I am a nature photographer from Transylvania, Romania. I have a great passion for nature and the outdoors, and a keen interest in the natural heritage of Romania. Born in 1989 in Targu Mures, the Carpathian Mountains have inspired me as a child, and while studying in a Natural Sciences class in High School I have also started photographing seriously. After graduation I felt that I really wanted to combine my passion for biology with my passion for photography, so with the help of my parents, friends and a university loan, in 2008 I applied for the Wildlife and Environmental Photography Course at the Blackpool and the Fylde College run by the Lancaster University in England.
It was during my university years that I have realised just how special Romania’s natural heritage is, and how many values are often not realised and not protected in Romania. After graduation I have moved back to my hometown, where I have started working on photographic stories of wildlife and ecosystems of Romania. I am committed to conservation; in my photography I like working on projects, and always strive to remain true, and maintain a high ethical standard.
I am a member of naturArt, the Hungarian Association of nature photographers, a founding member of Forona, the Romanian Associacion of nature photographers, member of the iLCP Emerging league program, and a Photographer and Wildlife guide for Sakertour.
Wether it's with the use of camera traps or with days spent camouflaged behind my lens waiting to be part of a special moment, I am passionate about witnessing all kinds of interactions. I feel most at home in the wilderness areas of Romania -the Carpathian Mountains, the Danube Delta - but I always face new environments and challenges with great curiosity.
Exploration - both on the field and artistically - is something that I love to do. In a way every new experiment inspires me on my journey for a deeper understanding.
I strive to give a voice to those that haven't got one, to inspire people for change, and get as many people as possible interested in our environment. I believe in the saying:
'You can only protect something that you already know and care about'
