He was born in Poland in the year 1979. While growing up he spend his time studying German. But all this time had a photo camera that he never ever let out of his sight. His name is Bartlomiej Chabalowski and beside the fact he is Polish, he is also internationally renowned.
As mentioned before Bartlomiej Chabalowski has a strong passion for photography ever since he can remember. So strong that he was convinced that, even though studying German, his fate was moving towards a different direction. A direction that had nothing to do with language and everything with visual arts. After his studies Bartlomiej found a job as retoucher and in this position he got the chance to work with some of the world’s biggest photographers. Being in their close vicinity, he watched and learned. He saw how these artists mastered their skills and techniques, played with camera and light. And whenever he could Bartlomiej practiced with his own material. And, obviously, he got better and better since practice makes perfect.
At some point in his life Bartlomiej Chabalowski met the owner of the largest fashion brand in Poland. An encounter that launched his professional career as photographer. Bartlomiej has now made name for himself as fashion photographer, but this is certainly not all he does. His loves to experiment and learn more by doing things and the result is accordingly. His wonderful work has been published in numerous fashion and lifestyle magazines, and Bartlomiej Chabalowski does also not shy away from more physical and art photography. Today he presents us his work with model Andrew. Quite different from his fashion work, the portraits featuring Andrew and styled by Marcin Kulak are more tongue in cheek sexy, having – yes – quite a western theme. We are not complaining. It is good to have sexy photographers sitting both west and east from us. It makes us feel very comfortable. –BM-
