Freelance - studio, press and documentary photographer in Belfast.

Freelance photographer and member of photo agency Visum Images in Hamburg, based in Belfast. Since 2007 I have been passionate about social documentary photography. In 2007 and 2008 I participated in social documentary photography and photo editing workshops organized by National Geographic. In 2004 I left Poland to travel around the world, I visited more than 20 countries in Europe, Middle East and Latin America. Dozens of my pictures taken during these trips are published in American version of The National Geographic. In 2007 one of my pictures was named Best Picture of the Month in the American edition of National Geographic and was published all over the world. Also, some of my pictures were published in National Geographic, Time, Belfast Telegraph, BBC, Vision Project, Social, Foto Evidence, DR, NGO insider among many others.

Since 2010 I have been living in Belfast, and documenting the transition and everyday life of Northern Ireland during the peace process. That is my first long-term project. The series of pictures I took in NI won me award- a first prize in the Polish edition of National Geographic competition in the Reportage category and then two of my pictures were commanded in Sony World Photography Awards competition in 2013 and a series of pictures were Honorable Mentioned in International Photography Award in Los Angeles in 2012.

My customers include:

 ...and many more.

My pictures are available through the National Geographic Image Collection in USA.
