He puts a special attention on how to master the language of light and its behavior, how to learn to see it, move it, bend it and most importantly control it, while creating outstanding images. Lukas motto and understanding of photography goes far beyond the studio setup; it’s all about the model seen as a person: “ We must remember that we are photographing a living being, that has feelings. I think that the most important element in the process is an ability to create an appropriate atmosphere, the good mood, that extract our emotions, that you can see and feel in the image and unfold what we want to convey, making our picture special.” -- Awards - 2009 HONORABLE MENTION WINNER in Fotoerotica Competition by Playboy Polska - I place in “Light and shadow” Competition by Obsessive - III place in Fotoerotica 2010 by Playboy Polska - The International Loupe Awards Competition 2011 Australia- Open category Commercial, Advertising & Fashion Category x 2 silver awards and x 2 bronze awards - 2 x HONORABLE MENTION WINNER OF PX3, Prix de la Photographie Paris 2012 - The International Loupe Awards Competition 2012 Australia- Open category Commercial, Advertising & Fashion Category Silver Award - The International Loupe Awards Competition 2012 Australia- Open category People & Portraits x 2 Bronze awards - The International Loupe Awards Competition 2012 Australia- Open category Wedding Bronze Awards - the 2012 Emerging Pro - People's Choice Fashion & Beauty - 2 x HONORABLE MENTION WINNER OF PX3, Prix de la Photographie Paris 2013 Exhibition 19.05.2012 “Long Night the Museum” Warsaw Collective exhibition at the Art Production ul.
