Can you tell us a little about you?
I'm 49 years old. I was born, raised and educated in Częstochowa, Poland. I live and work in Germany for fifteen years. It's hard to talk about yourself.
How and when did you get into photography?
There was always a camera in my family. I received the first camera at the age of 8, the second I deliberately bought a Soviet reflex camera Zenit TTL when I was 12 years old. Then it began and continues to this day with breaks.
What does photography mean to you?
Photographing was a hobby, but as the disease secretly developed and became a life passion.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
I'm just a photographer. I photograph everything, but for 3 years I have been focusing on portrait photography. Almost all my awards and distinctions relate to the portrait. I am a portrait photographer
Where do you get inspiration from?
I mainly draw inspiration from painting. Recently, I also look with envy at the light operated by the creators of world cinema.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
Of course. I have a picture in my head, often a few months before taking a photo
Studio, on location or both?
Both of them, but increasingly, I try to modify the lights found in the location using lamps.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
I am a specialist and passionate. I don't think I could earn a living by photographing
What has been your most memorable session and why?
Each session is unforgettable and each brings new work and experience. Of course, my first session is unforgettable, where I took a photo that received the most medals and awards at international competitions
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Mirrorless SONY, I don't have a favorite lens. I have about eighty of them all. They are all very old, all with manual focus. I don't have any AF lens.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
I don't have my own business, so I can't help it. I can advise every aspiring master of the lens that they need to study patiently until their last photo.
What do you think of our new magazine?
A terrible question. The lawyer recommended refusing to answer :) Very nice to host in your pages
