After so much photography evolution I can say I'm satisfied where I'm going. I've decided not to retouch so much and stay true to technicalities and the surroundings. Creating story from the model, environment and the light. Creating the perfect atmosphere is much easier outside and thats why I currently prefer natural background over white studio. You can see in my last few shoots the big difference in the light, colours and the textures that give life; I've found my style and learned a trick or two that I intend to use in my future artwork and add that extra something every photographer needs to add, the "soul" of the photos.


In last few years I've met some crazy people and did some amazing work, can't say I'm not satisfied with the progress! I'm always interested in learning and getting better, so naturally I can't wait for my future projects.
I'd like to feature the highlight of 2013, second book cover that I've did for Rujana Jeger, Croatian author, with talented MUA Petra Sever. We had a blast, the shoot was done in a day with five different playful dogs. I've used Canon 40D with different lenses (50mm, 35mm, 25mm) and played with natural ligh (personally I dislike flash and will always avoid it if I can).

Book cover 1 (Hod po rubu) |  Book cover 2 (Bez dlake na jeziku)


You can find all my current, full, photoshoots at my homepage and don't hesitate to check it out! I'll also leave some links from other social media networks.

So if you are from my area and if you are interested in my work, remember - I do PHOTOGRAPHY - portraits, models, conceptual & fashion. Booking: matija.vid.pecek[AT]
