Piotr Czechowski Contact
- United Kingdom
My name is Piotr Czechowski and originally I'm from Poland. My story with landscape photography has begun quite recently when I decided to start my PhD studies in the field of computer control engineering.
I have always been passionate about nature and outdoor lifestyle but never really treated shooting landscape shots very seriously and used mainly simple point & shoot camera. Since I have moved to Glasgow in August 2004 that passion grew even stronger.
It may sound a bit funny but I bought my first digital camera (DSLR) just by coincidence. There was sort of a promotion period and I just decided to give it a try.
I wasn't really sure whether it was going to be my cup of tea but within a couple months time and few trips to Highlands I was completely into it.
First few months were mostly a trial & error period - working with a new equipment and getting to know it better. I am a self-learner by my nature - so I had to learn it on my mistakes. Obviously I read many articles on post-processing but always wanted to do it right in the field.
It is a great self learning process that has no boundaries and this is what I like the most about it. You may always find something new and inspiring and the feeling of freedom and escape from daily-life troubles is what gives me the real boost.
The weather in Scotland is changing so quickly and is so unpredictable, that it can be a real nightmare. On the other hand – it gives so much possibility to a photographer - that even a simple, well-known ordinary place can be quite inspiring when captured at a right time.
Yes – 'being in the right place at the right time' – is almost everything about the landscape photography. The ever-changing array of natural colours, textures and shapes is an endless source of inspiration to me.
Thank you very much for visiting my portfolio. Hope you enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
