One to Watch: Czech Teenager Turns a Curiosity for Photography into Something Much Greater

One to Watch: Czech Teenager Oliver Beneš

Equipped with nothing more than an old compact camera and the internet to guide him, Oliver Beneš’ simple curiosity for photography quickly developed into a passion he now shares with the world. 

When Oliver Beneš was younger, he hated travelling but that soon changed after he discovered his passion for photography. Oliver picked up his first camera when he was 14, an old compact camera that his family had at home. He didn’t know a thing about photography, so took to the internet to educate himself. It wasn’t long before he got his own camera, a Nikon D3300 and kit lens, which opened his eyes to the world around him. Fast-forward three years, and this Czech teenager is getting up early and hiking for hours to capture some of the most breathtaking photos, and loving every moment. 

Here are a few of Oliver’s photos that we thought were pretty amazing. You can see more of his work by visiting his website, or following him on Facebook and Instagram.

 

While I was getting back home from school, I saw these clouds, slowly picking up the orange glow. When I got home I grabbed the tripod and camera and ran to the nearest meadow. Because this place is in Prague, there are wires and buildings everywhere, so I put the camera almost to the ground to at least partially cover them with grass.

Last 6 days I was exploring Tenerife island and its hidden night beauty with three of my friends. The sky is so much different to ours and milky way is strongly visible even few degrees above the horizon. And the best part, there were no mosqitos! #toptenerifephoto #megapixelcz #beautifuldestinations #igerscz #universetoday #globe_shotz #tenerifetag #exceptional_pictures #exclusive_shot #milkywaychasers #nikond750 #nightsky #czechrepublic #longexposure #globe_shotz #natgeospace #nikon_cz_sk #newmilkyway #landscapephotography #milkyway #jsemnikon #nature_brilliance #tenerife #destinationearth #astrophotography #yourshotphotographer #earthofficial #longexposure #OlympusFotoAkademie18 Autor: Oliver Beneš, SŠ - Noční Fotografie, Tisíce Hvězd #Ps_Starry @photoshop

This weekend I had an opportunity to spent two days in Slovakia. Weather wasn’t very human friendly - huge rain, wind and absolute absence of any sunlight. There wasn’t any fog, only some low clouds lying on the top of the hills, and that was my goal. The only good thing on a bad weather is that you can sleep as much as you need beacuse the light is still the same. On Saturday in the morning I started hiking, and after about two hours I was on the crest. Here started all the fun. The base of the ridge was only the clay with fallen leaves on the top, and with rain it was really a deadly and slippery combination. Afer about one hour there I was totally wet. Hope you enjoy the image as I enjoyed the place, despite the weather this place was really amazing with all the fog and silence. Only thing which you could hear #jsemnikon #nikoncz #nikon_cz_sk #d750

Solitér ze Zhůří trochu jinak. Po cca hodině a čtvrt zoufalého chození po rozlehlé planině jsem už myslel že nic nevyfotím, ale ke konci, když už jsem měl kompletně promočené kalhoty, boty, a začal jsem nadávat že jsem nic nenašel, se mlha zvedla, a slunce udělalo na asi deset minut světelné paprsky. Shot from one day trip to Bohemian forest, after walking for an hour or even more without finding composition I was desperate, but then, when I got back from where I started the mist came up and sun created these light beams for around 10 minutes. Added a silhouette to emphasize the size od this tree. Njoy! #igerscz #czech #megapixelcz #ig_tree_shotz #beauty_of_czechia #jsemnikon #umenifotit #thebest_capture #landscapephotomag #worldclasslandscapephotographers #tree #destination_earth #jecozazit #treelove #exceptional_pictures #ig_today #czechnature #fotimesumavu #natgeoyourshot #tree_brilliance #tree_magic #beautifuldestinations #earth_shotz #artistfound #nature_brillance #earthofficial #globe_shotz #welovesumava @tree_magic
