When he was in Poland, he was looking for some different places to skate — and he found some. This photo was taken of him on the roof of the Powisle train station in Warsaw — typical Polish 70-foot architecture. Pontus was so happy with this roof, and so was I with this shot. This spot has never been skated before. download wallpaperBiographyIn 1998, I started to work for the Polish magazine Slizg (music, skateboarding, graffiti, etc.). At first, I was a journalist, but then I started to take an interest in photography. I was shooting music events and some portraits, and finally I started to work with skateboarders as I had always been fascinated by skateboarding. I spent a lot of time on my board, but — to be honest — I wasn't very talented. At the moment, I'm based in Warsaw and am focused on sport photography. Skateboarding, snowboarding, and freeskiing are my favorite subjects. I really love what I'm doing: working with friends, meeting new people, traveling and visiting new spots and new places, trying to "catch the moments" with my camera, and learning everyday. Sometimes it's not easy to make a living from it, but the most important thing is that it gives me so much satisfaction. I would like to thank all my friends and all the athletes I have worked with since without them, I couldn't do what I'm doing – lots of love!
