Personal Profile

As a professional wildlife photographer I am proud that my photos have been published in National Geographic. You can view my photo gallery online on National Geographic's Your Shot Photo Community.

In 2013, I founded my own non-profit association “Vodomar” (kingfisher in Croatian), that promotes nature and culture and raises money for humanitarian needs. The association raises money worldwide and is run by award-winning photographers like Goran Jovic, Vedran Vidak, Zoran Marinovic and myself.

I have organised several photographic exhibitions in Croatia and during the exhibitions all photographs have been sold. All money raised at these events was donated to charity, which meant that several scholarships were funded for orphans. 

I enjoy cliff climbing and cycling in which I have achieved several gold medals and a golden globe.
