Wildlife photography perfectly suits nature, physics and art enthusiasts. Expensive equipment does not necessarily mean better images, and a little creativity is an important ingredient when taking innovative photos, technology being much less important than the person behind the camera. If the manual settings of the camera are used, only three things then need to be coordinated: 1) shutter speed, 2) aperture and 3) ISO. These variables can be combined in countless ways, with an infinite variety of resulting images.

Wildlife photographer, born in Hungary, 1985. In 2010 he won the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photography of the Year award in London. He is the most effective photographer in the 53-year-old history of the competition, being the only contestant winning the first prize in both the young and adult categories. In 2005 he experimented the one-way glass photography technique, making fundamental changes in hide photography practice. This technique has been widely used all over the world, and most hides are equipped with such glasses.
