My name is András Bánkuti,
I’m a photoreporter.
After secondary school, András Bánkuti gained a qualification in professional photography and then completed the Photojournalism course at the György Bálint Academy of Journalism. He has worked for several publications as a photo reporter and picture editor. He was Director of Photography between 1995–2015 for an economic weekly, HVG and is currently Editor-in- chief of Digitális Fotó Magazin.
