I believe in the importance of storytelling. Developing a different visual language for each project is a powerful tool I use to provoke emotions and create dramaturgy, and mood within scenes. Very important for me is creative partnership and understanding with the director and the crew. 

I have cinematography MA from the Krzysztof Kieślowski Film School in Poland. I am based in Warsaw, but working worldwide. I’ve been shooting narratives, commercials, documentaries, and music videos in Poland, Israel, France, Greece, Nepal, Great Britain and Serbia. Working with filmmakers from diverse cultures and in various locations made me grow as a person and as a director of photography.

My work was recognised at several international film festivals. My cinematography was awarded a Special Award for Best Cinematography of Krystian Dulewicz in "Synthol" (dir. Piotr Trojan) at the Freedom Film Festival; at Moscow Shorts International Film Festival I won the Best Cinematography Award for "By Halves" (dir. Anastasia Eleftheriou) and at the Watersprite International Student Film Festival I won the Best Cinematography Award for “I Know” (dir. Piotr Nalazek). The film “Sabina” (dir. Diana Zamojska) was the official selection in Energa Camerimage Student Panorama and the documentary “Miss Holocaust” (dir. Michalina Musielak) was officially selected for the Best Short Film Competition in the 67th Berlinale International Film Festival.
