When and why did you take up photography?

I have been in love with photography since I was a child. A big role was played by my mother’s cousin, who was a famous Hungarian photographer. Under his influence, I picked up an analog camera for the first time and learned how to use it. It all started 26 years ago and the passion continues to this day.

What do you love about taking photos?

For me, photography is the art of the moment. In today’s fast-paced world, I try to show small details and missed moments that are invisible to others. I try to stop time with my photos. For me, photography breaks constancy, brings peace and harmony to my life.

What is your favorite place to take pictures and why?

Wherever I go, I take my camera with me because I believe that there is always potential in the habitat that surrounds us. For me, the most favorite places are Wales and Scotland. They fascinate me because of the breathtaking landscape and thousands of years of history.

I am a landscape and fine arts photographer. I enjoy artistic macros, futuristic landscapes and socially critical photography, but recently I have become a great lover of birds and nature photography.

What do you like about being part of our Camera Club on Facebook?

I have been a member of the group for about five years. I like that there are photographers of all levels and personalities, from amateurs to professionals, so you can gather a lot of inspiration. The club is very active and has a family atmosphere, so club members can present their photos without fear, because they know that they will only receive constructive advice. It always gives me great joy when various events bring members together. I was proud, for example, when one of my photos was put on display with some other members last year at an exhibition here in Warrington.

If you could photograph anyone/any place/anything, who/what would it be?

My big dream is to photograph the Scandinavian countries and Scotland, including the NC500 in winter. But my biggest dream is still a photo trip to Iceland. Unfortunately in 2021 this has been canceled due to Covid-19. I am currently working on a photo guide showcasing North Wales’ historical heritage.
