1-2-2 Landscape Walk

I asked Slawek to share some of his landscaping skills with my friend and I as it’s a genre of photography I don’t often spend enough time doing. I’d met him a couple of times when he was giving presentations at my local PhotoClub and was impressed by his photos, knowledge and easy manner. We were taken to a lovely location and he spent time talking to us about a range of useful tips about light, filters and composition+++. Many Thanks Slawek, and look forward to spending more time with you soon.

Landscape Talk to LOGS 15.5.19

Slawek came by invitation and expectation to our small group of elderly amateur enthusiasts . Two of whom had been on workshops with Slawek previously. We were treated to a really interesting and challenging afternoon, which was beautifully illustrated with excellent photos to make the point. Thank you Slawek, we really enjoyed it and now have to go into action and test out the theory for ourselves, trust we listened well!
Great knowledge, generously shared thank you.

Thanks

Thank you for a very enjoyable evening last Wednesday. Members have commented since what a small world it is ( your Swiss photos were from a Canton where the husband of one of our members was born!) and many of us were inspired to try those early mornings which so mark your work! We’ll see if that happens!

South Downs 1:1

Splendid outing yesterday on the South Downs with Slawek. Beautiful scenery and lots of photo opportunities all close at hand. Slawek works hard to find interesting compositions and light, and encourages you to try different things – all done in a gentle way with lots of help. I made it hard for him as I was shooting in infrared which isn’t his normal genre but he picked up its quirks very quickly. I can certainly recommend him for 1:1 outings.

1:1, Group workshop and Skype Photoshop tuition

I contacted Slawek after admiring his wonderful landscapes on his website, especially the telephoto landscapes. Since then I have done 1:1 close by Wilmington and group in Hastings as well as Skype photoshop sessions. He is a patient, excellent teacher with in-depth knowledge. I find 1:1 Skype is the ideal way to gain extra knowledge on photoshop. I can highly recommend his workshops.

Eastbourne workshop

My afternoon workshop in Eastbourne with Slawek was a bit disappointing, but only because it was cold, and the sky was uninspiring. Slawek helped us all in turn, making sure that we had the right camera settings; he lent me a big stopper, the first time I had been able to try one, and helped us all to improve our compositions.

I will certainly book with Slawek again.

Cuckmere Haven 28/10/17

We spent an enjoyable and informative afternoon with Slawek at Cuckmere Haven on Saturday. The weather was kind and the light was very good. Slawek showed us the best angles from which to take our images and made very helpful suggestions about composition and camera settings and calmly and efficiently ensured that we got the most from our time with him.

Good Evening with Slawek

Slawek gave us a great evening at Folkestone Camera Club. He showcased beautiful, well constructed images and emphasised how to get it right in camera. He gave all the information we needed to get started with filters in camera, the sales in them will now rocket! An excellent Camera Club presentation from a true professional.

1:1 Sessions

I highly recommend having 1:1 sessions with Slawek. He was not only very knowledgeable but also extremely encouraging. The sessions were fast paced, tailored to my needs and very enjoyable. I can’t wait to go back for more – I know there’s so much more I can learn from him. Thanks Slawek!

South Downs, Berwick workshop

I attended my second workshop with Slawek. Previous Bosham, this time South Downs, Berwick; only 3 other people so he was able to devote a lot of time to each person, suggesting views which I had not seen, and open to suggestions as to thoughts on my views and images. Very approachable and friendly.

Petworth Workshop

Having attended the re-arranged workshop I can report that the wait was well worth it. Slawek is not only highly talented but is very patient and thorough in his teaching. I have gained considerable knowledge and a few (for me) good images. I will definitely join one of his workshops in the future.

Creative landscape lecture

Slawek gave a an excellent talk this week to Kingston Camera Club. He showed great images and shared many helpful ideas and tips to stimulate us to get out and photograph the landscape. As a bonus he brought along his lenses and filters. Note that he has completely updated his talk so if you haven’t heard him for a while it’s worth getting him back.

Dungeness Workshop

I attended this workshop as I have wanted to go there for years. I have been following Slawek on social media for years & wanted to learn some of his techniques. The workshop didn’t disappoint. After many years of taking photographs set on automatic Slawek was kind & patient showing me how to use the settings & so now I have the foundations, I hope that my photographs will improve in depth now. A fantastic area for a workshop. I met some lovely people on the workshop too. I hope to be able to attend more workshops in time. Thank you.

Lecture

11th November 2016
Slawek travelled to Overton North Hampshire, he gave a talk on his work Landscape and Architectural Photography. WOW was that good, I’m sure we will have a return visit at some point, I would recommend his talk to any club, and he is also a very nice man. Thanks Slawek 10 out of 10.

Excellent one-on-one instruction

While visiting the Sussex area, I looked for photo workshops on the Internet, and Slawek’s looked most interesting. Unfortunately the time wasn’t right so I chose a 1-on-1 workshop. I’m maybe an intermediate photographer, it is still a hobby- My main interest was lighting and composition, and this time with Slawek greatly added to my understanding and enthusiasm. And my pictures are much better. We did landscapes. I hope to do buildings with Slawek’s on next trip. It was great.

Ditchling Workshop July 10th 2016

Slawek is the ideal choice for a workshop on the South Downs: he has many beautiful images of his own and has built up an understanding of the area over several years – he really knows how to bring unwieldy undulations and seemingly random trees into a cohesive whole. He was kind, patient and calm with an intelligent approach towards the technical aspects and a deep understanding of the aesthetics. We didn’t experience the best light but it didn’t particularly matter as the workshop was so enjoyable and informative, his teaching was clear and friendly and he was highly sensitive to our varying levels of experience. Most importantly, everyone received masses of individual attention. It was great. I’ve booked another.

Presentation at Horsham Photographic Society 8 June 2016

Talk to Maidenhead Camera Club

Slawek gave an excellent and informative talk “Creative Landscape Photoraphy” to Maidenhead Camera Club last week. He brought his equipment along, including lens and filters and demonstrated and really inspired the Club in the use of various filters on camera. All the way through he showed his excellent and atmospheric pictures. It is very obvious he is a passionate and talented (and patient) landscape photographer.

Steyning and South Downs Workshops 7/8 May 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed both the workshops I attended and learned a lot more about my camera and it’s settings as well as how to improve my photography, especially composition. The scenery on the South Downs was beautiful and I shall be regularly revisiting the area during the different seasons. Slawek is very patient and ensures he gives each student one to one time.
I look forward to attending more workshops in the future.

Telephoto landscapes workshop

Slawek originally postponed the workshop as the weather was not looking good. He made the right decision as the light on the day all six of us met up was just right.

We all had different levels of skill with our cameras and our approaches to composition and Slawek tailored his tuition accordingly. As a result I know we all got a lot out of the workshop.

This is an ideal workshop for anyone who wants to learn how to take great landscapes with their telephoto lens.

Canary Wharf Workshop 16 April 2016

I really enjoyed the workshop at Canary Wharf and got some very useful advice from Slawek regarding composition, exposure and use of filters. I gained an understanding of using the histogram. I really enjoyed the taking some long exposures of Canary Wharf. I would certainly consider undertaking another workshop. Enjoyable and informative.

Richmond Visit

Hi Slawek,
Thanks for your visit to Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society on 13 January 2016. The members were very impressed with the images that were presented on the evening considering that very little post processing was done to them. You provided some very useful tips and hopefully the members will now make use of them. Thank you.

Eastbourne Workshop 23/01/16

HI Slawek,
Thank you for some very helpful tips. The workshop had to be rescheduled due to poor winter weather and we were not too lucky with a dull misty day. However, the challenge of photography in non-optimal conditions was a great way to learn camera control and we all learned much from you. Despite the dull weather, I did manage to get several pleasing shots of Eastbourne pier. Many thanks & all the best.

Hi Slawek, a huge thank you from all of us at Seven Sisters Camera Club for a most beautiful presentation on the 4th of January, covering local landscapes and foreign travels.I love your approach to photography, where you place more importance on capturing the picture right at the time rather than rely heavily on post processing techniques.

1-2-1 tuition

Hi Slawek,
Just a big thank you for my 1:2:1 tuition session yesterday. I learned more about my camera and how to take a properly exposed image in a few hours than in the past 5 years! You patiently covered a range of topics from how to set up my camera, composition, use of filters and long exposures. I’m now looking forward to getting my own tripod and Lee filters to get out and use my new skills etc. I will be joining one of the group sessions to practice learn further in the near future. I highly recommend your tuition to photographers!!

Club talk

Hi Slawek,
Many thanks for talking for 2 hours at our club, despite you feeling below par. We had a great turnout, despite being so Landscape focused. Personally I really was impressed how you search out good light areas in your shots, rather than dodge the relevant areas afterwards.

This was the second workshop I’ve enjoyed with Slawek and once again he seems to pull out all the stops to ensure everyone comes away with some great images and having learnt a lot about the craft. It doesn’t seem to matter what level you are at or whether you’ve been out with him before, there’s always new tips and techniques. The workshops are so enjoyable, Slawek’s enthusiasm is infectious and the individual attention you get is fantastic. His passion, expertise and good nature come together to create a great day, highly recommend a trip out with him.

Saltdean Workshop 26 July

An excellent workshop with Slawek. As a fellow Canon user he was able to help me set up my camera with a Custom Setting and also showed me how to use the back button focussing method. He devided his time between the whole group, helping and advising and showing us how to get the best out of the ND filters, explaining the importance of using the histogram to check exposure, and tailoring his advice depending on the knowledge of each member of the group. Sadly the weather didn’t really play ball with a rather bland sky and few interesting shadows, but nevertheless his knowledge shone through. Would certainly recommend Slawek’s workshops, and will be returning for another one sometime soon.

Joining several of Slawek’s workshops has been a terrific learning experience and has brought my understanding of landscape photography to a new level; including the value of filters in landscape photography.
