I'm taking pictures since my 18th birthday. That was the day I laid my hands on my first camera.
Since these very beginnings I'm taking mainly street and documentary photos, but recently I started to be interested also in portrait or artistic nude. I admit that I don't have much experience in those genres, but I can build upon my general photography experience and my former profession of graphic designer.
I use film cameras almost exclusively (35mm and mid-format). I like traditionally looking pictures with ambient lighting. I also think that the model must have some natural talent for posing and acting. I don't believe it's all and only photographer's skill that makes for a great portrait.
I'd prefer to shoot TFP with Model Release. I usually put the pictures into my portfolio, sometimes exhibit them in a gallery or publish them otherwise, and MR would prevent misunderstandings between me and the model.
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in any kind of cooperation. I'm located in Prague (Czech Republic) but I travel a lot in Europe & sometimes to USA. In 2016 I plan on visiting Salt Lake City, NYC and Miami, southern France, Pyrenees, and many other places - once I know when, I will write it down and we can do some heavily improvised shooting.
Bottom line: I also collect cameras and have close to 100 pieces in my collection. The oldest one is foldable medium format Kodak from 1906 and among the newest are such late-film-days legends as compact Olympus mju-I. For picturetaking I use mostly 60s-80s Nikons, but most of my cameras are usable too... or I can use them as a decoration in the pictures.
