I was born and live in a beautiful historical city of Kosice, Slovakia. I graduated from Medical University. Since my youth age I was interested in art, in its various genres.  Many years ago was studying also at art school where we focused on drawing and painting. I loved especially to paint oils on canvas. Besides that, I started to discover the magic of the darkroom and started to shoot on BW film and transparent. Later on, I 've been taking pictures on digital. I soon realized that photography will be that wonderful and exciting journey for me. I am an outdoor type of person and I am spending most of my leisure activities in nature. Especially mountain biking, running, hiking and ski mountaineering.   Since a teenager I have taken photographs, starting with capture on transparency at first, using B&W films and more recently enjoying digital capture for its benefits.  I consider myself as a landscape photographer, searching for those special moments and mood. My relationship to nature and mountains stands behind most of my photographs, spending there a lot of time with my camera. I love to compose the man into the frame to emphasize the human respect to nature and mountains and to show how small here we are. I love minimalism in photography. I often try to compose my shots this way. My intention is to get not a complex, just easy to read, atmospheric and impressive pictures. Those are the shots I am satisfied with. Such a picture with a mood or story has a value for me at any time I take it.

My photography journey has never been the same, it's always in progress. I still enjoy mainly the thought process, observation of scenery, light, waiting for the - right moment, timing and much more. I feel many times like I was a hunter who waits patiently for his opportunity to press the trigger, but doesn't hurt to Nature just saves the moments.  I am always happy if my work speaks to others, evokes emotions and can be found as an inspiration for others. Your kind visit in my gallery is much appreciated and thanks for taking your time and reading this..:) You can find more of my work here:                                                                                                                       email: [email protected] FB: https//
