About me

Vladimír Bělohradský

I have born 1982 in small mountain city called Liberec situated on north of Czech republic. From early childhood I used to love and care about animals. I've visited local zoo quite often where my photography journey has begun in spring 2006. Usually spending whole day observe my favourite animals. At that day I have met Aleš Gola on his photography zoo visit. We talked a lot and he let me try his camera Canon EOS 350D with Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX USM. In that very moment I felt in love with capturing moments what previously been only observed.

It was hard to begin. Photo gear is not cheap which especially back then was no less than true. I had to save all money for 9 months to get my first kit with Canon EOS 400D and EF 18-55/3.5-5.6 II. After several months I upgraded to EOS 30D with 17-85/4-5.6 IS USM which for very first time enabled me to take some of my very first iconic photos.

My photography vision

I love South Africa's nature more than any other. Where my most favorite animal species are lions. I would love to have chance to follow and photo document life of this beautiful wild cats.
