20152016 -  took a training in Direction of Photography at The Polish National Film, Television & Theatre School in Łódź, Poland. 

Born in Kraków, Poland, Based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Available to work and travel worldwide. 

I am deeply interested in working with like minded professionals from around a world. When I was 15, I decided to make movies, because in the first place so many films inspired be to be a better human, to love more, to express myself, to think and feel differently. Therefore, I would like to give back what I once got. I aim to create beauty on the screen, to use cinematography, light and the tools given to stream beauty, inspiration, passion or truth, real feelings and emotions. 

I am deeply privileged to do what I do, I am passionate about my work, whenever it's diving deeply in the pre-production process and storyboards of a fictional piece, or getting to know the characters and real life stories while doing a documentary work. 

While being on constant research of self improvement and polishing my skills, I am open for new collaborations on fictional features/dramas, commercial work or documentaries. You are welcome to contact me. 

Member of The Danish Association of Cinematographers DFF and The International Collective of Female Cinematographers ICFC since May 2017
