San Diego, California


Photographer / Guide / Owner


Growing up in Hungary as a young teenager I spent my summers hiking, camping and learning about nature, wildlife and conservation. After getting my college degree in Animal Science & Agricultural Engineering from the University of Godollo in Hungary, I continued my studies at Purdue University. During my graduate school years I worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Biology Department at Purdue. Later I moved to Southern California where I continued to enjoy and photograph the local wildlife and the natural beauty of my favorite spot, Lake Hodges in San Diego County. Today I spend my time between San Diego and roaming Scotland, where I also offer small group ours to the Highlands and Isle of Skye for nature photography. I also offer tours to Ireland, Costa Rica and other parts of the US.


Being an avid outdoor enthusiast helped me fuel my appreciation for the natural world.  My interest in photographing wildlife is to being able to share with others who may not otherwise get the opportunity. 

My first experience with cameras started 25 years ago with those "old" film cameras. I've even developed my own film in my photo lab. Moved to digital cameras with interchangeable lenses years ago and settled with Canon gear.
Photography is an adventure, just like life itself. Come join me on this journey exploring the beautiful world of wildlife and landscapes around San Diego County in California and Scotland, United Kingdom.

I offer guiding, photography tuition, and print sales. All photography tours & workshops are suitable for all levels of photographic skill or experience. Both group and private, one on one sessions available. For more info click on the Workshops & Tours Tab.
