About me

Richard Kay Kardhordo

Richard Kay Kardhordó is a filmmaker and portrait, advertising, travel, nude photographer based in Bratislava-Slovakia with experience on more than 25 featured films and more than 400 commercials, where he cooperated on as an Assistant of Director. He is the founder of Cinejessy casting agency in Bratislava, where he works as casting director and provides actors and extras for film and commercials. Thanks to what he has experienced both behind the camera and in front of it as well. He fulfilled his filmmaker dreams and worked with/met his idols like Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Sean Connery or even played in movie as an actor with Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell.

Thanks to his parents´ support, he had experiences with shooting on Super8 camera and thanks to his father, amateur photographer, he is familiar with darkroom techniques since his teens.

Richard admires distinctiveness and variety of the human face all around the world and the beauty of the human body (especially the women body). He likes to meet interesting people, he is passionate about traveling. He likes to travel to countries, where the time has stopped, where the people still live the way they did before globalisation, places untouched by technology, where locals live with respect and harmony with the nature. He loves to observe the life on the streets in foreign cities and to learn the customs and habits of the country he currently stays in. This is what he tries to capture in his personal photography work as well. This also applies in his commercial work for his clients, advertising agencies and magazines.

Richard speaks fluent slovak, english, hungarian and a bit of german.
