Czech photographer Martin Rak is deeply in love with the Czech Republic, and specifically with the indescribable freshness and majesty of its nature. Through his works, he tries to convey at least part of the sensations that he experiences when standing in the morning on a picturesque hill and breathing in the fresh cool air…
Born and raised in Prague, Martin turned 28 this year, but despite his relatively young age, he has already achieved a lot in the field of creating amazing landscape shots.
Martin received his first camera at the age of 6 — as a gift from his grandfather — and since then he has immersed himself in this amazing hobby.
In 2007, the Czech’s dream came true — he bought his first “SLR” and in the same year published his first professional shots.
The favorite place of the photographer is still the area on the border of the Czech Republic and Germany, the so-called Bohemian Switzerland — the Czech part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, part of which the Germans call Saxon Switzerland
For the sake of unique shots, Martin Rak gets up at dawn and climbs the mountain to capture the sea of clouds serenely resting at his feet with the first rays of the sun.
