NiSi UK: What got you into photography?
Marek: Photography become an integral part of my life about 12 years back. I decided to buy a camera to capture moments of life my newborn baby girl Zuzanna and over time photography soaked into me completely and gives me incredible satisfaction as well as the opportunity to travel, explore and develop my skills.
NiSi UK: Talk us through your favourite shot with NiSi filters.
Marek: My favourite photograph so far shooting with NiSi filters is an image from Wicklow Forrest in Ireland. I have to use the S6 filter holder system with CPL and had adjusted CPL to enhance contrast and reflections on the waterfalls. The CPL has nicely enhanced the colours and it was fun shooting long exposures while testing the S6. The important thing for me was, no light leaks while shooting long exposure and what I love most is that I rotate CPL with other filters attached mounted in the holder.
NiSi UK: What is your dream location to photograph?
Marek: There many places I would love to visit, but if I have to choose, it would be Antarctica or South Georgia. I’m fascinated with polar regions in general, love the cold, ice, and above all else, the wilderness and areas untouched by civilisation.
