Beautiful Swiss countryside
“My name is Martin Rak. I was born in 1984 in Prague, and have been living there all my life. I got my first camera from my grandfather when I was six and I have been interested in photography since then. However, I have only been photographing seriously since 2009, when I bought my first digital SLR camera.
I enjoy traveling and being outside, therefore I mostly do fine art landscape photography. My favorite place is the Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland which lies on the boarder between the Czech Republic and Germany. Most of my images are from there.
It is a beautiful feeling to stand on a cliff in the morning silence, above the endless sea of clouds and to be there when the first light touches the landscape. I try to capture this atmosphere with my camera and share it with you.
I have recently been more attracted to black and white photography, which especially together with long exposures allow me to drift away from the real world and realize my creative intention.”
