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.
