|My name is Basia, I am a happy wife and a passionate photographer. Since 2011, I live in Iceland. Photography has been almost always in my life. Back in primary school, I started taking pictures with a Zenit camera, bought from “Russians at the market”.
I seriously started taking pictures in high school. There were first exhibitions and orders. After school, I decided to study in a completely different field, which is Technical Physics. In 2005, however, I started studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań at the Faculty of Photography. I graduated in 2008. Since that time I have been dealing with various orders, but nothing was permanent.
In 2011, we decided to move to Iceland with my husband. We settled in the east of the country, in Egilsstaðir. My dream came true and I started working as a photographer at Myndsmiðjan. Thanks to this work, I understood how much I love working with people and especially with children. At that time I have done many great orders, amazing photo sessions, and I got a publications in the Icelandic press.
I have lived in Reykjavík since 2014. After working 4 years full time job in hospital and taking photos for clients on weekends I made a big change. And since November 2019 I work in Landsítali for 50% and I have open my own photo studio.
I’m passionate about newborn photography. I completed the training organised by Gosia Michalak in June 2016 and another one organised by Monika Serek in March 2018. I try to continue develop and improve my workshop. I dream about opening my own studio.
In addition, I’m interested in handicrafts, I love to sew, knit etc. Through this accessories for my photos I’m doing a lot myself. Providing clients with unique stylizations.
