During my 17 years of education and work experience, I have held various roles along the filmmaking pipeline to perfect my knowledge about the whole production process. I have always been excited to learn new things and teach them back (I give classes at the Wroclaw Film School). In Poland I ran my own company Let Me See Productions. I have been constantly expressing myself creatively by doing my own movies or working on film sets.

Most of the time I work as a DP. To somehow give an impression of who I am and what I can do, I will summarize some bits: I was nominated to festivals (Toronto, New York) for a short feature On My Way, and awarded for short Neither Peace nor Quietness. I did a lot of music videos, ads, and a few documentaries. Recent films I produced (worked there as a creative director and a cinematographer) have been screened on Mezzo TV satellites in 60 countries, and on Polish national television. In the last gig, I was DP for one of the largest events in the classical music industry at the International Classical Music Awards, partnering with Deutsche Welle and ICMA team. I was working as a multi-camera director and a broadcast camera operator during classical music and sport streaming, live transmission and recordings. I had an extraordinary opportunity to work on feature film sets with renowned directors like Denis Villeneuve, Pawłowski, Jan Jakub Kolski among others, to learn the feature film production process.

My specialty is vast experience with any kind of high-end lighting equipment, from the big Arri HMI units through stage moving heads up to small, self-designed practicals. I work efficiently by using the right tools for the job. Whenever it’s needed I’m creating pre-vis in 3d or CAD software, planning electric routes and power demands, rigging plans, and realistic schedules. I was programming and designing lighting for huge areas, working also on stages. If necessary I am able to improvise quickly to find the best possible solution and get a great shot. My expertise has grown also in top-level shows. As a Head of the Lighting and Video Department I worked for European Film Awards 2016, World Games 2017, Akram Khan Until the Lions, and more than 1000 concerts, events, operas, performances), as a Lighting Designer (Che Malambo, SHMIB, Zbigniew Preisner, Hugh Masekela, Eivind Aarset Quartet, Ron Carter, Macy Gray, John Zorn, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Bobo Stenson Trio, Leszek Możdżer, Gregory Porter, Wynton Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin, Raz Dwa Trzy, Jesse Cook and many more).

Each of these roles helped me to become a more aware cinematographer which is my main creative direction.
