Talent Pool! Starring, @daniel_koehalmi / You already got the chance to get to know Daniel since we shared his story a while ago. We have been keeping in touch with him, seeing him growing, and today we welcome him officially to our Talent Pool!
Daniel is from Hungary and based in Munich, Germany. During his sabbatical year he has been searching for the cause of the empty feeling he had, and in his search for purpose he found nature and photography to be the remedy. He has been learning about photography constantly, practicing every day, and is reaching his goal to live from photography step by step. First he found purpose in life, and now he is gradually finding his photography style, experimenting with elements and applying all that he has learned in his own way. He describes this beautifully: “My photography is documenting my artistic journey.” With his photography, Daniel loves to demonstrate the connection between human and nature in every possible form, transmitting feelings and emotions.
In this sense, he is not just referring to landscapes, but also to animals. He would love to do more wildlife photography, and what makes him feel so enthusiastic about this, is again the connection you can feel. His favorite photos are a portraiture of a fox with closed eyes (see pic. 7) and a capture where two deers are looking at each other, standing in the snow. He says: “Both expressions are almost human like.” We are closer to nature than we think, but we need to take time and being open to see and feel it.
This sabbatical taught Daniel a lot regarding this. He realized how narrow minded we can get in some situations and in our careers; careers can consume us. Seeing the contrast during his sabbatical helped him tremendously to put things into perspective and having a healthier attitude in general. He mentions: “I have a huge amount of trust in life and myself: I know that I can build up a life and a lifestyle I would be happy with and through this I can contribute to this world much more.” Curious about what other advices and experiences @daniel_koehalmi has shared with us?!
