As our planet is becoming more and more crowded, we need to reconsider our relationship with our environment. I started spending quality time in nature at a very early age, which is also a reason of my becoming a professional wildlife photographer. My goal is to share unique scenes and moment so that people would re-discover their environment, reconnect with it, and find their place in the natural world again.

Wildlife photographer, born in Hungary, 1985. In 2010 he won the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photography of the Year award in London. He is the most effective photographer in the 53-year-old history of the competition, being the only contestant winning the first prize in both the young and adult categories.
