About

About me.
My name is Krzysztof. I am a freelance photographer based in Poznań/Poland, focused on fashion, portrait and conceptual photography. My photos and wors style can be described as: simple, courageous, contemporary and true. I am addicted to people’s company, tea, and studio lighting.

What do I do?
I make visual materials, such as photos and short movies, creating pictures from my clients’ needs. Over the past few years I was preparing, among other things, new clothing brands campaigns, local artists’ album covers, I also made photos promoting a tattoo studio and a law office.

How do I work?
Tell me what you need, and when you need it, and I’ll start working. My main talent is an ability to work with a wide range of people, and making any person, who is stressed out by a photo shoot, relax and feel comfortable with the camera.

Biggest personal achievement?
My private project ‘Senne Panny’ was published in the Foto magazine. There were two exhibitions of the photos from this series, and the photos were then sold on a charity auction, and thereby helped to raise money for a local sociotherapeutical day room.

study of solitude

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
In today’s post there will be not only photos, but also my personal reflection on group session, where several models and several photographers meet on one set. I’ve been considering photos as a way of telling a story or show certain emotions for a long time now, so in my case a lot of intimacy is required. Therefore, I’ve always avoided group photoshoots or photography workshops, where many people fight for the model’s attention, and each one of them will eventually end up with a variation of the very same photo. The whole situation reminds me more of shooting celebrities on a photo wall rather than searching for something unique on your own. On the other hand, I wondered what these kind of events look like, and after many years I’ve decided to give it a try. The opportunity for that appeared when Poznańskie Plenery TFP informed about organising an apartment session, but I think I would come to similar conclusions after attending to any event of this type.

This post’s title is of course related to the photos. First, ‘study of solitude’ Ania:

remembrance trails

Hello fellow Blogreaders!
I’ve finally found a moment to catch up with the blog. First, a photoshoot that Justyna and I made in the first days of October. Justyna Sancja Milenkiewicz was responsible for make up, posing and stylization. Characterisation and further stylization were made by Dominika Cianciara. Our battlefield were abandoned allotments. The state of those corresponded well with the state of our main charakter. Come with me on a memory trail journey…

My Own Prison

Hello, fellow Blogreaders!
I wanted to make a photoshoot along the lines of lingerie + cinematic b&w + the light of sunset coming through blinds for a long time… but the unpredictable weather turned out to be a big problem. Luckily, there is no problem you can’t solve with flash lights – a description of the lighting will be as usually at the end of this post. The model, stylist and the owner of the place was already known from the blog (click, another click) Natalia. The claustrophobic climate, enhanced with a focused light and showing the “bars” in the shot made added up to a session which I called ‘My Own Prison’:
