About this pro

Photography is a complex medium, and only one photograph could picture the whole period of time, sets of beliefs, or way of living. One photograph could change the perception and make us see something in a different color.

My job as a teacher is not only to teach a student how to make a good shoot, but also how to make a meaningful shoot and tell the whole story through it. I like to show my students a way to look for a shoot, how to capture the moment and how to tell their truth through the lens, by incorporating their creative side, imagination, and knowledge of photography techniques.

Constant learning and an open possibility for exploring is what I really love when it comes to photography. No photography job is the same, and I love it that way because it makes it challenging.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first class is introductory- and always free! I like to meet with the person, discuss their photography background, and go through the student's work (if applicable). After the first class and summing up student's interests and desires, I make an individual curriculum that I adjust by need.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I had the honor of studying photography at two great schools- FAMU in Prague, Czech Republic (top 10 in the world), and the School of Journalism, University of Montana.

How did you get started teaching?

I always loved teaching and teaching photography became my passion from the first day. I find it easy to transfer the knowledge and recognize where possible blocks lay, plus I love sharing everything I know. I found the way to walk the student through the topics in a clear, interesting, creative, and inspiring way.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students with various photography backgrounds.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Don't settle for less. If you don't have a good connection and understanding with your teacher, try a new one.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

In my humble opinion, photography is more about doing than thinking, so I would like my students to focus more on taking photos and making mistakes than on thinking the questions through. Students should feel free to ask any photography oriented question at any time.
