—Po prvé a predovšetkým - koho môžete vymenovať ako najlepšieho fotografa vo vašom meste? :)
—It depends on who you ask.
In 2015 I was WPJA photographer of the year – worldwide.
—Ako ste sa dostali do fotografického priemyslu?
—After working 7 years as a photojournalist and another 7 years as an architect I decided to become full-time wedding photographer.
—Aké sú podľa vás najdôležitejšie súčasti dobrej fotografie?
—The strong content.
—Čo máte najradšej na vašej profesii?
—For me the best thing to do in life is shooting weddings.
—Sú nejaké trendy v oblasti fotografie?
—There are, but I don't believe in them. I don't like trends. They come and go. For me, photography should be timeless. So I practice nice colors and black & white photographs with strong content.
—Aké by mal mať zákazník kritérium pri výbere fotografa?
—I always say to my clients – think about what will your kids see in your wedding album, when they will get married after 20/30 years.
—Aké detaily, ktoré zvyčajne prejdú bez povšimnutia, si môže fotograf všimnúť?
—A good photographer can capture beautiful photos of the couple but also the hidden/small moments that no one sees. A good photographer can capture the 'making of' at the same level as the 'must be' photos.
—Koho chcete fotografovať?
—I've photographed Hollywood movie stars, super-rich people, politicks,... but also very normal couples. For me is the same. It's not about what the people are or do, the wedding is about the love between two souls.
—Aký bol váš najpôsobivejší okamih v živote?
—In personal life – definitely my kids birth. In professional career – winning the Photographer of the year 2015 title by Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). Another huge moment was speaking in front of almost 2000 people at the Wedding Brasil conference in Sao Paulo.
—Kto vás vo vašom živote inšpiruje a prečo?
—My wife and my kids. They are my biggest inspiration. My son is a very talented football player. Daughter is a national champion in saxophone. And my wife – I'd never be where I am without her!
—Čo robíte vo svojom voľnom čase?
—I love trail running. So I try to spend as much time in nature and mountains as possible. Now and then I also make something from wood.
