Hong Kong & Macau (3/2020)
I grew up in the times of traditional photography. I started off as a complete amateur, using probably the most undependable cameras that have ever been developed – the Russian Smena cameras. I used to print my photographs in provisional cuvettes that I would lay down on the carpet in my own room. Then came the time for the „big” photography, in the literal sense of the term. Working with large format cameras and multi-room cameras, as well as learning how to operate the first digital scanner available in my country – these were quite big challenges for that time. The experience and knowledge that I gained back then, is something I find very useful until now. By the time first computers and digital cameras appeared on the market, I already had gathered a substantial portfolio and my enthusiasm for taking photographs was even bigger.
For many years, I’ve worked as a graphic design teacher and colour management consultant. I’m pretty sure I went through all the expertise levels and I experienced all the types of photography. Starting from the work at the studio, through advertising photography, portraits, to my favourite photographic reports and documentaries. Today, after more than 20 years of holding my camera, I’m not able to count all the photos I have taken. What I know, however, is that each of my journeys, from which I bring my photographic material, is special. And thanks to these images, each of these journeys remains in my memory for a long time. I cooperate permanently with the biggest photo agency, which is , and with (International Edition), for which I write articles and photograph places all over the world.

I know that the equipment doesn’t take photos by itself, but there is no denying that it helps a lot in difficult situations, which take place quite often during long expeditions. I’ve tried taking cameras such as Leica or Fuji with me, but my delight in the low weight of my backpack was gone very soon, once I had to take a photo that was nontypical. I say nontypical, because I take photos in many different places. Sometimes I need a telephoto, which enables me to shoot from a distance, sometimes I need a wide angle, and primarily something that will be useful in various types of settings - sport, nature or street, and reportage photos. I take the heavy luggage into account, it actually always exceeds 30kg, but the satisfaction that I get from taking a good picture, fully compensates for all the other inconveniences.
My main camera is now Nikon Z7, after long story with Nikon D5, and a set of prime and zoom lenses. I got used to Nikon lenses and after many experiments, I no longer use its “substitutes” like Sigma or Tamron, even though I am aware of the fact that some quite successful models have been released lately.

I get used to good and verified solutions pretty fast. For flying I use a DJI drone, I use GoPro sport cameras for filming, and what carries all this equipment is always the Manfrotto products, which survived even in the most difficult conditions. My favourite Pelican suitcase, in which I always carry more than the weight required by the airport, and the Black Rapid camera strap – it’s the perfect match.

For many years, nothing has changed here. It’s always the same set of products, with gradually improved new models. The only reasonable Apple MacBook Pro laptop and reference screen for photo processing, which is Eizo. That’s all I need.
