As a photographer, I am more than just a craftsman. I am an artistic explorer on a lifelong journey, wandering the world and discovering its beauty to collect unforgettable experiences. Photography allows to perceive reality in a unique way, experience life intensely and capture those experiences for eternity.
Through more than 10 years of dedication I have taught myself from scratch to only one goal: Being the best I personally can. As a result, my passion, endurance and hard work have led me to a creative career in photography and retouching.
Before I decided to jump into freelance, I was employed as a full-time photographer, Photoshop artist and videographer for one of Germany’s biggest real-estate companies based in Nuremberg. As a photographer, I mainly travelled through metropolitan areas of Germany as a full-time photographer to create the company's lifestyle, landscape, architecture, interior and portrait imagery. Aside from photo assignments, I joined the team of Photoshop artists, retouching photographs and compositing 3D renderings with 2D photographs. As a videographer, I was responsible for planning, recording and editing the company’s image and event videos.
Being born and grown up in Germany, I finished my geography studies in Gdansk Poland. There, in 2015 I made a fresh start in the photographic branch as picture editor at Thomson Reuters’ global picture desk. Seeking for more photographic experience, I continued my professional work as studio assistant at the Polish fashion studio POPin in 2016, until I left Poland to establish my travel photography portfolio, while working part-time as tour guide for Nordic Gateway AS in Stavanger, Norway. In Stavanger, I created a visual outdoor story for the sports and outdoor brand Bolder, until I returned six months later to Gdansk, to work for almost 2 years as a retoucher at Quad Graphics, the biggest printing company in the US. In June 2018, I moved to Nuremberg, Germany grabbing the opportunity to work as a full-time photographer and Photoshop artist at Project Immobilien Wohnen AG.
On my way, I have already been published by National Geographic Germany, won numerous international photo contests, was interviewed for and featured in Flickr’s spotlight and served as judge on Poland's national stage of the pan-European photo contest “Discover Europe”. Further, I have given a public talk at Sztuka Wyboru in Gdansk to share insights from my travels and photographic work. So far, I have already visited 25 countries on four continents.
