Christian Kleiman was born in Alicante, Spain in 1969. He started photography in 2006 when he discovered how to obtain photos from a self build remote-controlled camera system that he used to hang on a flying parasail towed by his boat.
Christian first specialized in aerial photography where he started taking pictures from his “flying camera” of other boats in sailing races.
When he decided to make a living out of photography he specialized as well in 360 panoramic photography.
And by merging these two techniques he managed to create 360 aerial panoramic photos, which back at that time in 2012, were only developed by a few photographers.
After service as a freelance photographer in aerial photography, 360 immersive photography, and the creation of virtual tours, Christian moved to New Zealand in 2014, where during the following eight years he focused on specific locations in Polynesia, especially in New Zealand and the Fiji Islands for his surreal concept series; "What a Wonderful World".
Christian is currently established in the United Arab Emirates as a fine art photographer pursuing projects in which he can apply his creative techniques and discover new ways of expression.
Coming from a nautical background, he evolved in an environment surrounded by the sea. Constantly aware of the complete scene, as far as the eyes can see. This has marked an extraordinary influence on how this photographer represents his creations based on images where you can “see it all”.
Christian Kleiman is a photographer who through inspiration and self-teaching evolves continuously by exploring new ways of expression in search of the unseen perspective.
