Biography

What started for me as simply a means of filling my free time after school, in time developed into a full blown photography passion and defined my whole life.

First I chose to study filmmaking at the Silesian Univeristy in Poland, then photography at Bournemouth & Poole College in Bournemouth, UK. Upon returning to Poland, I became a staff photographer for a newsweekly magazine "Wprost", but soon I recognized that only working as a free photojournalist will let me fulfill my passion of travelling and telling stories that I wanted.

Today I am shooting picture stories and short documentaries. In August 2011 I took part in MediaStorm advanced multimedia workshop in New York. A video shot then, "A Thousand More" was awarded first prize in FotoWeek DC's Documentary Storytelling and Experimental category. For the other of my video pieces, I received a Multimedia Photographer of the Year 2-nd prize award at the POYi 2012.

So - this is where I am now. I love photography, I love film. I do both. With the new exciting possibilities of reporting that have emerged thanks to new technology and the modern ways of reaching the audience, maybe we can make a difference ? A bit by bit? Never really sure about this.

Photography and film are fun, this is what I know for sure.
