Your photographs are of course NOT public by default. All photos presented on this website are published only with prior consent of the models.

(MUA means a Make-Up Artist)
In all cases, immediately after the shooting end you will receive all of the photos taken.
Number of retouched photos means how many photos (that will be chosen by you) will be professionally corrected, including skin correction, background fixes, color adjustments etc. It doesn’t include background replacement and similar advanced modifications as you can find in the Photomanipulation gallery. If you wish to retouch more photos than specified in the respective package, it is possible to do so for 200 CZK/photo.
If is possible to arrange a make-up artist to create a photo make-up of your choice and optionally do a basic hair styling. If you don’t require hair styling, the price is reduced by 200 CZK.
There is a reservation deposit fee of 400 CZK (200 CZK is the make-up artist will not be present). If the photoshoot is cancelled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance, the fee is returnable. In case the photoshoot is cancelled less than 24 hours in advance or in the case of no show, the fee will be forfeited.

If you would like to take a look at the video from a photoshoot, here it is:
Not at all, it is very common! The experience surely helps, but even on the first photoshoot there are virtually always good photos. I will be giving you tips on how to improve the current posture etc.
Do not be afraid of bad photos, unusable shots are common even for experienced models. But thanks to the digital technologies the failed takes are not a problem anymore – the result is immediately visible and can be easily improved in the next shot.
Usually the whole photoshoot consists of the following steps:
Usually it is feasible to use 2 to 4 sets of outfits per one hour.
It is a good idea to take shoes with higher heels for at least some of the photos. The heels make legs appear longer and force the model to stand with curved back, which looks elegant.
The next tips depend on the type of photos you want to do, for example:
Anyway, use the lines above as an inspiration and not as an necessity, we can improvise with anything!
The professional photomake-up is different from a daily one, mostly because it is more pronounced (the photographic lights will soften it). The make-up artist (MUA) is not necessary on all photoshoots, but her work can give take the photographs to another level. If the MUA will be present, please come without the make-up. In case the hair will be altered too, it is a good idea to not wash the hair in the day of shooting.
Creating the make-up takes about half an hour and the hair styling again about the same time. (This is an additional time to the times in the table above.) The MUA will take care of you before the photoshooting and then will leave, the make-up is durable enough to survive throughout the session.
Depends on the current number of projects. Arranging a session about a week in advance is possible in practically any time of year. Generally, it is better to arrange at least three days in advance, so there is a time to contact a make-up artist and prepare everything. (If you need it quicker, it might be possible too, but please use the phone instead of e-mail.)
I use professional DSLR Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II, both having over 20 megapixels, and high-end lenses. All photos from the photoshoot and the appropriate number of retouched photographs will be in maximum size possible. For the retouched photos, there might be some cropping, but even after that the size is usually at least 3000 x 5000 pixels. This is suitable for printing in almost any size, because for larger prints the viewer usually stands further from the image. For prints up to A2 size (about 60 x 40 cm) are individual pixel indistinguishable even in closer look – the resulting quality is over 200 DPI (Dots Per Inch), while a common monitor has about 100 DPI.
All of the photographs presented on this site had been retouched. These changes include correcting the skin problems, smoothing, reduction of unwanted shadows, eyes brightening, teeth whitening, local sharpening or blurring, cropping, background fixes, lighting changes etc.
This creates a basis for the next stage, which is color “styling” (e.g. conversion to black and white or dramatic or dreamy light photo, …). Different styles are suitable for different photographs. Because some of the adjustments can be dramatic and each person has different taste, I am always trying to create an alternatively styled version, so from one original photo, you will usually receive two versions.
There are two images below to show a difference between the original and the retouched version.
Examples of photomanipulation are here: Gallery of photomanipulation and advanced retouching.
It is possible to arrange creation of such photos too, but the difficulty and the time requirements are higher and the price depends on the actual requirements, so please contact me with your idea for the calculation.
None at all. When we will have plenty of photos with the current background, we can change it to something else. There are several options available: Paper “infinite” background (black, white, grey), folding out couch/bed, japan-style screen or even a plain wall – with the lights it will look completely different.
Changing the background takes about 3 to 5 minutes, because in addition to physically change the scene, it is also necessary to re-position the lights and adjust their power.
