Hi! Thanks for visiting my website!

My name is Jakub and I'm a passionate creative individual who uses medium of photography and video to create stills and moving images of people and products for brands, agencies and organizations.

My journey with photography begun when I was asked to take a photo of a tourist couple with their DSLR camera. From the first moment when I looked through the viewfinder I fell in love with the medium of photography.

A few months later I got my first camera and I applied for a photography course at Stevenson College in Edinburgh. After spending hundreds of hours taking photographs in almost any possible genre I completed my education with BA in Professional Photography and I realized that advertising was the most exciting area for me.

Soon I was given an opportunity by Whitespace creative agency to join their creative team as a contracted in-house photographer and videographer. During the 3 years with the agency, I worked on a variety of projects for high-profile clients and brands across the UK.

My passion is to create unique, high-quality and inspiring stills and moving images of people and products. As I'm a big DIY person I particularly enjoy capturing skillful craftsmen and their creations in their natural environments as workshops, factories, distilleries etc.

Imagination, creativity, technical abilities, expertise, personal taste and problem solving skills allow me to achieve visions and requirements of my clients. Attention to detail, background in IT and personal taste define my immaculate, highly detailed and often almost graphical style. My creativity and expertise are highly recognized within the industry as well as high-end retouching skills which give that extra punch to my creations.

I approach each project individually with passion, positivity and “can do” attitude and help my clients to achieve their goals through visual story telling.

Why work with me:

  • Your requirements and deadlines are paramount
  • Tailored service for each project
  • Consistent high quality and attention to detail
