Hi,

My name is Mateusz Piesiak. I've created this space so you can find out a little bit more about me, what I've done in the past, and what I'm up to at the moment.
From photography, to music and art, I'm incredibly excited to share each of these projects with you.

Thanks for visiting & feel free to reach out any time.
- Mateusz

About me

I was born in 1996 in Wrocław, Poland. I study Automation and Robotics at the University od Science and Technology in Wrocław. When I'm not studying there is a great chance to find me in forests, bushes or marshes, sitting in a small blind and hoping that something will appear in front of my lens.

Many times I come home with empty cards but when I finally manage to take my dream photo, it rewards any effort.
