  • Za prvé a především – koho můžete jmenovat jako nejlepšího fotografa ve vašem městě? :)

    I think there is no one good answer. They are a couple of guys who took photos which I like, with a little different style but, still amazing for me.

  • Jste fotogeničtí?

    Definitely not.. I like taking photos of myself and my fiancee, especially on private tours, but I know how I'm looking at them. Maybe not like a monster heh, you can see that in my profile photo, but not as good as I could (want) :) Definitely I'm much more happy shooting photos of another people.

  • Jak jste se dostali do fotografického průmyslu?

    When I was a teenager my hobby was photography, because always there were analog cameras in my family, my brothers loved taking family pictures so I could use their equipment and also get addicted with it. While for them it remained in the hobby zone, for me it became a way of life and I decided to tie my future with photography. Not only with wedding photography, but mainly. Why weddings? I love to have contact with people, making new relationships, and I believe I'm doing something important for them. Something more important for bride and groom than for other clients while making another product pics for their company. For bride and groom my photo story of their wedding day will be a keepsake for life. They will watch them for decades, they will show them to their children and grandchildren. That is freaking awesome.

  • Jaké jsou podle vás nedůležitější součásti dobré fotografie?

    A couple of things are important for me. Firstly, it must look natural. Not every person is a photo model and know how to pose, so it is common that I must lead them. The trick is to make them look natural in the picture. Secondly, shoot the photo in right moment. Thirdly, show what you want at this photo in attractive form, it requires experience and good taste to know how to do it.

  • Cestujete rádi?

    Yes, I do :)

  • Co máte nejredši na vaší profesi?

    Independence. I do what I love and present events in my own way. I travel around the country, Europe, I meet new people all the time. And they pay me for it. What more could you want?
    PS. And – guess what – no one will fire me.

  • Co se vám líbí nejméně na vaší profesi?

    All summer weekends busy. You need to plan your vacation 2 years ahead, and you usually don't have time for it in summer time.

  • Jaká je budoucnost focení?

    I think that the only thing that will change is the equipment on which we work and the quality of photography. I hope that the rest will remain unchanged. Of course, everyone has their own style, new photographers are constantly appearing with new ideas, but it was and always will be.

  • Co je výjimečného na žánru fotografií, na který se specializujete?

    As I said before, for bride and groom my photo story of their wedding day will be a keepsake for life. They will watch them for decades, they will show them to their children and grandchildren. That is awesome.

  • Jak zvládáte kritiku?

    Positive criticism teaches. I have no problem with it.

  • Jsou nějaké trendy v oblasti focení?

    Yes, and they change over time. Something that was trendy 10 years ago today is not trendy anymore. Tomorrow trendy will be something else. I focus on natural photos in the best possible quality, I believe that such photos will always please the eye, regardless of the prevailing trends.

  • Jaké by měl mít zákazník kritérium při výběru fotografa?

    They should like his style and work. You can't expect from a hired photographer to take photos completely different from what he presents in his portfolio.

  • Co není dovoleno při focení?

    I believe that professionals know how to behave during a photo session. I do.

  • Jakých detailů, které obvykle projdou bez povšimnutí, si může fotograf všimnout?

    First of all, by pressing the shutter button the photographer knows what the final effect will look like. For outsiders, what a photographer does is not always obvious. So they need to trust him. A photographer's innate or learned asset has always been to see details that others did not pay attention to. It is important in our profession to have this skill.

  • Co ovlivňuje hodnotu fotografie? Jaké jsou její prvky?

    Quality, attention to detail, natural appearance, an original way of presenting a given situation.

  • Kdo může být podle vás symbolem 21. století?

    In photography? To be honest, I have no opinion about this. There are many talented people, I do not want to judge someone better than others just because this person's style suits me best.

  • Co chcete fotit?

    First of all, people who want to be photographed and appreciate my work and style. Happy people.

  • Máte nějaké profesní tabu?

    No. I took photos in very... very different situations. A good photo will be a good photo, no matter how, when or where it was taken.

  • S kým byste chtěli fotit?

    I'd love to meet many photographers, not just one. I don't have one favorite. I like to gain new experiences and get to know other people's point of view, so the more photographers I meet in my life, the better for me.

  • Čeho se bojíte a proč?

    Now? I'm a bit hungry, I'm going to eat something; P

  • Jaký byl nejpůsobivější okamžik ve vašem životě?

    My life was strewn with logs thrown at my feet. Sooner or later most of the wonderful moments were paid for with negative events. Such a bad luck in life. That is why I do not look back, just look to the future.

  • Pokud byste byli animovaná, literární nebo filmová postava, kdo byste byli a proč?

    Confusion of Sid from Ice Age and Dr. House.

  • Jak byste definovali úspěch? Jak ho měříte?

    Appreciating your work in your industry. Financial stability. Happy family. All at once.

  • Byli byste raději oblíbení nebo respektovaní?

    Both. If I had to choose, I would choose respect.

  • Jaká je největší chyba, kterou jste kdy v práci udělali?

    Restrictions and, consequently, the slowdown of my professional career by orders or bans of the person whom I thought was most important for me. Advice? If you surround yourself with people who don't support you but limit you, change the environment. As quickly as you can.

  • Když cestujete, co si berete s sebou a proč?

    My other half, because it's brighter together. A phone with a good camera, because the best camera is the one you always have with you.

  • Existuje něco, co byste si byli raději nekoupili z vašich pomůcek, které vlastníte? A proč?

    No, I carefully analyze all purchases, I don't buy unnecessary items. Especially things that will not fulfill their task.

  • Jak se vzděláváte, abyste pořidili lepší fotografie?

    I watch the work of others to get inspired, I'm reading about new products and trends, and above all, I pick up the camera and take more pictures. Experience is the key.

  • Čí práce vás ovlivnila nejvíce jako fotografa?

    Photographers' works, which left much to be desired in my and other opinions. They taught me what not to do.

  • Jedna věc, kterou byste si přáli vědět, když jste začínali s focením?

    Learning is the key. Learn much. There are many photographers with weak technical skills. Be better. Find your style. Always try to take better pictures. Do not give up. Accept criticism. And above all, respect yourself and your work. Photography is a great profession, but there are many talented photographers, so you will have to work hard to stand out.

  • Co byste rádi řekli skrze vaše fotografie?

    I want people watching them to have a smile on their faces. The message depends on the type of photography. In wedding photography I want to give my clients the best story of their most important day in their life.

  • Co vás motivuje v dalším focení?

    Many things like the opportunity to see more great places and meet many more great people. The obvious motivation is to be better and, one day, the best in my profession.
