Photography has quickly become my creative outlet. It is very much a "work in progress" learning experience - one that I am enjoying very much.
As way of background, I am a Czech born Australian. My parents decided to escape the old Czechoslovak regime back in 1980 after many years of "waiting for things to get better".
I am lucky enough to have a beautiful wife and two kids, who, for most part are are great volunteers in daddys quest to capture the moment. My weapon of choice is a
Nikon D70 Nikon D200 Nikon D300Nikon D700 with a bunch of Nikkor lenses. I have also started shooting with the excellent Fuji X100.
I hope you enjoy some of my pics and by all means comment on anyone of them. I can take the good with the bad.
If you would like to use any of my images for commercial purposes, or as a print to hang on a wall somewhere, please contact me via flickr email. All images here are my work and the copyright is owned fully by me.
After some requests, I have made buying prints of my images a little easier by opening a Red Bubble Account. They handle all the logistics, all I do is supply the images. Go and have a look. At the moment, I only have a limited number of images there, but that will grow over time. If you would like an image that you see here posted over there so that you can buy a print, shoot me a flickr mail.

"One of my first contacts on flickr and a better one i could not ask for. His honesty, advice, and humor are always welcome. Mike's photos are a look into places i've not been, and they always take me on a journey. they inspire me to write and that is a wonderful thing for my creativity! i guess you could say he, at times, is my muse!! so, thanks mike for helping me improve and making me aspire to something far more than i knew was possible!! *hugs*"

"I have been a contact of Mikes now for over a year. He is one of my favorite flickr friends. Not only because he is a great photogrpaher and artist but he is caring, honest, and faithful. His love for his wife and two children are so obvious in his photos. This is the kind of man we all want for a friend. Looking through his photo stream you will see a great collection of many different things. You will not be bored with all sunsets, all portraits, all BW, etc. He has a little bit of everything.. Thanks Mike for showing us your world."

I have not been to Australia for the last few years. We have not met in person. Only on www.flickr.com that allow me to met him through his photos.
I have reviewed his images here, I want to testified to say that. Mike is a great imaging artist. The qualities of his works are all very consistant & very high standard of "Lives" & Real.
His loving kindness & sharing attitude are for the net communities to learn. Please visit him more often & discover.......
You are great Mike......"

"You better have some time to spend when you look at Mike's stream because you ARE going to get sucked in. Captivated, I should say, by the beauty that surrounds him and which he captures so very well.
The beauty of his wonderful wife and two adoreable kids, the beauty of the place where he lives and explores, and the beauty of his talent, and willingness to share it all with us.
With over 40 of his images in Explore, Mike obviously has an eye for the interesting, the unusual, and the normal everyday moments of life that make it worth living. If you are new to Mike's stream you are in for a treat."

"not only does mike live in the second most beautiful city in the world, he captures it and the surrounds so very, very well....his control of the basic camera functions like exposure and focus are top notch....a hugely consistant image maker.....look forward to his portraits in about 10 years, when his beautiful little subject is all grown up, stay tuned..:O)
seriously great results all the time....well done mike."
