Welcome to my site!
Kowal Photo is a Wedding, Portrait, and Commercial photographer based in Warrington, Cheshire. I also do all kind of baby and kids portraits, events, and special family days. I am available for destination wedding and portraits photography.
My name is Przemysław Kowalczyk. My great passion is photography. Photography has been in my life since childhood. My first camera was given to me on First Holy Communion - it was the Kodak 335. At a time when there was no memory card with the ability to shoot forever I had to watch out that the photo was a perfect - there were was only 36 exposures , the cost of development and the purchasing of film were motivating to strive for perfection. Growing up, raised my photographic ambitions. Then after Kodak was the Konica and dad's Smiena, then next was the first full professional SLR Zenit.
The technique still strive forward so I decided not to stay behind. The first DSLR was bought by me in 2006 that fully serves me to this day. This acquisition has enabled me to develop my skills. Film turned into memory card and darkroom into computer.
I dedicate my free time to raiseing awareness of the creation of photography, participating in a number of training courses and workshops related to the field. We are constantly trying to keep track of all the latest technology and complement my photographic equipment to obtain the best results.
At a time when quick, fast, cheap and low-quality pictures are becoming so common I assure Professional photos in the traditional way.
I want to capture the moments of happiness and love and preserve them forever in the form of images.
I do what I do with great commitment which is reflected in the final result
I'd be honored if you allow me to capture a split-second of your life, your emotions.
I invite you to work with me
