Mitja Kobal is an independent professional photographer born in Slovenia , now based in Vienna, Austria.
I'm working across several fields of photography as the passion to photography is just too deep and sizzling for me to focus (in)to a single niche. I love to observe and wonder about the world, my surroundings and the people.
I've been freelancing as Greenpeace photographer for few years, and since this year I became a firm part of it. It's always a pleasure to do and live what you love and to do it with a cause.
