this is me...

Last update: 20.1.2011

You can find something about me as a photographer and about the photo services which I am offering on this web pages. There are also some informations about my favourite coffee, coffee rooms, the way how to take photographs and about traveling. The documentary photography, portrait photography or the photography of details was and still is together with traveling one of my the greatest interests. In spite of the fact to be originaly a technician the photography became a part of my life from from the childhood. Recently, I use to take photographs by the digital camera CANON 5D. Some of my favorite subjects are an architecture, architecture's details and a documentary photography. I like to take photos of rock art (petroglyphs) all over the world. I offen connect documentary photography with traveling and so as the photographer-traveler I can offer a set of slideshows from countries like Kirgyzstan, Russian Federation, Marocco, Spain or from the mountains of the East Siberia, Pamir, West Tien-Shan or Sudan.

Právě odtud mám zdokumentovaných několik lokalit skalního umění a jedny z nejkrásnějších vzpomínek na tamní pastevce. Kyrgyzská prezidentka se jmenuje Roza Otunbajevová a nám nezbývá než jim drzet palce.
