it is my hobby, I do not charge at the moment
I was born and raised in a small town surrounded by mountains in Slovakia. I currently live in High Wycombe (UK). In the past, I studied Music Composition and composed music. I realized my passion for visual imagery during my MA studies at National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield 2010-12 (UK) and started learning about photography and finding my voice as an artist.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Pavol. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I love doing creative fine art photography projects with a focus on portraiture and figurative work
Pavol, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I am fascinated by chiaroscuro technique and inspired by old Masters of oil painting. I cannot draw myself, I create photographs
Who is your inspiration in life Pavol? How do you keep inspired?
True beauty doesn't seek attention. I need to calm down, become present, and get in touch with myself first in order to see.
We all make mistakes Pavol, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Once I did a TFP photoshoot with a fashion designer. We had a lot of issues regarding the copyrights and license to use. Since then I always make sure that there is a clarity regarding the copyrights, model release, and formal paperwork prior to the photo shoot to prevent potential disappointments later.
Pavol, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
It is very important to arrange meetings prior to the photoshoots and be clear what are the client's needs and if I am the right person for them.
Please tell us Pavol, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I think preparation is very important, photoshoot for me is a journey, creative process,
Pavol, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I do not persuade, I give suggestions and I direct.
Pavol please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
every photo shoot is different, but the journey is the same, it is full of unexpected challenges, and surprises, and I like that.
Pavol, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I am always creative. Otherwise, I would not do it.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
it is very important to find the way to ''click with the person/model or subject'' rather than to click the button on your camera.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands, and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
yes, I would love to collaborate and use my talent and skills and work for brands.
