I was born and grew up in Warsaw, Poland where I studied fine art. When I moved to New York City, I was inspired by New York life and people I soon discovered Photography to be my passion.
I finished a One Year Conservatory in Photography from the New York Film Academy in 2014.
I was a recipient of the 2014 Honorable Mention from the International Photography Awards for Fine Art Portrait, as well as the 2015 Honorable Mention for the One Shot International Photography Awards Home-Perception competition.
From September 2015 to May 2016, I was an event photographer at Musee Magazine. Currently I am the staff photographer at Rare Royalty Magazine.
The focus of my photographs are people. Each person is so unique whether in the context of portrait, fashion or editorial photography. I am here to bring that uniqueness out. My images are colorful and bold.
