I have been photographing for more than 15 years and I love nature and animals all my life. So it was natural to combine both of my these passions and become a wildlife and nature photographer. I traveled four continents and a number of biotopes from mountains and northern plains through European woods to tropical rainforests with my camera.
In 2015 I left well-established internet business and started to work as a freelancer. Most of my current activities are related to photography:
- I publish articles here on my blog (I started to write English articles recently) and on Paladix.cz (in Czech only)
- I published two successful e–books about Lightroom and Capture One (in Czech only)
- I publish regular inspirational newsletter Lepší fotky (in Czech only)
- I organize individual workshops
- I also prepared few video courses for internet television KurzyŽivě
- I am co-founder of well accepted photographic contest Czech Nature Photo and I was chairman of the jury of both previous years
