Here you can see me during my work. Photographs by my friend © Warun NANTHASAKULKARN.
I'm Ewa Brykowska. I'm a portrait photographer...the photographer of memories.
My work is a combination of photography, printing techniques skills and love with art, which makes me a creator of your souvenirs.
A digital image becomes a real photography only as a print. Nowadays, when we are flooded with thousands of digital images, holding a beautifully framed high-quality print becomes precious and timeless.
I created A fraction of a second with life passion for photography, art and printing techniques to transform your memories into materialised high-quality physical form. Something beautiful and unique for you and your family. Something durable enough to share with next generation...
I don't succumb to momentary trends, so my photography is timeless. I will print your memories on long-lived art paper (with proper treatment, it can survive for over 200 years !!!) and framed it in a professional elegant frame or design an exclusive photo album with your favourite photos. I can also create a video full of magical memories for you. Let's talk about it :-)
As a mother, I perfectly know how quickly children change. Especially the youngest ones. We take thousands of quick shoots by smartphone which are important for everyday communication with family and friends.
But do these photos will stay with you forever?
Professional sessions and high-quality prints have a different goal. It is a story of your life, which should be shown in a special form. Digital images are not enough... Printed photography holding in your hands becomes for you like a piece of art. They are no longer some virtual, digital images. They became a real photography.
Time goes very fast, so don't delay and arrange a unique photo session to catch and materialise what is important to you...
... Create your story with me ...
Some things you should know about me :-)
I can speak Polish, English & French.
From an early age, I showed manual skills and a love of art. I became seriously interested in photography in 2012.
I graduated from the Spéos – École de Photographie in Paris, achieved Master's degree in photography (specialisation: Studio) and French professional title of photographer - RNCP, where I learned all about photography, lighting and printing techniques. As a curiosity, I would like to add that I am also a master of the Faculty of Law and Administration in Lodz, Poland... in a field so related to art ;-)
I also finished the professional introductory course in wet collodion photography process in the Studio Ambrotype in Paris, taught by Mélanie-Jane Frey, the world-class authority in this field.
My portrait works were awarded in the international photography competitions - ND Awards, IPA, MIFA, APA, as well were published in magazine and featured in exhibitions (to see more check my Achievements below).
My favourite things: art books, good coffee, a 10 km run and capturing wonderful glances of children through my camera.
The most important in my life are love, health and curiosity of the world.
Hope to see you soon !
