On The Spot

"Bence Mate is fanatic. He is obsessed with looking for ethereal and beautiful, cruel and dramatic moments of birds. He and his team spend months to thoroughly prepare for an image, and then he gets into one of his hides where he keeps waiting for that one single, perfect fraction of a second: the perfect shot. The outcome is breathtaking."
- Cseke Eszter, S. Takács András

Dr. Zsolt Kalotas

"His innovative vision, ideas, and astonishing technical solutions have reformed the practice of bird photography completely, and his achievements have proven that animals are worth photographed in action and showing their characteristic behaviour. From ethological point of view, interesting and rare moments typical to him are presented in special lighting, from extreme perspective. He is an ever renewing, style-making photographer. “
- Dr. Zsolt Kalotas

My friend, Bence is one of the most focused and precise persons I have ever known. He is someone who you can learn from, and all this knowledge is well worth. Being beside him one can see and understand how something becomes a creation of international standard.
