I’m photographer and all-round videographer with longterm professional interest in music concerts, festivals and other various cultural and social events. During the years I have gathered experience on how to shoot promotional photos and videos, after movies, short documentaries, reportage photography and educational videos. I have been honored to maintains a longterm cooperation with many prestigious non-governmental organisations and public institutions including Charles University in Prague, Vaclav Havel Library, World Roma Festival Khamoro, Slovo 21, Youths Tune Jazz, Freedom Festival, Romea, ARA ART, AAD – German academic exchange service and others.
I worked full-time at the Vaclav Havel Library, a center for the documentation and research of modern Czech history with an emphasis on promoting the ideas and works of Václav Havel: playwright, fighter against totalitarianism, leader of the 1989 Velvet Revolution and former Czechoslovak and Czech president. There I was responsible for technical realization of the audiovisual project/internet television Havel Channel, which I helped launch in 2020. It focuses mainly on live streaming of political and social debates, interviews, live music sessions and educational projects. It was a creative job that improved me technically and also developed my skills in production and management of a smaller team.
The experience of creating an audio-video studio from scratch, gave me the ability to see projects from different points of view. I gained extensive technical skills, I learned how to motivate my team and found out ways how to communicate with guests from all spheres of public life from heads of states and successful entrepreneurs to alternative musicians and activists. On top of that, I learned to work under pressure – during complicated live streamed events with remotely connected speakers and simultaneous translations, music events etc.
