By 1931, having mastered photographic technique, he worked for Horizons de France, and participated in the creation of over 10,000 images for the humanist series on the country's work force entitled La France Travaille. Until WWII he photographed for Chanel, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain, Van Cleef and Arpels, and Moët et Chandon. A successful career culminated with a show at Galerie de la Pléiade and a book, 25 Photos de Kollar published in 1934.
