Jacek Bugajski

Water has always accompanied me since I was a child. It's my element, passion and sport. Starting from games in the water, through the swimming section, until 2001. Then I tried to breathe from a tank under water for the first time. I knew right away that this was what I wanted to do. Fascinated by diving, I began to acquire various skills, take part in courses and learn the secrets of technical diving. However, it was only thanks to my wife that I got to know the full range of possibilities that the underwater world hides. We started with the wife's Lumix, then GoPro, then the first, and then the second SLR camera (Nikon D850) in a solid housing. Especially the macro world attracts me like a magnet, but large marine animals are also extremely beautiful and fascinating to me. In my photographic work I mainly use two lenses: 105mm macro and 8–15mm fisheye.

My adventure with photography began long before I started diving. From the very first dive I dreamed that I would be accompanied by a camera. As I became more adept at diving, my photography gear evolved as well. From a simple gopro camera through a compact and SLR camera to a full-frame mirrorless camera. Now I can't imagine diving without a camera. I have the impression that underwater photography gives meaning to my diving.
