Interview: Photographer Tomasz Korolczuk (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you? My name is Tomek, I'm 34 years old, I was born and raised in Poland. I also run my own business here. My biggest passion in life is photography and dancing.

How and when did you get into photography?

My journey with photography started back in 2011. A friend of mine offered me a job which was taking photos of clothing on a simple background. At the moment I had no idea about photography and what goes with it. I've stuck with photos of just clothing for a long time until I bought my first camera. I didn't work with my own equipment before. When I got it I've started to develop a bit. Like every beginner, I've started to take photos of everything I could lay my eyes on. Flowers, butterflies, products, people. At some point I've realized I do enjoy taking photos of dancers, because I am one myself. In 2018 I went to portrait and sensual workshops which were run by Aleks Salamon and these became my favorite type of photos. Currently I work with men's clothing for a brand in Poland.

What does photography mean to you?

On one hand photography is my main source of income, on the other it is the way I look at the world that surrounds me, it's how I try to keep every moment, emotion and people's beauty.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I enjoy taking photos of women, in particular portrets and sensual photography. Colors, I just love color photography.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I get my inspiration mostly from the Internet, expecially from Pinterest and Instagram. In our times, the Internet is the greatest treasury of knowledge and inspiration.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Sometimes I do know what I want to achieve before I take the photo, sometimes it's a matter of chance. It's enjoyable to not plan, to get carried away by your imagination and surprise yourself.

Studio, on location or both? I prefer working outdoors. It gives me a greater opportunity to express my creativity.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I consider myself a professional because, as I said before, photography is my main source of income, but in many aspects I still treat it as a hobby. I truly love doing it.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

The session that I remember the most and I think I will remember it for a long time was taking photos on the roof of a skyscraper at sunset on the edge of the building. All the emotions that accompanied it keep me smiling whenever I think about it.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon, Sigma Art 50mm 1.4, and although I think that this camera is the best for me, it doesn't really matter that much. The best equipment is the one we have on hand, at the moment. You don't need the best to take amazing photos, that's the beauty of it.

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

It's hard to give one piece of advice to a person who wants to open their own business, but I believe that confidence in yourself and in your business is very important. You just got to believe that you will succeed and work towards it as hard as possible.

What do you think of our new magazine?

I love it. Stands out on a market, has lots of interesting people and great photos. Good inspiration material.
