tell us a bit about you and where you are from?
I'm from Budapest, Hungary. I'm 41. I used to work in the advertising industry.
how and when did you get interested in photography?
It started in 2005. I just suddenly felt I must take photos. My first camera was a Nikon FM3a film camera.
what are two of your favorite photos that you have taken?
which photographers works do you like?
There are many of them, but if I have to name a few I'll pick the Hungarian-born photographers from the mid-20th century: André Kertész, Brassai, Robert Capa, Martin Munkácsi. From the current breed I like the work of Peter Hapák the most.
your favorite photobloggers that you follow?
I follow at least 50-60 photoblogs on a daily basis, I find all of them inspirational. A couple of my favourites:
what kind of equipment do you use?
I use a Canon 50D with a 17-55/2,8 IS, 10-22/3,5-4,5, 70-200/4 IS, 100 macro. Occasionally I still use film, but getting it developed and scanning takes too much time and hassle...
do you have any formal training?
Not very formal, but I had lessons on portrait photography from Martin Szipál, a former Hollywood portrait photographer.
do you use software to touch up photos? what do you use?
I use Lightroom on every picture, I retouch studio portraits in photoshop.
what kind of pictures do you love to take?
I love studio portraits, food photography and I also love to take photos around a small lake 'Velence' in Hungary
what inspires you?
The whole world is an inspiration. I continuously train my eyes to see geometry and compositions in everything I look at.

I aspire to be a professional(ish) portrait photographer.
