My story of becoming a photographer started only few years ago, but it has its roots in my childhood. When I was 12, my parents took me on a trip. It wasn't just a regular family weekend, but something completely different from what a random Polish kid in the 1990s could experience. We went rock climbing. I instantly fell in love with this amazing sport and since then I had devoted every moment of my life to practicing climbing and traveling for climbing. This activity became my passion, and finally, my profession. Now it is my life.
In high school and college I had been poking around Poland, and later Europe, in search of interesting natural climbing areas. Most of them are located in national parks, or other extraordinarily beautiful places. Each time I visited magnificent mountains to climb I admired the background as well. I developed a need to capture those stunning moments, where sport, challenge and adventure meet the beauty of natural landscapes. I wanted to shoot my friends doing their life records, as well as capturing the magnificent views from the unique climbers’ perspective.
Right now I'm a professional climber. I work as a climbing teacher and coach. I'm based in Warsaw, Poland. I also work as a freelance photographer, mostly engaged in shooting climbing-related subjects. Combining my beloved hobby with my sport gives me satisfaction. Being a climbing pro, and a climbing community insider, is an opportunity for me to capture the most unique moments during training for this amazing sport.
