Alexandr Pospech

I’ve been a photographer since I was a little boy, which makes the count in order of decades now. Being tech geek for film & digital photography, computers and videography I reached further into imaging as an Application Specialist for top-notch scientific optical microscopy. On the aesthetic side - what I would call art - I’m slowly moving away from my origins within wildlife photography and macro.

A milestone to mention happened in 2009, when “Little Hopper” gained me the Highly Commended position in Wildlife Photographer of the Year (full story here), I finished my studies, left the university and started the biggest adventure of my life. Expeditions led me into some of the most remote places of Earth but also further into the jungle of our modern society. When I’m photographing nature, wild animals or plants, it is about them, about their world. It’s not about me and bringing the most striking shot ever. That is not important. I’m not a conqueror. I’m just a visitor who was allowed to enter their world and for that I respect them and I’m grateful.

Currently, I’m based in lovely Prague, future is not set and it’s full of big plans.
