About
I am offering a unique first-hand experience of a mesmerising 170-years-old photographic technique called wet plate collodion. No digital camera hidden inside a decrepit bellows - this is the real deal, 100% handmade original photographs on tin plates that will last for many generations (and perhaps confuse a future archeologist or two). By booking with me you will not only get an everlasting memory of you time spent in Prague, but also experience the magic of 19th century photography in real life and gain an understanding of how difficult yet rewarding photography was back then. I am an experienced portrait and documentary photographer with a small studio at Malá Strana, the Lesser Side, in the very heart of old Prague. I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients from all over the world. My works was awarded with several prizes including two 1st place awards at Czech Press Photo (Portrait, Arts).

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

    A fun experience & a photo that we will cherish forever. We stumbled across this studio next to our hotel and are so glad that we did! It was also really fun to learn about the Victorian camera and get to watch our photo develop before our eyes! Highly recommend!

    A dive into the past
    We discovered Honza’s studio from the internet and we happened to get there during our trip in Prague. His lab was very authentic and he was able to made us partecipate in the whole process of printing photos on a metal surface. Honza’s lab is an unconventional place where you can dive into the past.

    Great experience with beautiful picture
    With us, 20 selfies fail, Honza can create a beautiful photowork of art with 1 click with a 200 years old camera. Honza takes plenty of time to take a good photo. He explains the entire process to you and takes the time to highlight the details. We are amazed by the details, patience and work of Honza. It's definitely worth your money! We are happy with our photoplate and prints. Highly recommended!

Honza is such an impressive photographer, a true artist and a super kind and fun person. You can see immediately that he puts his whole heart in his work. His technique is unique and the pictures are just magic! They look even more impressive in real life! We had a great evening with Honza and could follow his steps as he prepared and later developped the photographs. This was such a great experience, and now we are very happy with the pictures and treasure them alot! :) We will be happy to be back one day! If you are gonna have even just one portrait taken in your life, make sure it‘s gonna be at Honza‘s studio!

Honza is great artist and professional. He taught me about his craft, let me watch the process, and created a finished product that I'm very pleased with. His studio is also an interesting space, accessible and easy to find. He's clearly a talented man who puts a lot of time and effort into his art. I recommend him to everyone and will certainly contact him again in the future the next time I want a portrait done.

You can't get a better memory to take home from Prague that one of these amazing portraits! Honza is super cool to work with and is a master of one of the oldest photographic methods in the world. It's a mix of art and science, with a little alchemistic magic thrown in.

You watch as Honza makes the photo plate, then sit for a quick portrait, then see the portrait develop before your eyes. It is so cool!

And then you get to take home a portrait with shadows and light so deep that it's almost 3-D. The portrait will last for generations.

Do not miss doing this. It's just under Prague Castle in a little winding street.

We got two portraits with our dogs last time in Prague and will treasure them always.

Saki (as old friends call him) has not changed since we met on highschool 25 years ago. Buddy with specific skills, interests and opinions able to be absolutely focused on what is he doing.

It was really pleasure spent some time in Saki’s atelier with my kids and got amazingly looking photo produced by photographic process from the 1850s called wet plate collodion.

If you are still looking for any xmas presents, stop doing that and visit studio located in the historic centre of Prague (Malá Strana). You will take away an unforgettable experience and stunning metal sheet.

On our trip to Prague, we were lucky to meet Honza in his photo studio. It was an amazing experience and beautiful tintype pictures at the end. Honza is a true artist. With a lot of passion and love for photography, he showed us all the steps of making our portrait plates with a technique that is more than a hundred years old. We experienced the whole process from the beginning to the magic moment. And Honza takes his time to get to know us. So that in the end something special emerges. Thank you Honza for this great day in Prague.

We had a joint portrait taken and were so entranced by the alchemy and so impressed by Honza's skill and passion that we immediately booked to go back to have individual author portraits done the next day. All three are marvellous images and it was a privelege to spend time with Honza and to be shown this extraordinary and authentic process.
