Hi, my name is Jan Vodrážka, but my friends call me John.


My love of art and photography began in my birthplace, Prague, Czech Republic. I had dreams of travel and started in 2010 with a two year long trip to Calgary, in western Canada. Through the Foothills Camera Club I enjoyed many trips to photograph the Rocky Mountains, the vast prairie, Indigenous celebrations, the Calgary Stampede and more.


A couple of years later, I decided to move to New Zealand, and have lived in beautiful Queenstown for the past 5 years.


I have competed and won awards on three continents. My most recent ‘trophy’ was 1st Prize from Nikon NZ, the official page for Nikon in New Zealand.


Nature is constantly changing and I am entranced by its beauty. Combining the relaxation of being surrounded by natural beauty and my passion for photography is the best of all worlds for me.


I hope you enjoy my work.


All of my photographs are available for purchase, with or without framing.

I also have a 2020 New Zealand calendar coming soon.
