Our names are Lukáš and Jakub, and we’re two keen nature watchers – we love to discover hidden animal behaviours, be it with camera in hand, tracking through the snow, or using camera traps. Over the years, we've gradually perfected spotting the tiniest details that reveal wild animal activity. In addition we’ve also started using a lot of outdoor gear and recording our encounters with the animals that inhabit our forests.
The market range of gadgets, clothing and gear is broad. The difference in price, quality and usability is crucial. We’ve always made it a priority to have the best possible gear available in a particular category or price range. However, we’ve often been unable to find sufficiently detailed information on products and product comparisons. Manufacturers love to praise and hype the added value of their own products, but often there isn’t much advice on the internet on practical use and proper testing. That's why we too have frequently made “blind” purchases. There were times we were pleasantly surprised, but there have also been let-downs. That’s why we decided to compile our knowledge of the gear we use on a daily basis, to help anyone who wants to know what they’re buying.

I’ve always spent more time out in nature than in the comfort of home. The reason was clear. An innocent hobby quickly quite literally became a lifestyle, and I organized everything so I could be out in the field with my camera for as long and as often as possible. I love being near wild animals, and the perspective the camera viewfinder provides. I think this is my own way of following ancient hunter instincts, an artistic calling, and my need for self- realization. After graduating university, I worked for a year as a field mapper and project coordinator, focusing on landscape connectivity and animal migration. Currently, my main priority is photographing and filming nature, especially large predators.
I’ve been fascinated by animals since I was a kid, and it’s become my passion to photograph them. On top of learning about animal habits, I also got acquainted with photography and worked to improve the quality of my shots. That’s why I’ve upgraded my gear multiple times over the last 15 years, to push my limits. Getting a degree in computer science helped me better understand the inner workings of digital technology, and my hobby gradually grew into my job. Today, I’m a professional nature videographer and get to spend even more time in nature than before.
