During that time László photographed many films and TV dramas that went on to win international awards including “Best German TV Drama” at the German TV Awards, the Bavarian Film Awards Best Production Prize, the German Film Awards Cinematography prize, and the Critics Prize at the San Sebastian International Film Festival. László took the leap into the world of advertising and within two years he became an extremely busy and sought after Director/DoP. His first work for Mercedes Benz won German Art Director Club Gold and was shortlisted at the Cannes Lions Festival. László has worked in all corners of the world and speaks Hungarian, German, English and French. He has lived in Germany, France and Poland. In the course of his career, László has shot over 200 commercials for major international brands.

He has demonstrated a mastery of both beautiful in-camera simplicity and fiendishly complex, post-heavy CGI.
