Minneapolis based, I am a photographer and a photo art director with solid conceptual thinking skills. Even though I spent over a decade in the fashion industry, from NYC to Europe, my range is substantial and I bring an editorial lens to commercial assignments including kids, lifestyle, beauty and portrait.
My style is narrative, atmospheric and balances logic with intuition. I employ careful message construction and mood creation to deliver creative.
Born and raised in Poland into a culture of rebellion and creative problem solving, I understand which rules need to be broken and how to improvise when needed. I instinctively identify and navigate trends and emerging styles. With linguistics in my background, I successfully tailor images to concepts to communicate brand identities.
After earning my M.A. in Photography at New York University, I continued learning from some of the greatest fashion shooters in the city. This shaped my style and empowered me with a global perspective.
Should you trust me with your project? Yes, if you need a strategic planner, an involved partner and a creative who can develop concepts as well as shoot projects, like I've done for clients such as Playboy and Cosmopolitan. Yes, if you want perfect 10 casting. I’ve hand-picked models who were soon on their way to the top. Yes, if you want your budgets guarded. I’ve spent time on the client side as a Creative Buyer at Target where I’ve overseen the execution of multimillion dollar agency campaigns and served as project consultant to internal teams. And yes, if you need a perspective—I’ve waited tables in NYC with budding actors, slept in hammocks in the Amazon, taught Creative Thinking at NY's Mercy College and I’ve changed a lot of film for my first beloved mentor, Jacques Malignon.
