Bc. Gábor Fűri

Gábor was born on 17th May, 1989 in Komárno. He studied at the Business Academy in Šurany and later at the University of Economy in Bratislava, Faculty of National Economy in the field Social Development and Social Policy. From 15 years of age he has watched the world through a camera's viewfinder. The turning point came in his first year at university, when he picked up his first DSLR. Photography and the technique itself fascinated him so much that he still works as a freelance photographer. He went through nearly every photography genre, but 2012 was a breakthrough in his work. Meeting with Máté Bence - world-famous action bird-life photographer  - changed his view. Since then, he has focused his lens mainly on birds and nature. He works as a volunteer at the Centre for Environmental Education Dropie, he has given lectures at the Ekotopfilm festival, and he recently exhibited his collection of photographs from the life of birds. He is devoted to wedding, product, sports and reportage photography in his everyday life.
