Testimonials from customers
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.Michael McNish Creative Director | McNish & Phipps
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!
Lorrin Baker, SpringfieldI 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 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!AKMV law firmWe love your images!advokátska kancelária

Lomonosov Moscow State University is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in Moscow. Whenever I have the opportunity to visit this beautiful place, this is exactly the place where I always have to find myself. It is difficult to describe the feeling, I think that simply you must experience it to know exactly what I mean.
Writing a personal blog should not be just about writing tutorials or tips and tricks. Therefore, I would like to share with you today what happened to me last week.
Why is it good to have your own website and write photo blog?
When I first began to think that I should do my own website, the first thing I wanted was that the site is pure, simple, full of great photographs. Once I started to study this subject in more depth, I found that it is very important to have not only a nice site but a site full of content based on which people will be able to find you. It is useless if you have a beautiful photos but visit of website is almost zero. A talented photographer remains undiscovered.
Today I want to share with you a testimonial from one of my customer – Lorrin Baker from Springfield. I am writing this post because this message from Lorrin made a big smile on my face and I feel very happy that two of my images are hanging abroad
This is exactly what can a photographer really push forward in his work!
BW photo from Padang – Padang Beach, definitely a must do on your tri to Bali
Padang – Padang Beach is one of the most beautiful places we visited on Bali. Whether you love surfing or prefer just lying on the beach and admiring the magnificent surroundings, you will be amazed. This place is located about 25 km from the Denpasar airport in Badung regency. Some of the beautiful scenes of Bali that appeared in the movie Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts in the main role were made in this very place. The crystal clear water and the scenery around will literally take your breath away. If you‘re hoping for some romance, just wait for the sunset which is so magical here. This place is definitely a must do on your trip to Bali.
Get tips for shooting from local photographers
As I already mentioned in the previous post in black and white photography tips about how to find the best places for shooting, you might have already understood, it was my intention to come to this place. Lots of local photographers takes photos of newlyweds with a sweet background of children playing and splashing water around or jumping into the water and making funny faces into your lens. These photographs really caught my attention.
About Batur Lake, Bali
Lake Batur is the widest lake on this island. It lies down on the feet of Mount Batur and Mount Abang. On the left side which is not seen in this photograph, there is mount Batur, which is a small volcano. The volcano is still active today as Balinese still remember the great eruption of 1917. It claimed thousands of lives and destroyed hundreds of temples. It has erupted about 24 times since the year 1800. From the distance you can see many trucks carrying away the volcanic soil which is later used in the construction industry all around Bali. There are six ancient villages around the cauldron of Batur Lake which is often conceived to be the Bali Age Village. The total number of residents in this area is about 15 thousand; they are mostly working as farmers, merchants or they work in tourism.
