Having an old camera taking a black and white portrait of us was a fun, interesting experience. The photographer, Honza, was an interesting wonderful person to meet. He explained his technique. We did not feel hurried and could enjoy the moment.

Very talented artist who makes you think not only about the way the photography arises, but also about the meaning hidden in visual aspects of photo art. His personal approach gives the session unexpected frame. I´m convinced, he will have very successful future. Highly recommended.
