Iwona Pinkowicz

“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.”

About The Author

Host, Street Focus

The day I picked up a camera I became a storyteller. I now live and breathe in pixels! After working as a commercial photographer for several years, I realized that my love for the craft could serve others. Sharing the passion is now where I focus all my energy through teaching international photo workshops, speaking at seminars, writing, blogging and now podcasting. I am also thrilled to be an X Photographer for Fujifilm USA. Although I photograph everything and anything that moves me, my passion for mankind drives me to shoot street photography every day. I thrive on searching the story in a single frame. Find my Street Photograph: First Steps and Beyond on my website!

      • Sorry Valerie, I must have taken a wrong turning !

  • 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.
