I love connecting with people. I love having conversations. What excites me most about what I do is the human interaction – getting people inspired and fired up about what we might create together. Great stories, meaningful talks, pride, legacy.

I like to use my camera as an ice breaker, a way I can start those conversations… a bit like “going to the gym" for my social skills! Being able to preserve those moments through photography is an unbeatable feeling.

One of my recent personal projects involves photographing street scenes from a high vantage point (think 20th floor high-rises). They’re then printed up to 3 meters so that viewers can find the stories in them. And they aren’t staged; I never plan for people to find anything interesting in them. It’s all pure coincidence.

I left Poland at the age of 19 – being forced into the army for a year wasn’t really my thing. I went through lots of weird and wacky jobs: window-fitting, making up food trays for airlines flying out of Heathrow, and at one point I was translating documents from English to Polish. I got cocky and decided to try for an office-based job, then worked in media distribution for about three years. I quickly became scared that I’d still be making Excel spreadsheets by the time I turned 40.

Around the same time, I’d started using a Sony Ericsson mobile phone (remember those?) to photograph with. I also discovered how much I enjoyed playing around in Photoshop. After that, I bought my first DSLR and, soon enough, I decided I wanted to take photography more seriously. 

I quit my job and decided to enroll in university. I emptied my flat and left West London for... North London. I didn’t go far, but it was a huge change.

Now, specialising in portrait and fashion photography, I count working with clients like Disney, Abbey Road Studios, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Lionsgate as some of my top highlights.

Got an interesting project, commission, or idea? Let’s start a conversation!
