I got seriously interested in aviation photography around 2004. Since then I've been visiting numerous airshows and spotter days around Europe, spent quite some time at the airport fences etc. Since ca. 2012 I reduced my activity quite a bit, but I still try to get to at least few events a year.
Vast majority of my pictures are taken from publicly accessible places - surroundings of the installations, or just an airshow that you could buy the ticket for. I shoot with Canon EOS-1DX and 600/4 lens most of the time.
I used to publish in both printed and online media, mostly in Switzerland (where I live) and Poland (where I originate from). Apart from this website I own two others (both in maintenance mode, no regular updates):
- Airshow Reviews - guide to the most popular airshows, focused on photo opportunities and techniques.
- Photosite.pl - my personal photo archive (also for non-aviation pictures).
I used to be known as muflon on several photography- and aviation-related forums in
Poland and Switzerland. Professionally, as of 2020, I work as a Site Reliability Engineer at Google in Zürich.
