I grew up in Bielsko Biala, Poland, a small city famous for goose down comforters. Its about an hour from Krakow. When I was a kid, I ate a lot of potatoes and cabbage. I am the oldest of 4 boys. My dad, Leszek, liked to make pickles in the basement and watch soccer. My mom, Danuta, loved to cook. She made blueberry pierogis and red beet soup. My favorite wasfarmer's cheese mixed with sardines. Bread is optional. She loved to travel and she would take us out of town on the weekends.

When I was 17, I dated an artsy blond girl named Olga who was a photographer. I always wanted to be an artist but I was horrible at drawing.In the few months I was around her, I realized that I had a knack for still life photography. That pretty much sums up how I became a photographer.

I moved to Michigan when I was 20, got a degree in Fine Arts and Photography while I parked cars at night and learned English from my 3 roommates. Fast forward 10 years later. I live in New York pernamently and create images for a living.

I have received numerous awards for my Trees series from the International Photography Awards. (2004, 2005 and 2006). In 2009 PDN has included me in their choice of 30 emerging photographers to watch. In 2010 I was featured in November issue of American Photo under "One to Watch" section. In 2012 one of my food stories received a merit award from Society of Publication Designers.

I love creating conceptual images, pushing the boundaries of food photography and resolving client’s problems with an inspiring imagery. I still like red beet soup and blueberry pierogis, but I also like beef with broccoli and spicy tuna rolls these days.
