Marcin Giba.jpg

Welcome to my website. My name is Marcin Giba and I would like to present my photos taken with a drone here. I graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography at the University of Silesia in the Czech Opava with a master's degree in photography. I organize one of the oldest photography festivals in our country. I live in Silesia, but I work all over Poland.

 

I professionally carry out commercial sessions, the effects of which allow us to build the image of people and companies and support their marketing activities.

 

In my free time I create Podniebne Obrazy, which are a source of many joys and a few awards:
