“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever…
It remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
A few years ago when I was living in Northern Ireland, I was helping to organize a Polish picnic in Belfast.
One of the attraction was a concert of famous polish rock band T-Love. I was also one of the few official photographers for the event.
I really enjoyed taking pictures during the concert even if this wasn't my favourite type of photography.
I took a few portraits of the band members when they were performing.
Sometime after I read a comment from their fans that the pictures were one of best they had seen and that I captured not only faces but I captured what's in their souls.
I remember that this feedback had such a big impact on my photography.
“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.”

I truly believe that portrait photography is about showing someone’s soul, the true person and not only about their looks. Obviously, not every portrait is the same.
In my photography career, I had taken hundreds of portraits, some of them were for commercial use, to show the person at work or to be used for official documents, some for private purpose as ”That's my time and I want to keep it forever”, some were taken from a tree when the guy surprised his girlfriend with an engagement ring, some were to remember someone else as family portraits with older generation relatives and even some for promoting someone on dating websites.
I don't think that I can describe my portrait photography in one word, or even a few words.
I believe I can capture you the way you want to be captured either in a casual or a smart setting, or as a couple portrait, you name it. Please get in touch to talk it through.

about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
