What we're about

"My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport." - Steve McCurry

About me: I have my BFA and MA in Studio Art/Aesthetics/Photography, and an MS in Practical Journalism. Storytelling with imagery, painting, travel and writing are part of my DNA :) I also have a TOEFL Certificate. Education is true power and freedom. ENGLISH is the language we will communicate with.

Storytelling is an integral part to human culture. This is a group for anyone that wants to learn more about narrative photography, understanding culture, and develop an understanding about art. I want to share with you my decades of knowledge, experience and intuitive passion for visual communication -with- my love for travel and culture.

This group is for those who are curious about others, open-minded and desire to take their passions to a deeper level.

A great photographer continues to learn how to see and interpret the world around them - with or without a camera. Looking forward to exploring Warsaw with you. For adults, 18+. All skill levels with any type of camera are welcome. (Yes, any camera. Great photos come from you, not an expensive camera.)
