BIOGRAPHY?

After finished my studies in KREA Contemporary Art School, I opened my 300 m2 photo studio, Silens Photo & Style in the 18th district of Budapest.

Primary I work in interior design photography, advertising, fashion and portraiture. Also work on my personal projects while the studio is running continuously fully booked.

Digital photography is a fine tool for me, while I consider analogue photography as self expression. My unique style is based on pure forms, I love extraordinary buildings and structures.

With more than 10 years in photography, we regularly organize workshops in the studio, giving visual and technical advice to young photographers. My photographic works are published both in online and offline media, including interior shots of the luxury multi brand, department store, il Bacio di Stile or club Tesla Budapest.

Apart from commercial photography, I regularly exhibit my analogue work in galleries, such as the Museum of Applied Arts and Design Terminal.

Currently, I am increasing the creative investment of the studio and broadening my work to the international market.

BIOGRAPHY?

I studied photography at BKF University of Applied Sciences between 2011 and 2014 where I could acquire a deep knowledge in several fields ranging from the mysteries of archaic photography techniques to the professional use of state of the art studio equipment. During the three-year-long BA programme, I had the chance to work closely together with young fashion designers, ceramicists and graphic designers with whom I continue to cooperate.

I started working at Silens Photo & Style in 2013, where I provide professional assistance during rentals and I also work on my own projects. I like trying out new things: my personal projects are characterised by an experimental approach. I mainly shoot fashion editorials, campaigns, portraits and advertising and I also participated in several interior photoshoots.
