About me

I am an explorer, who is looking for new places, topics and new experiences, but not least new way to think. I often walk alone in my own way, trying to avoid a previously used path just because I strongly believe we need to experience more and more. Every time I fail, I learn and I start again my process. I go further and further until I reach something new and unexpected. I always wanted to know the answer to “how?” and “why?”. Now I am trying to answer these questions with my pictures. I am a very curious person, and as a photojournalist, I am eager to tell stories about any topics around the globe – environment, culture, and conflict, in particular being my core interests. I see immense potential in narratives within the topics of endangered cultures in the ever-changing political landscape of the world, as well as in cultural phenomenon that gains sudden popularity. I believe that us humans need powerful visual stories in order to strengthen the connections between different cultures. I’m not a conceptual photographer, rather I am one who notices and reacts. I have a passion for establishing an immediate contact with my surroundings, which I then transform into visual stories in my journalistic works. My ability to serve as an observer helps me to perform in any situation at any time. I collect inspiration and topics for my projects through adventures such as travelling and mountaineering. The main focus for me is to offer current stories to news agencies from whichever region I am involved with and to keep the stories alive on the air.

My mission is to show a different side of our world to people who are not able to see it and answer their questions with my pictures.

My name is Tamás Sóki, I was born in 1993 in Pécs, Hungary. During my high school studies, I started to work as a photojournalist for Axel Springer Hungary after I got the chance to show my abilities at Hungarian News Agency as a regional photojournalist.  In 2015 I graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Budapest, where I studied photography BA, after it, I attended to Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest and Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture where I’m completing my MA. I actually work as a freelance photojournalist and as an applied photographer to create unique materials for my customers.
