I made the photo shoot in that region for the polish magazine ‘Gory’, which means ‘Mountains’.The main problem was to talk the climbers into going there, as the region is known for its very dangerous and unsafe routes. The idea for the photo came into my mind only on the spot, during the climb of Micha? Król, who was resting before the difficult final section of the route. I asked him to lean against the wall and enjoy the views. The use of a wide-angle lens created an amazing effect. download wallpaperBiographyI’m 29 years old and since I can remember my life has been connected to mountains and traveling. I became interested in photography a couple of years ago. I bought my first good camera in 2007 and initially I wasn’t really ambitious, treating the activity just as a great hobby and a springboard from my profession. But things went in a different direction. Together with my friends I went climbing in the Tatra Mountains and took some photographs of their achievements. The photos turned out to be interesting for prestigious polish outdoor magazines. Since then I’ve looked at photography in a different way, I’ve learnt and experimented. Now, I’m a regular contributor to mountain magazines in Poland and Czech republic. I try to combine traveling with photography. I try to show everyday life as well as the uniqueness of that part of the world. My trip last year to Tian-Shan Mountains in Kyrgyzstan taught me a lot in terms of photography and in terms of life itself. At the beginning of 2010 I became a member of the photographic agency ‘Babel images’, which focuses on presenting social problems and respecting human rights. I am also now an ambassador for Clik Elite.
