ABOUT ME

TOMAS TISON

I was born in Pilsen in Czech Republic and now I living in Nyrany near Pilsen. Photography has been my hobby since 2010 when I bought a digital compact camera. I was so much excited about the first images that photography became my no.1 hobby. A year later, I sold the camera and bought a new digital SLR camera.

Initially, I did not focus on any specific genre. I was shooting everything – macros, detail, people, nature, night sky or landscapes. I have acquired a great deal of experience, which I am using now.

I’ve always been a lover of nature and its beauties. Logically, landscape and nature rank among my favourite topics.

Thanks to photography, I see the world that surrounds me differently than before. Photography has made me think about things I ignored in the past. Photo is like a canvass for a painter; it allows me to express my ideas.

Currently, I dedicate only to fine art black and white photography. Shades of black and white adding dramatic accents to a photo, help better express my intentions and enhance the rendering of my vision. These are the photos, in which I frequently use a combination of long exposure with a minimalist composition.

Since 2017, I have successfully participated in various national and international photography contests.
