I am a Hungarian photographer, located at Miskolc. I am quite fortunate to have different kind of geographical formats and widelife around my area. We have lakes, mountains, city, architecture, industry, many things which are great to be photographed.
I got my first camera when I was ~12, a full-automatic Kodak, as a gift from my father. He was the handler of the family camera when I was a kid, and I was always interested in what he does, but never allowed to use his equipment. My time arrived with digital technology in my adulthood, when I earned my own money for my own hobby. :) I am a member of the Photoclub Miskolc since end of 2014. I enjoy shooting nature, people, URBEX, and I also enjoy doing travel and street photography.
I joined PSA to see out of my own country, to see trends and photographers' work outside my local neighbourhood.

You can see my work on: 500px gallery and Facebook page

In 1979 my family immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio from the former Soviet Union. I have Master’s Degree in Analytical Chemistry from Odessa State University and had a very interesting and fulfilling career dedicated to research, development and promotion of responsible waste management by renewable energy recovery from abundant landfill gas resources in the USA, Europe and South America.

I was always interested in photography and videography, but raising kids and having a demanding job did not allow much time to pursue these interests.

Since retirement in 2015, I was able to dedicate my time and efforts to photography. I enrolled in Community College and took several Photography and Digital Processing Courses. I also joined local Photography Club ½" Chagrin Valley Camera Club. I met many interesting people, accomplished and enthusiastic photographers who share my interest in travel, nature and art.

My choice of subjects comes from different places. I am finding my inspiration everywhere: family, travel, books, films, nature and every-day life.

I enjoy participating in art shows and juried competitions. In the last few years my images were accepted in many art shows in Ohio. I was awarded Best of Show for my photographs in Nature, Landscape, Travel and Still Life Categories.

I am looking forward to my membership at PSA, to new learning opportunities and to making new friends.

Hi all. I hail from India and love photography. Although I carried camera for good 8-9 years, it is only in the last 2-3 years, did I started a constant review of what I shoot and how I shoot.

I personally love being close to natural setup and observing wildlife at close quarters... My love for birdwatching further spooked this interest in nature photography. I would like to bring out the behavior, ecosystem, season or some specific aspects of the wildlife/birds as much as I can.

I carry a Canon 7DM2 and 60D along with few lens. I hire lens when on a wildlife safari or a birding trip. I also use a 100mm lens for a macro setup.
