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

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.

This young lady totally took my breath away when I saw her after a year this summ

Traditional South Moravian Costumes

Traditional South Moravian Costumes

South Moravia is a land of wine, colors and very hospitable, warm people. It's also a place where traditions are still alive. The people are proud of their traditional costumes which are treated with care and respect. I was very lucky to get to photograph the process of putting on all the different layers of the traditional costume. It was magical, like a ritual. Although this place is not too far from where I was bo
