My name is Mateusz Piesiak, I was born in 1996 in Wroclaw in Poland. I study Automatics and Robotics at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. I am photographing since 2009. I belong to Polish Nature Photographers Association. My images were awarded at national and international photographic competitions, published in journals, and presented at exhibitions.

I’ve been interested in nature since I can remember. It allows me to calm down and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I photograph mostly birds. Wildlife photography requires a lot of patience and preparation, eg. building special hides. Often, after many hours of sitting in my hiding place, I come home without any photo. However, when I finally take an awaited shot, it rewards any effort.

In nature photography I like the moment, when I am hidden in the hide, and like a spectator sitting in the front row in the theater, I can admire the amazing spectacle of nature that takes place just in front of me.

Oprócz fotografii moją drugą pasją jest gra na fortepianie, na którym uczę się grać już od 11 lat.

W wolnym czasie także rysuję i trenuję siatkówkę 🙂
