With Lisa in Sankeien Gardens

With Lisa in Sankeien Gardens

The spring was in the air, flowers and trees were starting to bloom, temperatures were rising - time for an outing to the all-year-long beautiful Yokohama Sankeien Gardens. This time it was with my dear friend Lisa. Her outfit matched the color scheme of an early spring garden perfectly and our fooling around resulted in an impromptu portrait session. ・Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama ・2019/03/20 UK Lanc

Olivia's Graduation Portraits

Olivia’s Graduation Portraits

Olivia's parents live in Japan and she studies last year in a university in the US. So when she visited her parents this winter, they asked me to take her portraits for the graduation announcements which will be sent out in May after she passes all her final exams. I call it a total trust in daughter's academic abilities :-) Again, it was freezing cold but Olivia was willing to pose only in her light sweater and a s

Femme Fatale

Femme Fatale

Yes, that what Malin is - the Femme Fatale. Beautiful, strong, brave and very creative Malin, my friend who looks just gorgeous in real life as well as on the photographs. We did this photo shoot at my home in the dining room, with a bit of wine and lots of laughs. It was a great and deep experience for me. For the first time I tried nude photography which unfortunately I can't show but it was a sweet surprise for Ma

Before Saying Good-bye

Before Saying Good-bye

Living in an international community, one has to get used to saying good-bye a lot. Before my friend Blanca left Japan, we headed to one of the most charming places in Yokohama, to the Sankeien gardens for her last photo shoot. She came all dressed in Japanese style, wearing yukata, geta sandals and her usual big smile on her face. It was a weekday, so the garden, normally full with people, was nearly all only for us

Milai in Zushi

Milai in Zushi

It's always a nice experience to do a photo shoot with Milai. She is an inspiring model, smart, gentle and fun. For this session we went to Zushi, did some outdoor and also indoor pictures and waited for night to come to do most pictures using fairy lights as the only light source. It was a new thing for me, quite difficult to get everything in focus but Milai was extremely patient and we got some nice shots. ・

Little Mermaid

Little Mermaid

Tessa has always reminded me of a little mermaid when I've seen her passing by the Middle school floor at my sons' school. I was excited when she agreed that our photo will take place on the beach. The sea suits to her natural beauty.

With The Best View

With The Best View

This year the harvest came much earlier than usually and even though it was not even mid August, the fields around my hometown Zlín were already empty. The weather forecast said a storm is coming and really, the dramatic sky made a very interesting contrast with the golden field. It made a great location for a photo shoot of this young fun family. They have chosen a place near their house with an iconic view of the

Rising Star

Rising Star

I've known this young man since his elementary school years. He's always stood out from the crowd and had multiple talents so it's not surprising he became a musician with promising career. It's been a delight to take his portrait while he was doing what he likes the most, playing music.

Sweet Sixteen

Sweet Sixteen

Natalie's mom and dad have been our family friends since high school, so when I and Natalie's mom found out we are pregnant at the same time, we were over the moon. Our first son and Natalie were born only 10 days apart. Whenever we all met, we always had the feeling that those two kids look alike. Well, we can't call them kids anymore. This young lady totally took my breath away when I saw her after a year this summ

There's a Forest Fairy living in the woods surrounding my hometown. But only in the summer, the rest of the year she pretends to be a teacher in a local school.
