HI! I AM CSABA,
A guy from the Great Plain in Hungary, Europe, who has been living in the capital for more than a decade and earlier had conducted chemical studies. Then, he moved to the technical field and graduated in IT in Székesfehérvár, then moved to Budapest. Maybe that is how I would put the first chapter of my own story as an outsider.
I love gorgeous, soft lights. My pictures are characterized by spontaneous, captured moments, dominated by feelings and emotions. To record stories, embrace those meaningful, twinkling split seconds and convey all of these in pictures; that is what photography means for me, that is what makes it my greatest passion.
I like discovering the world. I am longing for novelty and the unknown. I love taking photos at places where I have never been before especially because of the immanent potential of the environment and nature that provide an incentive for my creativity.
Capturing visual contents has been present in my life since my early childhood. I started with videography. First, I played around with the Hi8 analog camera of the family. Then, combining it with digital imaging, I started to perform as a VJ on smaller and bigger electronic music parties, in the company of a lot of domestic and international performers. Maybe that is where it all started. At that time, I bought the first camera in my life in order to produce short films for screenings, and then I thought it would be worth using my camera for taking pictures as well. I took action right away and started shooting. I was so fascinated by photography that I developed an interest for model photography, more specifically for high fashion and beauty photography. Turning the pages of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, I studied the lights, pictures and postures. This has led me to take photos for several agencies and companies in Budapest, New York and Los Angeles. In addition, the couple and wedding photography has also emerged, for which I received a lot of inspiration from model photography.
