Where do you live?

I live in Cieszyn (historic, over 1200 years old) small town on the border of Poland and Czech Republic. Here, you can watch my movie "Cieszyn In a Time Lapse".

Have you ever studied photography?

No, I'm a self-taught photographer. 

What is your favorite subject of photographs?

I am focused mainly on mountains. However I am afraid of heights, and I am not a proper alpinist.    

What kind of weather do you like the most?

For me almost every kind of weather is good to take pictures. However, I find photographing in full sunshine or during heavy rain less enjoyable. I like watching and photographing clouds.

Do you like travelling?

I love travelling. I set off on 2-3 photo journeys per year.

Do you use any additional accessories like tripods or filters?

I use Neutral Density graduated filters in order to reduce exposure of sky. I am minimalist. I don't like taking too much equipment with me, so I don't use tripod very often, and sometimes I regret it.

What is your post-production process like?

I use LIghtroom for the whole process of post-production except last stage - sharpening for web, which I make in Photoshop. In Lightroom I adjust white balance, curves, and saturation. Sometimes, especially in monochromatic photographs I use split toning.

Do you need assistant?

No, I'm not searching for an assistant. 

Are you organizing workshops? 

For now I don't have any workshops scheduled. However I am planning to organize workshops in 2017. If you have any suggestion or proposal, send me a message. You will find Contact Form in CONTACT section on this website.
