Web Design & Development

In 1995 internet was used by 16m people worldwide (0.4% world population)*. This was the year of my first encounter with the Web.

In 2000 it was already 304m users globally (5%)*. At that time, I was part of a team implementing the first internet brokerage house in Poland (PM @ e-point SA).

In 2003 – the number of users rose to 670m (10%)*. I traveled around Mexico for a year. To pay the bills I developed websites for hotels, tourist agencies, and diving centers.

Up until 2020, the user count grew to 5b globally (64%)*. Meanwhile I developed numerous websites and e-commerce platforms, although it was not my primary occupation.

This proved to be beneficial. It kept my skills up to date with the immense evolution of the medium.

Then 2020 came. Not the best year for commercial photography.

The special circumstances made me use my web-development skills to a greater extent again. While developing numerous projects for clients and myself, I progressed and started enjoying it even more than I did before.

The greatest advantage for the client is when I create both – photography and web design. The website then becomes an immaculately designed frame for the exquisite photographs I create for my clients.

Below is a shortlist of recently finished projects.
