In the 1990s, he started as a gallery owner and later, as a journalist, he concentrated on reports from cultural events. In the new millennium, he merged all his activities and began filming underwater for various productions. His collaboration with documentarist Roman Vávra resulted not only in making their own nature documentaries but also caused a thematic shift towards social issues.
