ABOUT ME

I shoot landscapes

My name is Marek Ondráček and I started photographing in ... No, that's not really what it's about. Important is, that my whole journey as a photographer is closely related to the landscape and the nature itself. Year after year, I've been becoming more aware of the importance, fragility and variability of the nature, and I also care about the influences and processes that form and shape it. More and more I discover and realize its hidden effect on the people, as well as the action of man, which have an impact on her. Within photography, I try to be open and I don't avoid shooting other genres, but in the end I always return to my favorite landscapes theme. As a child of a big city, I have a need to more and more seek quietness and loneliness in the nature. My try to capture it the best I can goes with it hand in hand.

With my long-time friend and also photographer Milan Strachota, we created (or revived) the project Fotitelé.cz. This is primarily an Instagram project, which includes photos that capture mostly a particular atmosphere of places and do not fit into our regular portfolios. Despite rather slow gradual beginnings, today we see it as a very independent and special project, and we increasingly appreciate the photos included in it.

Professional shooting

However is landscape photography my hobby and passion, I have always been particular about opennes to other genres, so I've got experiences also in shooting real estates, portraits, products, conferences, weddings etc. I therefore shoot professionally as well and I am open to cooperation within the aforementioned (and after all, other as well) genres. Whether I shoot for joy or based on contract, it has to be something I enjoy, so I could deliver fully professional results, which I am particular about.

MY GEAR

Since 2015, my photography path has been strongly associated with Olympus company, in which I gratefully work as a product specialist and trainer. Thanks to this, new horizons have opened up for me both in terms of photographic techniques and knowledge, as well as greater openness to photography genres and motives. It has also enabled me to lead photographic workshops, giving me the chance to share my experience and help others to improve what they enjoy, which makes sense to me like nothing else.
