I remember the exact moment I fell in love with photography as if it had happened yesterday. It was on a bike trip in Norway in 1997. At the time, it wasn’t just love there was also frustration. Frustration with the fact I couldn’t figure out photography, which isn’t all that different from a new love.
I only had an old point and shoot camera with no zoom and next to no experience. Seeing these beautiful rugged mountains, waterfalls, and fjords while not being able to capture them the way I saw it drove me nuts but also started a new journey.
Originally from Slovakia, I have been living in Whistler, BC since 2001 and it is here in these mountains and valleys I do most of my work. I met my partner here, Steve Storey, who is in most of my action and adventure photos as an athlete. We make a great team and work together on our travel and adventure projects. It’s where some of my favorite images have been created. Mountain biking has always been my niche but more recently I’ve been mixing it up with editorial, lifestyle, and commercial photography.
