Know your photographer from Krakow: Becoming a photographer was an inspiring adventure

A little bit about myself. I decided I want to become a photographer in 2009, when I was looking for a wedding photographer for my wedding. In 2010 I started photographing weddings and year 2019 is the last one I filled my calendar with wedding events. And for a while my photography interests shifted to children, families, portraits, lifestyle shoots but also fashion and corporate photography. I work with models and those who have never posed for photos before.


On the private side, I am married, have two little boys, love board games and sometimes regret I didn’t choose to work in the boardgaming industry. I enjoy good tv series and think there’s nothing better than early seasons of “Black Mirror”. I wear glasses, enjoy football (or soccer, you know) and try to spend as much time as possible with my closest family.

Check out some photos !

Sightseeing Krakow or Cracow

Krakow (eng. Cracow) attracts people for various reasons. We have tens of Universities and many students come to live in Krakow for a semester or a lifetime. The city offers a large number of business centers where student graduates and experienced workers can find a job a grow their skills. Lastly, Krakow is one of the most iconic tourist attractions in this part of Europe with a number of monuments, churches and unique places to visit.

As a shoot my travel photographer in Krakow I prepared this quick read as to what you can do while in Krakow – short or long term:

Wawel Castle

Located in city centre is one of the most famous places to see in Poland. You should definitely plan to see it's fabulous interiors as well as learn a bit about the history of the castle in the local museum offices.

Main Square and surroundings

Cloth Hall, St. Mary's church and so many other places that create Krakow's unique atmosphere, make sure you plan to spend at least one evening there, having a drink and enjoying yourselves!

Krakow Photographer

You can hire a Krakow photographer and have photos taken of yourself in Krakow. Whether you are living here or just visiting, it may be a great opportunity for unique memories from Krakow. Lets have a great lifestyle photosession in Krakow!

Eat Pierogi

I am polish but not a big fan of polish cuisine. Still, while being here try Pierogi (dumplings), Bigos or Kotlet Schabowy z ziemniakami i kapustą (pork meat with potatos and cabbage). If you don't like it, don't worry, noone will feel offended. Best to look for places recommendations on TripAdvisor.

Kazimierz - Jewish District

It's magical, its narrow streets and closed architecture make this area a very moody place to spend your day. Close by you will also find Schindler's Factory and Cricoteca - definitely a lot of places to check and enjoy and all within a walking distance!


It's a trip from Krakow but you'll find ways to get there if this place is on your list. If you are a person that enjoys sightseeing historical places then Auschwitz is a must. Unfortunately, it's a heartbreaking experience and it ruins your good mood for the day...

Wieliczka Salt Mine

Very popular place, underground tour of a local Salt Mine, it's quite an adventure. You need a ride to get there but there's plenty from city centre. On a hot day, it's a great idea to go there - it's colder underground!

Zakrzowek and Wisla river

If you have a chance, go see Zakrzowek, a beautiful lake in the middle of the city. There's nothing to see there, it's just beautiful to be there. Same goes for the Wisla River, experience a long walk by the river, check Kladka Bernatka and enjoy the atmosphere of Krakow!

I sincerly believe that every person needs good photos and that’s why I am here to deliver. Meet your needs.

What can I do for you?

Whether you live here

If you live in Krakow then I am a photographer local to you. I speak English and some spanish and can help you create stunning photographs in Krakow, putting the spotlight on you, your hobby, family, girlfriend/boyfriend or any topic you may need.

Perhaps you start a business here and need professional photos? Or you have a loved one with no photos together other then the selfies from mobile phone?

I can help!

or you are just visiting

You are here only for a couple of days? I understand, you have your agenda, sightseeing plan and your goal in Krakow is to explore. How about fitting in a 1hr photoshoot in your calendar? The rumor has it my rates may be cheaper than similar sessions in your country, so it may just be a good idea to have a portrait, family, lifestyle or business session while on holidays in Krakow.

Wouldn't that be a remarkable souvenir from your visit?

Portrait Session in Krakow

A portrait session lasts between 20 minutes and 1.5hrs, we meet in one of the Krakow locations which either you will choose or I will recommend. You have to prepare yourself – clothes, makeup and hair if needed and then we meet for a short walk. We either shoot in one location or can go around an area looking for good spot.

It can be a normal portrait session where you need a couple of photos. Or it can be a lifestyle shoot that will document part of your day, or your hobby. Or it can be a series of postcards with you in front of Krakow landmarks.

You choose the purpose!

Couples photosession in Krakow

You and your significant other need photos? I specialize in couples and engagements since I have been photographing weddings since 2010. We’ll meet in a place we will both choose and start from there, I will capture your love or friendship in a series of environmental portraits. If you wish – we would make sure Krakow is visible on the photos in one way or another.

If you and your girlfriend/boyfriend are visiting Krakow, wouldn’t it be an incredible memory to have your lovestory told in Krakow, with Krakow?

Family and children photography in Krakow

Your family photos in Krakow? Why not! If you live here then it’s natural that from time to time you organize a family portrait session for yourselves. But if you are only visiting Krakow for a couple of days, think that for a reasonable price you can have a mgnificent souvenir from Krakow – your family photoshoot from the place you decided to spend vacation in.

How does it look? Easy, I meet you on location or at your home and you guys spend time with each other. There’s no point in trying to pose little kids, it’s just better to spend time with them and be there with them. So I ddocument every smile and all the natural emotions that come to life during that friendly time of a photosession.

I have my own kids, I know how to do this!
