Krisztina spent years studying and photographing the Rushing Grebes and guides her clients at Lake Hodges in San Diego to experience this amazing behavior and capture their own photos. She is known as the "Grebe Whisperer", as they clients like to call her.


Growing up in Hungary as a young teenager she spent her summers hiking, camping and learning about nature, wildlife and conservation. After getting her college degree in Animal Science & Agricultural Engineering from the University of Godollo in Hungary, she continued her studies at Purdue University. During her graduate school years she worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Biology Department at Purdue. 


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

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. She offers guiding, photography tuition, and print sales. All photography tours & workshops are suitable for all levels of photographic skill or experience.
