Hello!  I’m Bartek, ( BARTOSZ  is also a longer version of my name, and some call me so )

I was five years old boy living in Nowa Huta near Krakow when I was creeping to capture rooks walking on the snow with 6×6 camera. This was primitive stuff which was able to focus from the 5 meters distance only but I felt like the hunter doing this. I don’t know whether the photos were successful because….. I decided to check it immediately after shooting by opening the camera… Yes. But maybe…  “A hard beginning maketh a good ending”. I still hope it is…  Some time later, my father took me to a real darkroom where I saw few adults people in dim, red light. They looked like they were doing spells  and I saw an Image appear on a piece of paper which was blank before. It was magic. I thought that I wanted to do it too.

In 1991 I graduated Secondary School of Visual Arts – Photography Divison in Gdynia. In 1995 I graduated from the Polish National Film School in Lodz – Photography Dept. In 2001 I graduated from the Polish National Film School in Lodz – Cinematography Dept.  I am a member of Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA).

For 20 years I have been working as a freelance cinematographer on a variety of projects like short fiction, documentaries, TV series, live broadcast studio shows, music events and corporate films. I have worked for all important Polish TV stations. Since few years ago I work as a documentary wedding photographer. I love to capture true life.
