He graduated from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań with masters degree in Korean Studies and on Poznań University of Economics he did postgraduate studies in field of Business to Business Marketing with thesis on commercial photography. He is interested in photography since highschool and since 2008 he has run his own commercial photography studio in his hometown. Since 2011 at the invitation of professor Wladimir Włoszkiewicz he has been conducting practical lessons of photography, and lectures of composition for the Architecture Department's students at the Poznań University of Technology. Since 2013 he has run photography section of the Artistic Science Club. Until now he has shown his works during four collective and seven indyvidual exhibitions. He has also curated three student's exhibitions. Apart form photography he also sails, rides a horse nad skies during winters. In students years he raced cars and even won some trophies, but gave it up for taking photos. My works during couple of years has gone throught some evolution. I started with stilised portraits and geometric architecture, gone throught technics of multiexposure and photosinthesis, and now, however unelegant it sounds, I make some abstract figurations. My favorite aspect of photography is observing how viewers react to photos. I never try to make people think exactly what I meant it sounds dull to me. Instead I look for reactions where viewers have their individual thoughts, their own ideas on what they can see. This is when I am pleased with what I do. Why do I do it? For fun, nothing more.
