Welcome to my page dedicated to Black and White Photography. In the following lines you can find some information about me and what black and white photography means to me, what actually black and white fine art photography is and why I use the long exposure techniques. In my blog you can also read some stories about how some of the photographs were taken, what I was thinking about when I pressed the shutter, my vision of its final image, which programs I use to convert to black and white in the post process as well as the information about the gear I used. Here you can also find interviews with my favorite black and white photographers who I am in contact with and whose work I really like.
I specialize mainly in long exposure landscape photography, architecture, seascapes but I am also interested in shooting streets.
Long Exposure Techniques
Why do I use Long Exposure techniques? Because it is something out of reality, that can´t be seen by a naked eye. This tool enables the photographer to catch the motion which is so unique. I believe, that all this information will be helpful for all black & white photography lovers as well as for those who have just recently discovered this style.

We bought some pictures from Matej and situated them on our webpage. Some of them are also framed and exposed in our law firm. They look amazing and catch the eye of everyone who visits our office. Thank you Matej and good luck!
I felt like a fine art museum curator when I opened the package. I was both stunned and very pleased to find images that looked exactly as they do on your site but with the added depth and crispness that a physical print adds. They are nothing short of gallery quality! Thanks again for being such a great person to deal with - your art truly is an inspiration.

We would like to offer our personal recommendation of Matej Michalik photographic work. We have selected 2 of Matej’s beautiful images that are a perfect fit with our branding. Our packaging had a strong black and white theme that is complimented by the monochromatic images. Many thanks to Matej for letting us share and enjoy his work!

I chose the photo because it symbolised infinite possibility. Focus. Direction. Serenity. It was a bold, beautiful depiction of how something so clean and simple can be so powerful and captivating.

We have been looking for a piece of photography for some time to use as a feature art piece in our home, and we instantly fell in love with the Unda River photo by Matej Michalik. Matej has captured a moment of pure joy on the faces of these young children. The simplicity of the moment and the stunning background together creates an amazing photograph.
