After graduating from Charles University, Faculty of Journalism, Department of Television and Film Works (1987), he worked as a freelance journalist and photographer. After a number of other professional pursuits, in 1992 he established a language school, which he himself managed for several years.

Petr Ulrych was also active in literature. As well as having a number of short stories published in Prague´s weekly "Literární noviny", he published five books, of which the most interesting ones were Diaries of the Painter by Heart (interviews with painter and etcher Josef Jíra, Paseka, Praha 1997) and two books published in the Petrov Publishing House, Brno - where Mr. Ulrych belonged to a core of authors which included Michael Viewegh, Ivan Wernish, Pavel Šrut, and others - Illusions (short stories, 1998) and Heart of Puppets (novel, 2000).

In 2005 he began to devote himself to fine art photography professionally. The genre of Ulrych's works is principally the nude, portrait, abstract still life, and fine art travel photography. The edition of every photograph is limited up to five author´s prints, each of them dated and signed. Photographs are printed with archive pigment inks, which guarantees a minimum 200 years of longevity.

"A photograph is a picture. I perceive a picture as a very personal message through short-cut, symbol and abstraction. With the current adoration of reality, abstraction, both visual and spiritual, is the sought after answer for me."
