South Downs, Berwick workshop
25 May 2017
I attended my second workshop with Slawek. Previous Bosham, this time South Downs, Berwick; only 3 other people so he was able to devote a lot of time to each person, suggesting views which I had not seen, and open to suggestions as to thoughts on my views and images. Very approachable and friendly.
19 May 2017
Having attended the re-arranged workshop I can report that the wait was well worth it. Slawek is not only highly talented but is very patient and thorough in his teaching. I have gained considerable knowledge and a few (for me) good images. I will definitely join one of his workshops in the future.
Creative landscape lecture
14 March 2017
Slawek gave a an excellent talk this week to Kingston Camera Club. He showed great images and shared many helpful ideas and tips to stimulate us to get out and photograph the landscape. As a bonus he brought along his lenses and filters. Note that he has completely updated his talk so if you haven't heard him for a while it's worth getting him back.
17 February 2017
I attended this workshop as I have wanted to go there for years. I have been following Slawek on social media for years & wanted to learn some of his techniques. The workshop didn't disappoint. After many years of taking photographs set on automatic Slawek was kind & patient showing me how to use the settings & so now I have the foundations, I hope that my photographs will improve in depth now. A fantastic area for a workshop. I met some lovely people on the workshop too. I hope to be able to attend more workshops in time. Thank you.

Slawek travelled to Overton North Hampshire, He gave a talk on his work Landscape and Architectural Photography WOW was that good, Im sure we will have a return visit at some point, I would recommend his talk to any club, and he is also a very nice man. Thanks Slawek 10 out of 10
Excellent one-on-one instruction
13 October 2016
While visiting the Sussex area, I looked for photo workshops on the Internet, and Slawek's looked most interesting. Unfortunately the time wasn't right so I chose a 1-on-1 workshop. I'm maybe an intermediate photographer, it is still a hobby- My main interest was lighting and composition, and this time with Slawek greatly added to my understanding and enthusiasm. And my pictures are much better. We did landscapes. I hope to do buildings with Slawek's on next trip. It was great.
Ditchling Workshop July 10th 2016
09 August 2016
Slawek is the ideal choice for a workshop on the South Downs: he has many beautiful images of his own and has built up an understanding of the area over several years - he really knows how to bring unwieldy undulations and seemingly random trees into a cohesive whole. He was kind, patient and calm with an intelligent approach towards the technical aspects and a deep understanding of the aesthetics. We didn't experience the best light but it didn't particularly matter as the workshop was so enjoyable and informative, his teaching was clear and friendly and he was highly sensitive to our varying levels of experience. Most importantly, everyone received masses of individual attention. It was great. I've booked another.
Presentation at Horsham Photographic Society 8 June 2016
19 June 2016
Thank you on behalf of Horsham Photographic Society for your fascinating and inspiring talk on Landscape and Architectural Photography.
In addition to some wonderful images, your explanation of technique and demonstration of filters made for an enjoyable and informative evening. Your passion and dedication to the genre is an inspiration!

Talk to Maidenhead Camera Club
31 May 2016
Slawek gave an excellent and informative talk "Creative Landscape Photoraphy" to Maidenhead Camera Club last week. He brought his equipment along, including lens and filters and demonstrated and really inspired the Club in the use of various filters on camera. All the way through he showed his excellent and atmospheric pictures. It is very obvious he is a passionate and talented (and patient) landscape photographer.
Steyning and South Downs Workshops 7/8 May 2016
19 May 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed both the workshops I attended and learned a lot more about my camera and it's settings as well as how to improve my photography, especially composition. The scenery on the South Downs was beautiful and I shall be regularly revisiting the area during the different seasons. Slawek is very patient and ensures he gives each student one to one time.
I look forward to attending more workshops in the future.
Telephoto landscapes workshop
26 April 2016
Slawek originally postponed the workshop as the weather was not looking good. He made the right decision as the light on the day all six of us met up was just right.
We all had different levels of skill with our cameras and our approaches to composition and Slawek tailored his tuition accordingly. As a result I know we all got a lot out of the workshop.
This is an ideal workshop for anyone who wants to learn how to take great landscapes with their telephoto lens.
Canary Wharf Workshop 16 April 2016
18 April 2016
I really enjoyed the workshop at Canary Wharf and got some very useful advice from Slawek regarding composition, exposure and use of filters. I gained an understanding of using the histogram. I really enjoyed the taking some long exposures of Canary Wharf. I would certainly consider undertaking another workshop. Enjoyable and informative.
Birling Gap Workshop
14 April 2016
Despite the weather, I found the workshop at Birling Gap very helpful. You gave me good advice on composing subjects an making the best of the poor light. I am looking forward to your next workshop at Falmer
02 February 2016
Thanks for your visit to Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society on 13 January 2016. The members were very impressed with the images that were presented on the evening considering that very little post processing was done to them. You provided some very useful tips and hopefully the members will now make use of them. Thank you.
Eastbourne Workshop 23/01/16
01 February 2016
Thank you for some very helpful tips. The workshop had to be rescheduled due to poor winter weather and we were not too lucky with a dull misty day. However, the challenge of photography in non-optimal conditions was a great way to learn camera control and we all learned much from you. Despite the dull weather, I did manage to get several pleasing shots of Eastbourne pier. Many thanks & all the best.
Seven Sisters Camera Club
16 January 2016
Hi Slawek, a huge thank you from all of us at Seven Sisters Camera Club for a most beautiful presentation on the 4th of January, covering local landscapes and foreign travels.I love your approach to photography, where you place more importance on capturing the picture right at the time rather than rely heavily on post processing techniques. You have a very accute understanding of the light and its effect on contours and textures. And thank you also for sharing with us your experiences and tips...Merci merci merci! Marianne
28 September 2015
I undertook a 1-2-1 bespoke training course with Slawek to help me improve my technique and learn some tips. Slawek was very helpful, patient and knowledgeable; the session was informal and open where I could ask questions and put theory into practice. I would highly recommend.

26 May 2015
Just a big thank you for my 1:2:1 tuition session yesterday. I learned more about my camera and how to take a properly exposed image in a few hours than in the past 5 years! You patiently covered a range of topics from how to set up my camera, composition, use of filters and long exposures. I'm now looking forward to getting my own tripod and Lee filters to get out and use my new skills etc. I will be joining one of the group sessions to practice learn further in the near future. I highly recommend your tuition to photographers!!

Swietne, bajkowe zdjecia. Najbardziej podobaja mi sie zdjecia z naszej pieknej Gdyni.
10 February 2015
Many thanks for talking for 2 hours
at our club, despite you feeling below par.
We had a great turnout, despite being so
Landscape focused. Personally I really was
impressed how you search out good light
areas in your shots, rather than dodge the
relevant areas afterwards.

I chose a 1:2:1 tuition session with Slawek and found it very interesting and helpful. He patiently covered a range of topics from how to set up my camera, composition, use of filters and long exposures.

Birling Gap workshop 25/1/15
27 January 2015
This was the second workshop I've enjoyed with Slawek and once again he seems to pull out all the stops to ensure everyone comes away with some great images and having learnt a lot about the craft. It doesn't seem to matter what level you are at or whether you've been out with him before, there's always new tips and techniques. The workshops are so enjoyable, Slawek's enthusiasm is infectious and the individual attention you get is fantastic. His passion, expertise and good nature come together to create a great day, highly recommend a trip out with him.
Bosham Workshop 17 Jan 2015
21 January 2015
Great workshop and despite not having the best light on the day, I have some nice images to keep. Great individual tuition from which I learned some excellent new techniques. I would recommend photographers of all abilities to join Slawek on one of his workshops. His passion for photography is inspirational.

Workshop - South Downs - 13 Dec 2014

This was a most enjoyable day. Slawek gave the whole group a lot of individual attention to enable them to secure good landscape photos in sometimes difficult conditions. I was particularly grateful for his ability to ensure I fully appreciated the facilities available on a modern digital camera. I look forward to joining him on other workshops.

I'm delighted with the prints, which arrived today, only three days after I ordered them. They are of excellent quality and absolutely beautiful. Thank you!
Saltdean Workshop - 26 July
29 July 2014
An excellent workshop with Slawek. As a fellow Canon user he was able to help me set up my camera with a Custom Setting and also showed me how to use the back button focussing method. He devided his time between the whole group, helping and advising and showing us how to get the best out of the ND filters, explaining the importance of using the histogram to check exposure, and tailoring his advice depending on the knowledge of each member of the group. Sadly the weather didn't really play ball with a rather bland sky and few interesting shadows, but nevertheless his knowledge shone through. Would certainly recommend Slawek's workshops, and will be returning for another one sometime soon.
10 July 2014
This was my second workshop with Slawek and have found both to be extremely useful. Slawek soon works out your level of skill and offers advice to improve your knowledge and technique. I will definitely return for further workshops. Thank you Slawek.
09 July 2014
Joining several of Slawek's workshops has been a terrific learning experience and has brought my understanding of landscape photography to a new level; including the value of filters in landscape photography. He is extremely knowledgeable both of photographic techniques and where to find great locations, and gives advice and support as appropriate. Highly recommended.
03 July 2014
Parece fácil hacer fotos de paisajes, no? Pues he aprendido que todo requiere su técnica y aprender a mirar.
Un sitio espectacular, la clase entretenida, clara y muy útil. Merece la pena también para principiantes como yo. Qué más se puede pedir, que hable español? Pues también ;)
30 June 2014
Well done on the new website , looks good
25 June 2014
Photo workshops with Slawek come highly recommended, they are fun, very informative and excellent value
23 June 2014
Many thanks for the Berwick workshop on Saturday. Really good location and I found your leadership excellent. Lots of useful technical camera tips on the camera were really helpful plus the 1:1 on composition etc. Thank you.
