My name is Kristóf Diós, I am a biology student and wildlife photographer based in Hungary. I was born in 1994 and since then I have been living in Dévaványa, a small city located in the South-Eastern region of the country.
I study ecology at university and I have great passion for mammals, especially for carnivores. Also my thesis project is about the golden jackal.
My devotion to wildlife goes back to my childhood when I took part in many nature conservation programs/projects and bird ringing camps.
In the beginning, I used to hike around home only with binoculars, but later on I wanted to share these experiences with others - and that is how photography came into the picture.
I have been photographing wildlife since 2012, that was the year when I got my first DSLR camera.
I spend all of my free time outdoors. I really like to study various behaviors, to lay under the camouflage net for hours, to discover new locations and to think about new photographic ideas.
For me, wildlife photography is about self-realization, it is the projection of the human creativity, the peace itself, an escape from the everyday life and of course, it is a challenge, too.
