    About me

    I'm a London-based camera assistant and operator with over 3 years of experience within the media industry. As a member of the camera department, I've worked on independent features and shorts, as well as commercials, fashion promos, and music videos, both in the UK and internationally.

    I was born and bred in Poland, which is where I first discovered what became my primary passion: visual storytelling. In my later youth, I moved to London in order to pursue a film degree at Middlesex University. From then onwards, I began to direct all my energy into pursuing the only work that matters to me now, the art and craft of cinematography. I graduated in 2017; earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film with an emphasis on cinematography. The graduation film that I'd shot Stevie (2017) played at multiple festivals, including the BAFTA recognized, UK's largest film festival celebrating female talent across the crafts Underwire Film Festival.

    After university, I pursued experience on film sets and have been growing my involvement in professional productions working primarily in the camera and lighting department. I then went on to working full-time, as an in-house focus puller and camera operator, in a production company and branded content agency, where I got a chance to work with a broad range of clients, such as Facebook, Instagram, Manchester City, ROKiT Williams Racing, and Barbour. I am now working freelance.

    I also shoot independently as often as an opportunity comes my way. As a cinematographer, I work predominantly in short fiction and fashion, but narrative-driven commercials and music videos inspire me too and I aim to get a broad range of projects under my belt.

    I recently shot a web-series Call It a Day (2019) that is currently enrolled in festivals. It has already been selected as part of multiple festivals across the world and has earned its first award for BEST WEB-SERIES at Oniros Film Awards 2020.

    My most recent shorts: Switch (2020), You Look Fine (2020) and Forbidden TV (2020) are currently in post-production.
