About me

I was born on 30th January 1986. Fifteen years later I got my first camera – an aged Praktika MTL5. At a later time I bought a new DSLR Canon EOS 350D and thanks to the FotoAparát.cz photoserver I got addicted to magic of photography. Via this server I found a lot of friends who I meet at photo-meetings or at photo-trips among the mountains. Since the beginning my specilazation has been clear – the nature surrounding me in all its forms especially focused on The Giant Mountains (Krkonoše). After entering the 3rd Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University I came into the world of reportage photography with the "Oves Baci" project, whereby I try to bring the life of medical students closer to publicity. On the present I also work as an editor of the FotoAparát.cz server, where you can find my lens tests or short photo-guides for The Giant Mountains. In days to come I am about to develop in both landscape and reportage photography. I hope you would like to reenter this webpage on account of my photographic work.
