I don’t feel as an artist, I’m more of a creator. I’m lucky to do what I love and I do my best every time. I believe this is the only way to move forward. I’m trying to do these things in a different way, but it’s worth it, right? .. :)


  • Portraits, glamour photo, nudes, band promo, corporate portraits etc.
  • Photo workshops for begginers, about my glamour photos, editing photos,..
  • I shoot even weddings, family photos and some other usual occasions :)


  • Live videos from band shows
  • Videoclips
  • Live session videos (with Black Tone Music team)
  • Weddings/family/corporate videos


  • Recording and mixing of live concerts
  • Home studio recording
  • Also mix and mastering

I love photo shooting. The way people’s eyes speak to you through the pictures, it is something why I fell in love with it. I’ve been photographing for 9 years now. Currently I am using an old Nikon D700 digital SLR camera, a 50 mm single lens and natural light. I am quite happy with that :)

Mostly I shoot glamour, it is the style in which I can feel natural. I do not shoot only NUDE photos. However, these photoshoots I like the most..


BTM is music live session show, which I dreamed up. I used to watch foreign bands playing live in various studios and places. The more I watched these videos, the more I loved them until it came to the moment I wanted to create new Youtube show. Even if we didn’t have enough experience of filming or recording bands, we could represent the best new bands. Half a year later the first video was online and now we have about 19 episodes done and we enjoy it a lot – especially I do :)

What do I do in BLACK TONE MUSIC: Besides the fact that I dreamed up this live session, I am mainly a sound engineer here. In fact I do filming sometimes and directing offcourse.. in the post I am mixing the sound of recordings, editing video partly, the official website and social networks.

In summer 2016, almost exactly a year after we started Black Tone Music, I had already some experiences with sound engineering, I recieve an offer to sound engineer in small music club in Boskovice. Few months later we had an opportunity to take over the club completely and September 1st we did so. We have planned reconstruction for one month (optimistic, huh?). Luckily with great effort and thanks to all of our friends and comrades we managed to reopen „Sklepy“ October 1.

Having our own music club, organizing concerts, interaction with bands and being a sound engineer for live shows, making program etc.. That was another part of my dreams, which I have now successfully achieved. It’s very challenging – more than I have ever imagined, but it’s absolutely divine. The only thing left is to teach young people in the area to go again to young band’s shows, but I’m an optimist. We run the club with love and care and I hope it’s gonna be successful. :)

WHAT DO I DO IN THE CLUB: I take care about the program, seek for new cool bands and then I communicate with them, but mainly I am front of house sound engineer.

Like Sklepy, our music club, the Musician Factory in my life appeared probably due to Black Tone Music. After the first couple of episodes came out in the spring of 2016, Majkláč (founder Bandzone.cz) emailed me that he would like to film entertainment internet educational program for musicians, and he liked what we were doing and asked if we are able to help him with this new thing. I like the idea very much! I’d like to be there just sitting and listening, because it’s that amazing! Majkláč is capacity, great and positive person with whom I share a lot of points of view and at the same time it is someone from whom I can learn a lot and be inspired + with his capabilities it was clear, from the beginning, that we will have the opportunity to meet many interesting people from music industry. Dreamy.

What do I do in MUSICIAN IN FACTORY: Technical side of things, the team directing, taking care of the sound. In the post(?) then I mix the sound completely and cut video filmed.. :)

Video recording is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Particularly the moment in my life, when besides photography and playing drums with my band appeared youtube show BTM and music club Sklepy, I got a feeling that’s a lot to tell about and I wanted to record it all!

    After high school, looking for work, I feel that I am not able work for someone.. Secretly picking savings and buying new camera. I am a photographer!

    I got a feeling that it is so much going on around me, it would be a shame to just let it all flow!

    I’ve had so much planned, but if there’s something I really want .. That would be buying a Chevy Van G20, move in and go where the wind just blows me :)



Not only this website, but everything I do in my life, I try to do it in a way to make happy not only myself but also the people around me. I love it when I can do something great for you to please you .. whether it would be photos, video, audio, or anything else.

I hate the system. I’m tired of money, I’m tired of hypocrisy, playing on the fact that someone means more than someone else. Everything I do I try to do as good as I can and I think that is the only way to make life around me better.

Whether you just watch me, or you’re the one from whom I can do something beautifull, it is great you’re here reading this even if it’s horribly translated. Much respect to you. Thank you! ❤
