My personal concert and festivals favorites of the year 2013

Photographically speaking, 2013 was definitely my best year so far, at least since I started this website in 2011 - there were so many good things happening, that I'm really thankful for. The highlights of the year include:

  • First, Recognitions - the year started great with some of my images getting to the finals and being commented at the Professional Photographer of the Year 2012 and Sony World Photography Awards 2013 competitions.
  • Then, Hospitalisation - in April I was diagnosed with the central serous retinopathy on my left eye and was hospitalised for 3 days, which in the end, turned out fantastic - I truly discovered smartphone photography resulting in my "My hospital eye(s)" article being published in "Black & White Photography magazine", "ReFoto magazine" and a great online magazine for photography PetaPixel. And the eye got better in the end :)
  • Skejtaj s srcem - this fundraising project got me on the road for one week across Slovenia with a buddy of mine Tomaž Praunseis who skated diagonally through the whole Slovenia, some 370 kilometres in total, raising funds for four Slovenian families that needs support in this hard times. The whole team had a brilliant time and helped the people in need while doing that - I think it can't get any better than that!
  • Festival Lent - shooting for Festival Lent in Maribor, largest outdoor festival in Slovenia and one of the largest in Europe, that lasted for 16 days (!) was a true test for a festival photographer junkie like I am. Enjoyed every minute of it, can't wait for the next one!
  • Summer festivals - I did not shoot so many summer festivals as I would like to (though, after more than two weeks of everyday shooting at Festival Lent I think I got the summer festival dosage I needed), but had a very good reason for that - birth of my firstborn son in early September! But me and my wife did not miss the Bažant Pohoda festival in Slovakia, probably our favourite festival of them all, for many different reasons.
  • Best of - live! exhibition - I was really honoured to have my third photo exhibition held in recently opened Photography Museum in Maribor; called "Best of - live!", it was a selection of my best live music related work from the last few years, featuring a variety of my concert photographs, from local bands to world known artists, from rock'n'roll to jazz, from small clubs to big music festivals.
  • Clients - same as the last years, I'm very grateful that I started some new and continued old clients relations (media, bands, promoters, festivals and organisations) resulting in my photos being published in numerous different magazines and websites throughout the world, with the last one being my photo of Warren Ellis (Dirty Three) published in a new book about Australian music scene called "Rock Country".

There are some exciting plans for the next year, but lets leave that a secret for now, shall we?

Thank you all so much for your support, see you around in the 2014, hope it's gonna be a great year for all of us! ;)
