Although the Czech-Austrian border was only 80km from his town, he could not cross it due to political restrictions. Filip and others living behind the closed border missed the freedom of traveling that others take for granted and could only dream about cultural experiences they could not enjoy.
After Czechoslovakia's Velvet Revolution in 1989 (which led to the overthrow of its Communist government), Filip began working as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. He interacted with famous fashion designers and models while glossy magazines published his photographs. But the fashion industry in the Czech Republic is very small, so Filip decided to relocate to London in 2004 after the Czech Republic become a part of European Union.
Working from his London base, Filip began a new and exciting chapter in his life. In addition to interacting with one of London's top modeling agencies, he began to travel internationally, documenting his adventures in the form of stock photos for his new iPad/iPhone/iPod applications which are distributed via his website. Since 2005 Filip has traveled around the world twice by sea, visiting approximately 120 countries and many exotic locations along the way. Easter Island and Bora Bora are among his favorite destinations.
Filip is a hard worker and likes to keep things fresh by changing focus to different types of tasks. He likes to listen to music (jazz, blues, rock) while he is working and is a huge movie fan. Learning new skills is his passion. Filip aspires to create music videos and short artistic films. He has worked with Photoshop since the 1990s and recently added 3D modeling and visual effects to his repertoire.
