My name is Mariusz Nowak, but most people call me Mario. I think of myself as an independent freelancer. I was born in Poland and now live and work in the US.
Currently, I hold a position as an IT professional in one of the public universities while also working as a freelance photographer.
I like to travel, take pictures, and enjoy ham radio - my US call sign is KC8P. My love for photography goes back farther than I can remember. My first camera was a small point and shoot 35mm film camera, and now I use a Canon Pro Series 1D Mark IV and their lenses line-up.
In my photography philosophy, I believe in these words:
"No matter how advanced your camera you still need to be responsible for getting it to the right place at the right time and pointing it in the right direction to get the photo you want" Ken Rockwell
I hope you find my work inspiring!
