Zoltan was born in 1973 in the Hungarian city of Budapest, where he grew up among patterns and dyed fabrics since his parents worked in the fashion industry.

After finishing school he felt a growing interest in photography and began to learn it as self-taught. Following a few years of portrait and fashion photography, he decides to move to Milan and try out himself in a more sophisticated work environment by enjoying the support of a representative with international clientele. With 8 years of experience in Milan he moves to New York where he is still based.

With an eye trained towards the timeless vision of Avedon and Penn, he draws his motivation from the world around him to put his creativity to the best possible use. He simply can be inspired by anything. As a matter of fact, there seems to be a timeless, yet human quality to Zoltan’s work, which shows a mixture of intimacy and elevation.

 

He has worked with clients such as DKNY, Phillip Lim, Club Monaco, Net-a-Porter, L’Oreal, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and La Perla. Zoltan’s elegant, yet creative art form has seen him work for editors like the London Sunday Telegraph, Harper’s Bazaar Spain, Harper’s Bazaar Netherlands, Sunday Times Style, Kinfolk, Glamour and Vogue.

One big inspiration for Zoltan has been the words of Ansel Adams : “No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit”.
