I’m a South Australian landscape photographer, writer and social worker currently living in regional Victoria with my gorgeous dog Charlie. I have a Hungarian background and I still speak the language. In fact, my surname is the Hungarian word for “flower”.
People are often surprised to learn that I have university qualifications in accounting, journalism, public health and social work and think it’s an unusual combination. But it works for me. Finance plays a part in every industry, as does communication. I’ve always known that health, personal development and social issues are my favourite topics to write about. With my lifelong love of stories, it was also inevitable that the day would arrive when I no longer knew if the pen or the camera was my primary storytelling tool. But the truth of the matter is, there is no reason to choose one over the other.
I love exploring both rural and urban areas and nothing excites me more than capturing a thunderstorm and encouraging others to look for and appreciate the beauty in the world around them. I also enjoy nature, travel and street photography, but I’m always inevitably drawn back to landscapes.
While I do love the convenience of digital DSLR and mirrorless cameras and use a combination of Canon and Fujifilm gear, I occasionally still shoot a roll of film, which I plan to do a lot more of in 2018. I also suspect my newly acquired Russian vintage lens from the 1960s will get a fair bit of use this year.
Most of my images are available for sale as prints, so if you are looking for that unique birthday or Christmas present, please write to me via the Contact page.
