Info

I have been professional photographer for over a decade.

Besides commercial work I develop personal documentary projects. I hold BA degree at the Institute of Creative Photography on the Silesian University in Czech Republic. For one of my documentary projects I have been granted a scholarchip from Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Please visit my documentary portfolio at: tomekgola.com.

I am based in Geneva, Switzerland and Warsaw, Poland, but operate worldwide.
