Touranov, a 26 year old cameraman, stuntman and parkour instructor. Andrey finds these different practices are perfect partners: Parkour creates stunning visuals, whilst cinematography captures them. ”When I discovered Parkour, the constant movement became my obsession. Parkour has always been a very visual discipline and therefore, the camera is always there. So, eventually, one day I ended up on the other side of the lens. Now, making videos is my passion. I have learned the language of movements, now I learn how to communicate and reach out to people with my videos. It is obvious, that I often combine those two languages.”
