About the photo shoot

illustration photo camera lens

I have been a people photographer for more than 20 years now, that is why I have an individual approach to each person in my studio and try to find the best pose and light to get the most natural result, be it private photos, business or CV portraits, headshots for social media, couple or family pictures. Your body type, age, or experience with photography is of no importance. Striving to find the essence of each subject, every client’s layout is unique. 

The cornerstone of any photo shoot in my studio in the center of Prague or elsewhere in exterior we agreed is a friendly and professional atmosphere.

I consider myself a specialist in photo sessions with people who are not used to the camera or don’t feel comfortable in front of it. It is always an enjoyable challenge for me to get their confidence during the interview about the photo style and mood before we start taking pictures, so I can lead them through the whole photo shoot process without them noticing the camera much and get original photos that they like. Of course, I don’t mind actors and professional speakers that love the camera. 🙂 A professional attitude and confidentiality are guaranteed.


There are no walk-ins in photography, so please book your photo session in advance via phone + 420 777 023 821 or e-mail jan@janwphoto.cz or via the contact form HERE.  Weekend or evening photo session appointments are available.

Visage and clothing

The make-up artists I work with have experience with movie make-up and body painting, so only your fantasy is the limit for your look.

We can help you choose the clothes that will enhance your ideas, including accessories,
 hairstyles, and visage, so we can best express them in the photographs.

Photos delivery

I usually deliver photos via web storage but can also create a custom-designed calendar, photo book, or pretty much anything else you can think of from your photographs. We only supply the agreed number of retouched photos, we do not provide the remaining unedited images.

Photo shoot styles

The photography style and mood is entirely up to you, depending on the purpose of photos: business, art, happy, sad, romantic, cute, or sexy.

Portraits – Everybody needs various styles of portrait photos nowadays. In the case of business portrait mainly for LinkedIn profile, CV, business presentation, or conference. Photographs of the work team or management in one style on the company web site also looks very professional. On the other hand, informal portraits are needed on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest. A special category is a Casting portrait for actors, dancers, and singers. You can combine different portrait styles within any photo package.

Maternity, newborn and family photos Photography is a unique tool for preserving unrepeatable moments in everybody’s life, such as the birth of a baby. With maternity photographs, you can start an original beautiful photo album for your baby, when you do the photoshoots regularly, you can later fill in newborn photos, first steps, growing year after year, first year at school and if you have a willing teenager you can continue until her/his graduation.

The couple and pre-wedding photos Couple photos depend entirely on your imagination, regarding their style, mood, or whether the photoshoot takes place in my studio or at another location. The pictures might be just for the two of you or used for Christmas cards for your family and friends. Pre-wedding photos are great as a cornerstone for a wedding invitation and decorations.

Boudoir – Boudoir originally meant the private chamber of a lady. That is why boudoir photo shoot often takes place in partly or fully furnished room. Most of the time woman wears lingerie or is caught while changing her clothes. Photos of this style should present a woman’s intimacy and naturalness.

Fashion – The focal point of Fashion shots is the clothing. Most of the time the model doesn’t look straight to the camera.  This avoids distracting the observer from the outfit.

Pin-up – The model is the main object in Pin-up photos. A typical characteristic of these photos is retro styling which is based on posters from the 1950′s and 1960′s.

Fine Art and Artistic nudes – Pictures of a nude figure came from the ancient tradition of celebrating the ideal beauty of human body. These are aesthetically captured photos of the partly or fully nude body, but unlike glamour photos there is no hint of eroticism.

Wedding photos Wedding photoshoots generally include the bride and groom’s preparation, meeting guests, the ceremony, banquet, and of course separate photos of newlyweds and group shots with guests.
