My name is Kaśka. I'm a photographer, art director and photo retoucher with over 10 years experience.
Currently based in Berlin.
As an art director I'm dealing with complex production of advertising photo shoots - from creative vision to advanced postproduction.
Specialization: fashion, portraits, still life, architecture, interiors, lifestyle.
In my everlasting struggle to find an ideal harmony, I take no shortcuts. I try to pinpoint and emphasize the mood of the photographed spaces or situations.
I believe that effect of the great high-end retouch should be primarily natural.
My offer is dedicated to sustainable brands and products.
Feel free to contact me in work related contexts, questions or just to say hello!

Kaśka is a versatile photographer, art director and retoucher with a sincere passion for everything related with image storytelling. She works using a big variety of cameras from analog, vintage minolta through polaroid, modern digitals to even mobile phone camera.
In many of her projects you can see smuggled references to paintings of old masters. That's not without a reason since she has a Master in History of Art.
Between working professionally for many years as a commercial photographer, creative director and producer she did take part in the sailing project "Rockin That Boat" to experience travel photojournalism and come back with the whole set of beautiful images. However she did not collected only standard pretty landscapes but focused as well on ordinary people from places scattered along the shores of Europe.
Since 2011 Kaśka designed and implemented dozens of advertising campaigns for many well-known polish brands. She is a specialist dedicated to sustainable fashion. She moves with ease across a diverse range of formats and aesthetics - which you can easily see for yourself by simply comparing her independent fashion shoots with her latest commercial projects or with travel photo diary.
