Freelance Photographer and Photography Workshop Leader in Sussex

Hello. My name is Slawek [pron. suaveck]. I’m a freelance photographer based in the Brighton area in West Sussex, England. I specialise in landscape, architecture and travel photography. Read more about me and my photographic services and image licensing.

See examples of my work in the portfolio section. The images were taken at a variety of locations in the UK and Europe. Moreover, I have thousands of images in my archives available for licensing.

photography workshops & tuition

I run landscape photography workshops for small groups, at locations in Sussex and the South East.
As well as private photography courses for individuals and organised groups.
Besides, I  offer image editing and photography tuition via Skype.


Also, I regularly speak to camera clubs and photographic societies. During my talks I cover a range of subjects regarding landscape, travel and architecture photography.

Most presentations still take place over zoom. But many clubs allow visitors to join their meetings, usually for a small fee.

Upcoming presentations in the New Year:

  • Godalming Photographic Club
  • Eastbourne Photographic Society

Great day out on the South Downs

Slawek’s South Downs workshop was an excellent day out. We concentrated on the use of a telephoto lens to capture detailed views illuminated by sun as the cloud cover changed capturing moving shadows and highlights. I’ve often used a telephoto zoom lens for landscape photography, but not to capture these fleeting and almost sculptural perspectives and the highlights and shadows transitioned across the Downs. Slawek provided excellent guidance as the day progressed and communicated a deep knowledge of the South Downs and the application of telephoto photography to its rounded contours.
