Hi,

I have been professional photographer for over a decade.

Although I specialise in portraiture, I enjoy working on different kinds of projects. This helps me keep my mind fresh and open for new challenges.

Besides commercial work I develop personal documentary projects.

I hold Master of Arts with Honour degree at the Institute of Creative Photography on the Silesian University in Czech Republic.
