I caught up with Patrick Gubis, a talented photographer from Slovakia and one of Inked & Hitched’s photo contributors. It’s always nice to hear from other photographers back home and it’s even better to see how far they have come.

Tell us more about you. Your name, age, where you grew up and where you live now.

I am 27 years and originally from Karvina , Czech Republic , but  I’ve been living in Pezinku, Slovakia for seven years now . I moved because I had the opportunity to become a prop master for advertising. I tried it out for a few months and never turned back.

Sounds interesting. How did you start your career in photography?

While I worked as a props man, I started a bit with photography and video. I taught  myself but I think I got some talent from my grandfather who was a photographer. I progressed along the years and I’ve been a full time photographer for the past 2 years.

What is your most memorable experience as a photographer?

Definitely my trip to India. We went to do some street photography. It was a personal project, just to observe and document simple life. It wasn’t for money and I really enjoyed it.

We hear India is one of the most colourful places in the world =) Tell us more about your ink. Where did you get it done and what inspired it?

I got my first tattoo when I was around 17 but I don’t have that tattoo anymore. The tattoos I have now  are done by Rooster Tattoo, not only because I work with them very often but mostly because I love their style and work. I have a couple of tattoos which are very close to me and also say bits and pieces about my life. For example old man with a camera and a fox cleaning glasses.

Do you shoot a lot of tattooed people? Is it any different from shooting people without tattoos?

I do shoot a lot of tattooed people but also plenty of those without tattoos. A good picture is made by an interesting person. Tattoos don’t play any role.

That’s a brilliant perspective. Any advice for aspiring photographers out there?

Don’t be afraid to do what you love and follow your dreams. Don’t get discouraged, and mostly ask opinions-especially from people who’s opinion is important to you. Most importantly, be humble.

Words to heed indeed!
