Here is a new video. It’s pretty long, 10 minutes, I went through few times and edited out as much as I could to make it shorter, but there is quite a lot of information included, so I hope you will find it worthy of your time.  The prints I’ve made I’m not putting them on ebay auction, since last two auctions didn’t went that well, to be honest. Plus last week my work was being presented at ArtMarket Budapest, an international art fair, by Photon Gallery. I am on the right path, my work received good attention, I’ve met some very important curators and collectors and I’ve realized that all I need at this time is just a little more patience and I reckon one more year to catch up with boys & girls from the first art league. I know I will get there, but I’m not there quite yet. I will stop with Ebay auctions for now. The prints are still on sale, of course just send me an email of inquiry CLICK.

  4. One more thing – the image is beautiful! Which is, of course, the first thing I should have typed about.

  6. John, no I don’t fear snakes although we have the most poisonous snake in Europe horned viper Vipera ammodytes. We also have bears, wolfs, lynx and even beaver is back! Here are many animals that are gone in other parts of Europe. I haven’t seen any of them in wild, but I’m very very certain that they have seen me many times. I fear only one animal and that’s tick.

    Thank you guys! I have at least ten videos recorded already, but don’t find time to edit them.

  7. I love them all, great video well worth your hard work. I love to see how the magic is created, hopefully one day I shall try myself. Is the tent purpose made, what’s the story?

  8. Lesley, the tent is Eskimo Quickfish tent intended for fishing on ice lakes, but it’s excellent also as a darkroom😉
