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.

Thank you, Honza, for such a valuable experience. We highly recommend spending time in Honza’s atelier, you will get one photo which can tell a lot more than tousands photos in your mobile phone. You can see whole proces of tintype photography and enjoy beautiful time in the heart of Mala Strana in Prague.
Final photo is more than exceptional.

We entered Fotograf na Plech spontaneously while walking around Prague. Our attention was drawn to beautiful, artistic photos from the street shop window and we felt that we would like to have similar ones as well. Honza - the photographer professionally told us about the nineteenth century equipment, and then guided us through the entire process of creating photography. While posing, Honza took care of our comfort and good atmosphere (it is crucial). I recommend this whole experience, because apart from the fact that we have a unique photo, a great souvenir from Prague, we also took a piece of new knowledge and good memories ♥ ️

It was a great experience, seeing the process of tintipe photography and even being a part of it. We first visited him some years ago to see his artistic work and we became fans immediately. So we decided to make a portrait of us. Honsa is a wonderful and patient person with a good eye and great empathy. He easily understood our wishes for the photo and created a true piece of art for us. We can recommend Honsa as an artist, photographer and as a great person.

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.

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!

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.

I have wanted a portrait in general. What better way than to get a classic photo on a tin plate using tried and true analogue techniques. Honza is great and extremely knowledgable in his profession (read: art). He told me to smile and it made the picture look amazing. I will be back again when I return to Prague.

You get your photo taken like they did back in the 1800s, using an authentic 1800s camera. The photo is made on a tin plate, which means a unique look + an everlasting quality (will not fade out).
Honza (the owners) is a really great guy, and gets the best out of you while taking the photograph.
In addition, he also explains and shows the process of making the photo (before and after the shot), which is really interesting.
