Me in the world
Sometimes I call myself a man of the world: I live in Prague, in the Czech Republic, but I shoot weddings, love story, family and individual photo shoots in Europe, Russia and other countries. Push the boundaries of your consciousness — call me where you want to see me — believe me, anything is possible.
