“I was born and raised in Przemysl, a small town in South East Poland. 

After finishing college I moved to London and I have been extremely lucky to call it home for the past 13 years.
After moving to London I worked in many different professions but eventually settled in digital marketing, where I continue to work today. In the summer of 2014 
I picked up a DSLR camera for the first time and started documenting life around me. The streets of London are exhilarating, with a rich variety of people, cultures and architecture making the city an exciting place to shoot street photography.
Photographing in public has changed the way I see the world around me. I’m more awake and aware than ever before, always in search of interesting people or situations to capture. I see life through the lens everywhere I go, even when I don’t have my camera with me!
Other than photography my two biggest passions are travelling and music. I’m always looking for new destinations to visit and strongly believe that travelling is the best way to learn about people, cultures and life in general.”

  1. Hello Valerie!
    Thanks for that episode. I’m planning a trip to London in October and this episode was just what I needed! Looking forward to the days I’m going to spend mostly taking picutres in London. Looking forward to the next episodes as always!

    Lots of greetings from Vienna, Austria!
    Lukas

  2. Hi Lukas,

    I am so glad that you found the episode useful. Thank you for listening to Street Focus! 🙂

  3. Excellent episode and I love the Polish London accent Iwona. I lived in Kings Cross (Keystone Crescent) about 25 years ago but sadly wasn’t photographing much at the time.

  4. Thanks for listening Alastair. And I’m so glad you experienced a blizzard during your first winter in NYC by the way. So many photo opportunities… 🙂
