Back from Uganda

My brief journey to Uganda is over and I’m overwhelmed by what I experienced there. I joined a humanitarian (medical) mission in Mbale district, close to the Kenyan border. A small team of doctors volunteered to help diagnose and treat locals for 3 weeks (they are still there) and I documented their work. I have also hiked a bit in the nearby Mount Elgon National park and visited a local coffee plantation which was breathtaking.   I will upload a reportage on the medical mission soon to my portfolio and also another one on a local orphanage which I’ve visited. I’m …

Buso festivities in Hungary

National Geographic publications and recent achievements! :)

October has been quite vivid for me and gave me a lot of energy to move forward and keep going on the chosen path in photography. I have made a decision early this year that I will stop photographing so many things, and will only concentrate on the issues, topics I’m really interested in. Back to October… First I received an email that my images made it to the finalist round in the Travel Photographer of the Year 2014. The final round of judging will happen on 2nd December, so keep your fingers crossed. Some of my images about the “Busó” …

Back from Africa

I’m back from Nigeria, 10 days passed by so quickly. Full of memories of amazing places and people and tons of photos taken on the road (including Lagos, Kaduna, Zaria, Ibadan, small villages and some countryside as well). Detailed post coming soon and I’ll upload a selection of photos to my portfolio soon as well. There will also be an exhibition of some of the photos I took. Details will be announced as soon as it’s final. Stay tuned! ;)

Weekend portrait shoot

In the weekend we experimented with 2 fairly new softboxes of my friend, Aron. I took a few, more or less regular portraits and we also went crazy with location and theme. Here are 2 portraits from the shoot. The crazy stuff comes in a later post. Stay tuned! ;)

Nigeria photo trip in October

Recently decided to travel to Nigeria in October, primarily to visit one of my best friends, Tim and also to explore a bit from a traveller and photography perspective. I’m currently sorting out the airplane ticket and see if I need a visa, how long does it take to get it and so on. The very high-level plan is to visit Lagos, stay there for a few days, and then explore the countryside a bit including visiting a few villages. I also have a few concepts about what I’d like to concentrate, what I’d like to document with photographs, but …

It’s on…

Hello there, this is Zsolt… now that my new website is up and running I’ll run a blog here as well. The main idea is to regularly provide new images (that I wouldn’t add to the portfolio for some reason, but still think are worthy to share), updates on my travels and anything that might be interesting to my readers.
