From earliest childhood, Endre Balogh has been an internationally known concert violinist. He spent much of his career touring the world, playing solo recitals, concertos with orchestras, and chamber music, working with such eminent musical luminaries as Zubin Mehta, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Vladimir Horowitz, and Andre Watts. In 2004, he severely curtailed his touring schedule to spend more time with his wife and children and rapidly began honing his passion for photography. Soon, he was winning top awards in contests and his unique aesthetic vision and reputation for consistently beautiful work earned him an enviable reputation among his photographic colleagues. His photos are prominently displayed in the collections of several connoisseurs of fine photographic and digital arts. In 2007, a solo exhibition of 47 of his photos ran for three months at the Karpeles Museum in Santa Barbara. His photo "Egg On Glass" was chosen from among nearly 3000 entries from 40 countries to be displayed with 87 others in the prestigious 2007 "Art of Digital" International Exhibition. His second showing of photographs - "Black and White In Bloom" - 20 large black and white flower photographs ran at the Karpeles Museum in 2010. An article written by Endre detailing his techniques for photographing flowers and illustrated by six photos from his collection was featured in the prestigious photographic magazine, Shutterbug's annual "Expert Photo Techniques Guide - 2010" with his photo of an Oriental Lily gracing the cover. Living in Los Angeles, he is a highly sought-after portrait, headshot, theatrical, and architectural photographer. He was named "Photographer Of The Year" for an unprecedented two years running (2012 and 2013) by the All Valley Professional Photographer's Association Several of his photos have been included in the Professional Photographers of America "Loan Collection" books. In the 2015 International Photography Competition, all four of his photos were chosen for the "Loan Collection" - making Endre one of only 35 photographers worldwide to receive the PPA/IPC "Diamond Award". Also in 2016 he was named the "Number Two" Photographer in California and was also awarded "Illustrative Photographer of 2015" and "Photographic Artist of 2015" by the California Professional Photographers Association. Additionally, he has been commissioned to create many commercial graphics projects, including six book covers.
