Hello! I’m Karol and I’m photographer.
So you’ve stumbled across this page because you want to get to know me a little bit, don’t you? Who knows, maybe we are on the same wavelength and have similar views on life?
I hope that we can quickly decide to say to ourselves „I DO”!
I’m a young, smiling guy from Krakow (you know – probably the prettiest city in Poland).
I like eating good food and yet I am still skinny.
I carry heavy cameras and yet I still need to work out my biceps.
And finally – I am a man who will never trade his job as a photographer for any other job. I must admit that this awareness makes me feel really excited.
I have been taking pictures since forever.
Everything started during photography workshops in the Community Center in my home town – Chełm. That’s when I became addicted to taking portraits, detail shots and reportage. Those workshops have taught me a few things, such as:
– how to deal both with natural and studio light,
– how to work with professional models and clients who don’t have their photos taken very often ,
– how to prepare an exhibition for a gallery,
– how to make hold business speeches.
That’s when I realized that what I do brings happiness not only to myself, but also to my clients, friends and audiences. The experience I gained, I later used in my first photography gigs – including weddings.
Besides photography, my biggest passion is traveling.
I’ve traveled to almost every European country. I have also lived abroad – one year in Portugal and a few months in the US. You can read stories from my trips on my blog: sunnydaysvalley.wordpress.com. I derive inspiration from all the places I have been to. They all give me a great sense of perspective. Thanks to traveling, I calm down, relax and find new ideas to use in my job.
Where do I usually take the bride and groom for the wedding shots?
I always try to find a new, inspiring place which attracts me either with its nature, its harshness or the splendor. I come back to the same, known spots only years later.
Let’s meet, talk and drink some good coffee.
I’ll be asking questions about you two because your stories always fascinate me. In return, you can ask me anything, also about things I wish I wrote here: my favorite grilled sardines, Madeira wine, hot springs in Azores, geysers in Yellowstone or Harry Potter. And of course – about my work during your wedding.
