About me
For more than 10 years I was booker in polish model agencies - I've been working with polish and international brands, clients and modeling agencies. From 2014 to the end of 2021 I was photographers agent in Makata / polish production company I was taking care about developing and supporting on daily basis careers of seven photographers, running theirs business, introducing them to the clients, influence them by arts . I was taking care about they way and how they express them selfs in social media. I was building and creating their visibility and recognition. It was a blast of creativity. I was working with the production team to create amazing presentations for present and future clients. Start with one picture, spark and run through thousand of images to create something amazing and unforgettable - this is my work motto. I understand and manage both small & large budgets. I'm really into photography, especially beauty photography.  I know the rules of production, casting and management. This is my world. I have been working as the casting director for more than 8 years. I did castings for tv commercials, music videos, digital publications and photography. Here is the sample of my casting work ( Makata is the name of production house I worked for) : https://vimeo.com/makataproduction I did more than 150 castings ( tvc, digital, photography, music videos ) for clients such as Pepsi, Lipton, Fanta, Ikea, OB, Decathlon, Pharmaceris, Avon, Lays. Languages : fluent English basic Italian - I can read and understand a lot mother tongue : Polish I'm quite good at some - tools that are quite important for communication with Clients. In 2022 I've moved to Italy. I've been developing my instagram profile for some time now https://www.instagram.com/tymczasem_na_obrusie/ I cook, I do style, I take pictures. I use the available and natural light, then the dishes look the most natural and perfect. I like working with food textures and shooting angles. So this is me
