My real name is Wiktor Mech and I am a professional photographer specializing in environmental and studio portraiture, lifestyle and social documentary. I am primarily based in Oxford and London,UK.

Since the very beginning of my photography journey in 2009 I have enjoyed working on projects spanning the entire cultural spectrum: prestigious events,personalities, charity work, private functions and occasionally weddings.In 2013 I have spent several months travelling around Europe and the Atlantic Ocean working as a photographer on board of the spectacular P&O’s vessel mv Ventura where the idea of Instant Magic - retro event photography was born.



Contrasting experiences and an ability to connect makes it easy for me to blend into any setting. My manner is professional but relaxed and this is reflected in the imagery I create.
The initial spark for my passion came from a background in the travel & tourism and philanthropic sectors.Mixing with new people and cultures, I realized that I was meant to see the world through a lens, to interpret it, not just look at it. I am constantly learning: each new assignment helps me to improve and clarify my vision.

My love for photography and people stretches far beyond nowadays dominating digital form.Deep down I am a purist with great passion for the magic of traditional analogue techniques (35mm, medium format and Polaroid). This has effectively had a strong impact on of my style. Gravitating towards simple,organic retro look has now become a second nature and the way I pre-visualise the images before they even come to exist.

If you would like to discuss a portrait,environmental or property photography project, please contact me.
