Monza 2019

I always characterize myself as a professional photographer, who is a hardcore racing fan, and I guess I’m quite close to reality with this description. Started watching Formula 1 in 1997 and could not stop ever since. During the numerous seasons, I discovered other racing series as well and with attending several races live, I could develop my interest in photography, so my passion turned into work with the time.

After a successful cooperation with Motorzaj (2016 – 2019) I started to work as a freelancer photographer. In my professional carreer, I was lucky enough to cover selected races as an accredited photographer in WTCC / WTCR, ETRC, Pure ETCR, Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, DTM, ADAC GT Masters, Zürich 24h Nürburgring, BlancPain GT, Formula 1, Formula E, TCR, GT Open, F2/F3/F4 Europe and WEC.

I am also a member of Closed Wheel Racing Media Group, an international team of independent motorsport journalists.

List of books where I am either the co-author and/or include my photos:

  • Christopher Hilton: Grand Prix Battlegrounds : A Comprehensive Guide to All Formula 1 Circuits Since 1950 (2010)
  • Szilvia Magyar – Pietro Casillo: 10 years of WTCC – Interviews, reports and stories from the first decade of the World Touring Car Championship (extended edition) (2016)
  • Szilvia Magyar – Erika Schneider: Life over 220… Touring car stories from 2017 (2018)
  • Szilvia Magyar – The winter series (2019)

Here, you can listen to an interview with me (in Hungarian language)

Besides racing photography, there are some documentary and art projects, where my works have been a part of different exhibitions.
