Hello, we are Michael and Alicja, professional photographers based in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. We have a passion for fine art, architecture, fashion, music, surfing and photography!
We’ve been a couple for a long time and professional photographers for longer. We met by chance at a photography exhibition miles from our homes only to find we were from the same town! Since setting up Fotogenic we’ve photographed over 500 weddings in addition to getting published in magazines including Vogue Bride, Conde Naste, Marie Claire, Newsweek, The Times, Evening Times, The Herald, The National. We also work regularly for the Scottish Ballet and other cultural organizations and charities. Some of the highlights of our work were photographing Keira Knightley as a bridesmaid; as well as working with actors like Brian Cox, Jamie Dornan, Laura Fraser and Clémence Poésy; composers John Maxwell Geddes and Eddie McGuire; conductor John Carewe; artists including Nathan Coley, Alison Watt and Andy Scott.
Alicja began at music school where she played piano and later base guitar in a post-punk band called Double Headed Boy before being accepted into the prestigious European Academy of Photography in Warsaw. Michael was awarded his Masters degree in Architecture before deciding to pursue his first love, photography. He travelled to New York City where he honed his passion for documentary style images and held numerous exhibitions afterwards. He then got his second degree in Photography from the renowned Glasgow School of Art where he became a visiting tutor after graduating.
