Radka was born in Prague / Czech Republic. She moved in the year 2000 to Paris, to pursue her dream and work as a fashion photographer. Very soon she meets her partner Rene Hallen and both photographers start an artistic collaboration and publish their work under René & Radka. Radka stays behind the camera and art directs most of the work while René focuses on post production and technical aspects.

Besides collaborating with numerous  international editions of fashion magazines and advertising clients, the duo makes their name on the art scene with 1st solo exhibition “Moonage Daydream” in Berlin 2006 folowed by “Come and play with us” and acclaimed “ Under Water” in Paris.  Most of R+R’s artwork is dedicated to the mysterious world of children, pictured in a very sophisticated and cinematic way. After successful representation of their art at the prestigious Paris Photo, Art Paris and Fiac, TV Channel ARTE produced a documentary about their work L’Art et la maniere”

Rene & Radka moved 2013 to Los Angeles to start a new adventure in their career. Their love for cinema and Americana, always a major inspiration for R&R’s photography, inspired them to work more and more with actors and in the entertainment industry, taking portraits of celebrities and keep producing art work with children.

In 2018 the team decided to discontinue their artistic collaboration and Radka Leitmeritz continues to work as photographer and director under her name, while Rene starts new business. Both partners in life and work are keeping working together often on post production and short films and videos, where Rene expands his passion for camera as DP.

Radka’s work was published in magazines such as T-Magazine, Wallpaper, W, Vanity Fair, Variety, Hollywood reporter, Billboard, Harper’s Bazaar, L'Officiel, Wall Street Journal, Elle, Vogue Japan, Vogue PT, Numero, Marie Claire, In Style, New York Magazine and Racquet.
