I'm not a "graduate" photographer, I have no experience with photo schools or courses. It´s seven years back when I borrowed my dad´s camera and start shooting via technique called "trial and error". In 2013 I had the enormous luck to visit India and fulfill until then relatively utopian dream - observe and try to photograph wild creature whose charisma and natural beauty can´t be described by simple words, The Tiger! Since then, I try to come back every year. Not only that I want – I just have to! I love nature and animals as a whole but I am obsessed with top predators. The mainspring and big passion for me are definitely felines. I believe my greatest success so far is creation extensive portfolio of big cats pictures for which I am known, published and awarded in my home country, Czech Republic. I think I´m not typical wildlife photographer who shoots everything in every opportunity. I need some personal motivation and connection with photographed object for longer time in my photography so I am rather try to work in long-term "projects" and publish more photo-journal work then simple photography. Last year I started an ambitious project based on "dslr" camera trapping and got great results with Eurasian lynx in Czech Republic forests and few months ago I was successful in Mongolian mountains, where I managed to get a picture of the ghost itself - snow leopard! On these projects I am use to closely cooperate with local NGOs and various conservation organizations.
