About me

Passionate fine art photographer
Who am I really?

Currently based in Košice, Slovakia, which was also the place where I started with photography in 2010, I am specializing in dog and pet photography in general. Evolving through years and meeting new people that got me further, I can guarantee satisfaction with every photo.

I am also active in other genres as I have experience in concert, wedding, portrait and landscape photography, which is sometimes a nice runaway from stereotype that can only 1 genre bring and stop your creativity from flowing.

Animals are special to work with, you cannot tell them how to pose or what you want from them. Also their level of training depends on what type of shot one gets as a result. To help capture their true potential, personality and soul, I am using multiple options to get their attention. Toys and treats are the most common ones as they obviously work the best.

For postprocessing I usually go for realistic look, however more dream-like, artistic look is also quite common among the photographs achieved by lightroom and photoshop.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe everyone is unique and deserves unique approach. Everyone has different personality, different look or behavior. It is up to me to find the best way to put this uniqueness into picture and I decided not to stop at “good enough” and therefore I constantly learn new ways to portray the very soul of the one I photograph.

My goals that came true
Achievements

Even though I am not seeking contests, there are some things I achieved over the years.

Photo exhibited in Vienna, Austria

Another Gurushots success, this time with “Solo subject” challenge with slightly different rules.

Handpicked photo by staff on Viewbug

As with Gurushots, I found other websites I wanted to give a try to. So I found Viewbug and slowly started posting some photos there.

  • Jumping into Friday again!⁣
This photo brought me a lot of surprises, it's also an overall winning photo in "wolves" photo contest on @viewbug from August 2018. It was a little surprising as I didn't expect it to win. So even if you think you can't achieve something, don't be afraid to make the leap, what's the worst thing apart starting again that can happen? ⁣

  • It was a moody day, overcast and looked like it will rain anytime. While I was walking by a lake I saw him just as he was going to take a sip from this dark water. He didn't notice me and I was just watching while almost not breathing to not scare him. As he finished drinking, everything ended, he walked back into the forest, water again perfectly still just as it never happened.⁣
A silence of the forest.⁣
Again, this was a really nice experience, with another great location for shooting as the lake is really black due to its bottom, while cub was cooperating like pro 🙃⁣ PS: screw Instagram and the outage 😂

  • Did you have an opportunity to see a wolf in the wild before? Sadly I did not have such luck, but I will gladly hear stories from you! Post them down in the comments! ✍️⁣

  • This little guy was always so close and it was almost impossible to capture him with a longer lens as he also changed places really often, so it was quite an advantage for me as I had only 85mm lens with me 😂⁣

  • I mean, photographing this creature showed me so much more than I thought, that there are many aspects to a nice photo. That you don't need a huge lens to capture a photo with a big meaning for you and still nail it.⁣

  • This series is from a workshop that took place in Czechia and I must tell you, it was an awesome experience, so magical, majestic and cute at the same time.⁣
This little wolf was just pure joy, playful and absolutely photogenic (my profile pic here is with him haha). However he was still wolf by nature with all his instincts.⁣
