The creator of FlexShooter ball-heads studied to be a maths-physics teacher in his younger years. He then worked in the family manufacturing business designing and creating metal furniture. Then, as a keen sport pilot, he was a member of the Hungarian Aerobatic Team, check this video out!
At the same time he developed his love for wildlife photography and in 2007 won the prestigious Nature Photographer of the Year in his native Hungary. With his longing for perfection in flying aerobatic manoeuvres, or in taking that perfect wildlife image, it was not a surprise that he would turn his talents to designing innovative solutions for photographers worldwide.
Struggling to find the perfect tripod-head to take on his photographic expeditions worldwide, he became one of the inventors of the double ball-head. He discovered that he could combine his passion for manufacturing with his love of solving mechanical problems together to produce something amazing for photographers. Always wanting to strive for perfection, he kept working on new ideas, striving for the perfectly working flawless design and using 3D Geometry to create the most aesthetic and practical shape.
"We may never achieve perfection, but by chasing it, we can be so close, that sometime it seems we are there. Then, we find the faults and set new challenges with their solutions. I wants to provide the most usable and flexible tripod-heads without compromise, so that photographers worldwide can forget about stability and concentrate on making great images:"
The FlexShooter product range is the result of all this hard work, a fusion of innovative patented technology with sound manufacturing principles.
A professional wildlife photographer and the FlexShooter evangelist. Our power photographer, Andy has been using FlexShooter products around the world since the very beginning. Known for his zero tolerance approach to failure and an expectation for everything to "just work without hassle" he has used our products in the toughest environments, literally from pole to pole!
Recently Andy has been using the FlexShooter Pro head to shoot stills and video in India for his next book on wild tigers...
In his words "Ever since I saw the first prototype I have been the evangelist for these amazing heads. They work. They give me flexibility in a durable and portable head, where I can trust it 100% to hold my kit on place. Whether I am shooting landscapes with a 24mm lens or tigers with a 600mm lens, I can trust the heads 100% to hold my kit on place, poised and ready for action, no wasted time locking up, no compromise. I have taken my FlexShooter system around the world, as you can see here and it never leaves my kit bag:"
