Baltic Kite Wave Jam
Bronze in Press/Sports
When I was a child, kitesurfing was like the first mobile phones. It was
a unique and fascinating for the most of people.
When I grew up and I could afford the purchase of equipment, I
started to practice this sport. Along the way I met many wonderful
people, because surfing is not just a sport, but also people. A small
group of these people decided to create a profession called Baltic Kite
Wave Jam - competition for weather forecast. Despite the fairly young
age, it is safe to say that this is a cult event for which all kite wave
surfers eagerly wait each year.
I wanted to show what the kitesurfing is.
Mateusz Gorny - photographer by passion.
The first camera as a child I received from my grandfather on "Christmas" which was like a bean seed. Waiting a few years to germinate, when I saved from spending money on the first digital compact Pentax. The ability to see immediately the results of working together with a course photograph, which was then attached to the magazine National Geographic, awakened my curiosity and desire to experiment more and more with photography.
A year later, I took the first place in the category of "Joy" in the first edition of the polish Grand Photo Competition by National Geographic. As a reward I got the first digital SLR camera, which was beyond my reach - Nikon D70s. Thanks to believe in themselves and simply disappeared in photography for good.
Since then, events have passed more than 10 years. I try to appreciate everything that catches my attention in a way that will interest and interest. My photography is dominated by a passion to the water.
