bio

Director of Photography, graduate from the Cinematography department at Łódź Film School, where currently he is a lecturer and a PhD student.

Karol shot more than 150 commercial projects in Poland and abroad. For the last 4 years he also worked on sets of feature films as a camera operator (Tiger Zind Hai, Bharat) and Director of Photography (Tandav web series). Thanks to that he gained extremely valuable experience in working with an international crew and high-budget productions. A film „Look at me” with his cinematography and directed by Katarzyna Jungowska was nominated for Jan Machulski’s independent cinema award.

He approaches each project with flexibility and openness to different solutions, because he believes there’s always more than one good way to reach a satisfactory result. Karol also works as a 3d generalist and he is very familiar to the new technologies. His vast knowledge about postproduction helps him to properly prepare his material for this process.
