Core team


Jakub Sodomka
founder / art director

I'm happy that you took some time to stop by our site. My name is Jakub and I put together this team of exceptional people that I trust will deliver excellent work, 100% of the time. And what we are not able to deliver, we can simply request from our tested partners. Our passion can be easily seen in our work and we look forward to having the pleasure of working with you.You have creative goals and we could help you bring you them into fruition.

My focus is creative and art direction. As production itself is concerned, fashion and lifestyle/street are the mediums that interest me most.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I'd love to have you for a cup of tea.



Ivi Surova
photographer / blogger / stylist

Tackling the world of advertising during the day and an endless dreamer at night, I take my marketing sensibility and eye for design and merge them into my photography. 

There is power in photography. In my experience, every photo tells a story and has the power to inspire. I spend my days trying to find what new stories I can tell through the lense of my camera. My education in the visual arts has helped me develop my own unique aesthetic. I take pride in my work and strive to deliver the best possible work for my clients no matter where they are in the world. 

A passionate foodie, I love capturing mouth watering food moments. I enjoy curating foodie photos, and piecing together copy on the latest gastronomic trends, and of course, getting a little taste when I can. There is still a lot of flavours, tastes, and smells, to explore in the foodie world and I want to be there capturing those moments.

Matej Šmucr
instagrammer / photographer

Eternal student, passionate photographer and the occasional traveller. I aspire towards accomplishing my dreams and learn from every opportunity.  My every day goal is to constantly grow, building on my previous life experiences. 

I have been given a chance to travel to so many different countries, where I tried to capture with my camera thus immortalizing nature through photography. I am keen on exploring new places.

As I have never studied art or photography, trial and error has been my way of learning, but I have met lots of amazing people who taught me a lot and helped me shape my skills. And so this is what inspires me, getting to know new things and creating quality content to satisfy the client. So if you like my work do not hesitate to hire me for your project.

When creating something, it’s important for me to make it personal. Be it a portrait, documentary, fashion story, or a wedding portrait, it is the reason why I prefer shooting my projects on film. For me, film gives a sense of realness and tangibility to a photo. It's been difficult for me to fit in one specific photographic category, however what I believe is common to all that I do, is that I tend to work with people who care about how they live and what they do.

I bring to the table my 7 years of experience in marketing. After a couple years of balancing both jobs, I have decided to become a full time photographer, telling stories with a camera. 

Also, with my lovely girlfriend Sue we photograph weddings under Everbay Co. brand (mainly digitaly).
