Where are you from? 
I’m from Wroclaw in Poland but currently living in capital of Poland – Warsaw

At what point during your active skateboarding career did you move to photography and why? 
It was more than 10 years ago I think. It was natural, just wanted to be in skateboarding, creating something interesting and spend time with friends. I still skate and have fun of course, but photography is more important at the moment.

Proudest moment as a photographer? 
Maybe advert for Antihero with Daan Van Der Linden. Antihero is one of my top 5 favourite companies since I started skating in 1996.

Most embarrassing? 
When I was shooting my friend and he fucked up his knee.

What gear are you shooting with? 
Sony A7 III, Leica m8, Sony 85mm 1.8 , sigma 15mm, Quadralite / Godox flashes.

Is there any post-production you do? If so how far do you go?
Just basic things like exposure, contrast, color correction.

What is on your wishlist? 
Hard to say. I wish work with pros from my golden era like Dill, Papaalardo, Ave, Oyola, Puleo. Most of them are not skating that much so probably this never happen.

Last question. If you could interview one person, who would it be and why? 
Maybe Grant Brittain. He for sure has a lot of amazing stories about photography and skateboarding from every era.
