Dog lover&photographer from Poland The most important thing, at what I am doing, is the opportunity to link two of my beloved passions – dogs and photography. Apart from communing with the wonderful creatures, which dogs are, and spending my leisure in this way, I love the fact – that I can put them in my own, self-created world. The crucial thing is, that I do not want to depict the reality – but I mean to disconnect from it. I want to show something, which nobody else can normally see. Mainly, I am inspired by the dogs being photographed. Each dog is a unique one, unrepeatable, and this is what I try to catch. The venues, where the sessions take place, are also important. I always endeavour to select something extraordinary, astonishing – needless to say a magical atmosphere. When the conditions are appropriate, the ideas for shots come themselves. One of the most vital concerns, both for the animal and for me, is a good liaison with a “furry model”, its freedom during the session, the joy of its behaviour. There is no place for coercion or nerviness. The good relationship with a dog, while at shots, transfers into how the dog presents itself, which afterwards is crucial for producing a desirable effect. I have never felt to be fully satisfied from what I am creating. It can always be done in a better way. The constant eagerness for self-improvement, the ability of self-criticism, and the determination to aim at the set target, are very important to me.
