Professional photography entered his life during a trip to Tibet in 1994. For a few years he combined the role of a photographer undertaking challenging tasks with that of a design consultant and organizer of specialist sessions in Alpinus – that time the biggest Polish outdoor gear company. Since 2000, he has been continually cooperating on various projects with “National Geographic Poland” He specializes in action, outdoor sports and extreme photography. Since 2014 he has been a cast member of Martyna Wojciechowska’s show “”Woman at the End of the World”. He jokes that his biggest achievement is climbing to the top of Ama Dablam in the Himalayas with a full set of 6×7 camera and lenses in big bag with tripod – „it was harder than a high altitude Sherpa’s work”. Between his expeditions, Marek lives with his wife and two kids and dog in the mountains.
