Tour leader and photo educator
Jan Miřacký is a professional landscape and travel photographer that leads photography and adventure tours worldwide. He has led tours in Alaska, Myanmar, Peru, Patagonia, Iceland and other exotic destinations. Traveling and photography has been his greatest passions for more than a decade now, but his journey led through less enjoyable acts like getting his Master’s degree in information systems and technologies. At the time he graduated, it was too late for his profession to take over his life as his adventure tours were already up and running and he had started Johnny’s Prague Photo Tours where his liking for teaching photography fully developed. In 2015 he founded a photography group in Prague and organizes photo walks, workshops and courses.
The only next logical step was to run photography tours in various countries around the world. He has been doing this for Czech clientele since 2015 and then, when the time felt right, he teamed up with his friend Martin Bišof he had known before to create this truly exciting international photography project that combines all their passions in one.
Jan is known for his engaging personality, open-minded and informal yet professional approach, efficient teaching methods that are proved working by his sky-high satisfaction rating from his clients.
His all time favorite photography destinations are Iceland, Myanmar and Peru. He’s traveled more than 35 countries and doesn’t intend to stop anytime soon. His heart beats faster when he finds himself emerged in great amazing outdoors with his camera on a tripod and 10-stop ND on. Jan loves shooting long-exposures, vast landscapes in dramatic light and cityscapes during blue hour. His post-processing reflects his visions and typically features vibrant colors, depth and his emotions.
