My Bio

My hometown is Brno in Czech Republic and I've been doing photography for almost ten years. A relevant photography I would say, my first experiments with small cameras are little bit of the older date.

Photography genre of my choice is definitely landscapes even though portraits made most of my photography income over the years. I definitely enjoy taking pictures of people, there is something very satisfying about it, but nature is a little bit closer to my heart :-).

I'm always amazed with such a magical sceneries like moments before sunrise when sun is climbing over the horizon or the foggy autumn forest where you can smell soil and old leaves. There are many obvious and also not so obvious beauties in nature. Wandering around, observing, trying to find and capture those moments became the reason why I'm so in love with nature and landscape photography. It's hard to put it into words, simply there is something very satisfying about this.

Happy and creative new year my fellow deviants

Happy and creative new year my fellow deviants

Hard to say how it is like somewhere else, but here in Czech Republic we have unusually warm winter. It's cloudy all the time, few degrees above zero so it's basically impossible to shoot outdoors and have a good light. I'm not complaining, don't get me wrong, I don't have any pleasure in freezing cold, but it's just strange and photographer in me wants a few winter pictures, just one or two... :-). So, it's two days to end of the year (gosh, the 2013 gone too quick) so I would like to wish all of you a lot of inspiration in whatever you do and steady personal growth. We, the creative people, are able to create beautiful things and this wond

Autumn

I'm so in love with this time of year.Temperatures are on their average, "not so cold, not so hot" perfect scale, forests are becoming colourful and morning mist, that's what I like the most. Morning walks in the forest, everything is hazy and all around you can feel some kind of strange calm and silence, nature is preparing for definitive sleep. From this sceneries come my most beloved pictures and in the near future I'm going to post some new ones. I hope you will like them as much as I do :-). Have a nice weekend folks and enjoy this beautiful time of the year :-)
