How did I become a photographer?
I am grateful for this career and what I have learnt and accomplished from it.
I was 10 years old when Communism fell in Poland.
I have never held a camera until the age of 11!
My childhood was spent living with my grandparents in their house on a country lane in Poland. We had amazing winters with snow up to a metre high! I remember one of my childhood thoughts and ideas was to decorate our lane with lights and photograph it.
I wanted to capture the amazing colours of light and the carpet of snow.
This was my dream.
I became a photographer from the passion of capturing a moment which is then gone forever and impossible to reproduce.
I achieved an M.A degree in Social Anthropology and I also finished a year's study in journalism.
From the very start of my career I worked with children of all ages and this quickly became my speciality.
I am 70% self - tough and have learnt by making many mistakes which have enabled me to improve my craft and talent. I also have a keen "eye".
My interest in photography grew when my children were born.
It became a great passion and something of an obsession.
What I love about photographs that they can freeze a moment which is then gone forever and we will never be able to replace it.
