Name: Martin Rak
Occupation: Area Manager for Marmot in the Czech Republic
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Background in Photography: 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 I bought my first digital SLR camera in 2007 (I shoot with Canon digital cameras and lenses).
What inspires you to take photos?
I enjoy spending my free time in nature or traveling, therefore I mostly shoot landscape photography. However, I like shooting nature and architecture as well. My favorite place is Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland which lies on the boarder between the Czech Republic and Germany. Most of my pictures are from this area.
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.
