Michal was born in Bratislava, studied in Vienna, has lived in London,
currently resides in Madrid and works worldwide.
He learned Spanish in Cádiz and he still keeps some of his “guiritano” accent.
He also speaks German because Knight Rider was only on Austrian TV.
Once he learned to walk his parents put skis on his feet
and years later he took the third place in a national competition.
His mom and grandpa were amateur photographers and got him into still photography.
He first picked up a video camera to shoot skateboard videos with his friends.
He likes to travel and his favourite time of the day is the blue hour.
One day he would love to live in a place where there are both good waves and mountains.
He is a father and director of photography.
