About Vonnagy: Markus Michael von Nagy

 

Kia Ora! My name is Mark and I welcome you to browse my New Zealand website. I hope you enjoy the images of this country, there is so much to see and photograph here - it is truly a photographers paradise!

I was born on December 27th, 1974 in Toccoa, Georgia in the US to an Austrian father and an American Mother. I was raised by my Viennese grandmother and I can still speak a bit of broken German with a "Wienerisch Dialekt". As a family we traveled a lot and I have many fond memories of traveling to Europe and across the United States. However, it wasn't until I took a three month holiday to Australia that the desire to live overseas was kindled. After the life changing trip to the fabled land down under, I applied for my residency visa. It took nearly two years to process; not to mention some bungling of papers by various lawyers, immigration agents and the thief who stole my passport three days after I was granted the visa!

So how did I end up in New Zealand?

I moved to this fabulous country on July 20th, 2002. I always get asked the question, "Why did you move to New Zealand" - to which I now reply "It was destiny!" I had originally planned to go to New Zealand on a holiday, before I started my job hunt in Sydney, Australia. A two week vacation ended up as two month vacation. After a while, I rented a tiny sleepout in Glendowie, Auckland and decided to stay put! I had found work as a contractor and then ended up getting a permanent job as programmer for a fantastic little web development company called Webenz.

So things just fell into place! I've met some great friends here and have had some incredible experiences. And of course, I've taken heaps of photos of New Zealand for you to enjoy!

All the Best!

Mark von Nagy
