Ondřej Prosický

Award-winning wildlife photographer with his viewfinder locked on the beauties of nature.

Waiting in the wings for the single captivating moment of animal behavior, Ondřej is a natural…

Diving into the realm of nature is Ondřej’s deal and he spends most of the year chasing it. First, degrees from natural sciences and photography brought him to active volcanoes and remote national parks, only to later make him passionate about capturing the beauties of wildlife. So intensely that it stuck with him ever since which even won him the QEP photographer status in 2011 in the Wildlife Photography category.

The right man for the job, Ondřej supplies his work to many prestigious periodicals, publications, magazines, agencies and national park authorities the world over. He contributes to National Geographic Czech Republic, Koktejl, Outdoor, Travel Professional Magazine and many others.

Photo tour that makes my heart skip a beat

“Although the sun barely put in an appearance over the entire workshop, and the whole time it was pretty much shrouded in fog, I had a blast. At least we know how high our cameras can go on the ISO :-) Thanks for the great weekend, useful advices, guidance and the fine selection of locations - they all felt so natural and credible! From where I stand, I can highly recommend the workshop, knowing I will be coming back to pick Ondřej’s brains some more. There’s always something new to learn :-)”
