I’m Adam Śmigielski, a Wrocław (Poland) based freelance photographer and graphic designer.
I love my work and my "small business" :-) called republica nova and I always say that
"...work is like a hat you put on your head. And even if you don't have pants, you don't have to walk down the street ashamed of your ass as long as you have a hat..." (from my favorite movie - Arizona Dream, 1992)
I have a few other words of wisdom ;-) but... let's talk about photography!
I like travel photography, working with models as well as "shooting" in my small studio where I'm taking pictures of various objects, fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, spices, sweets and other foods and drinks... and many other small and large stuff ;-)
I love my Canon camera (and all my L-enses), Adobe Lightroom (and sometimes Photoshop :)), my old and scratchy Wacom tablet... and I love my family, of course!
And I'm still learning... (my second motto is from iStock team: "having the opportunity to be rejected is part of the learning process").
Sometimes, as a graphic designer, I take pictures (eg packshots) for my projects - press ads, catalogs, flyers, stands etc.
I like to design logos in Illustrator, work with Photoshop or do DTP in InDesign... but... first of all I am iStockphoto Exclusive Photographer and Videographer.
