Slawek is a freelance photographer specialising in landscape, travel and architecture photography. Born in Gdynia, on the Baltic coast of Poland, he’s been based in Brighton since 2007. Between 2009 and 2011 his, then novel, telephoto approach to photographing the South Downs around the city garnered him 8 commendations and a special award in three consecutive editions of Take-a-View LPOTY. Since then his style and original compositions have influenced many other local photographers. Although his interest in photography initially evolved from computer graphics, his approach to landscape photography is more conservative and he prefers to keep postproduction to a minimum, relying instead on getting the best input material in-camera. Slawek offers photography workshops, in small groups and individual, at a variety of locations in Sussex, London and further afield, and image editing tuition in Brighton. He regularly gives inspirational talks to camera clubs across South East England.
