We are Michael & 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 we’ve been taking pictures for even longer. We’ve met for the first time on a photographic exhibition far away from our home town just to find out that we not only live close to each other but we also share similar interest and love of photography. Since setting up Fotogenic in 2004 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 and photographing model Lara Stone; 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.
Michael was awarded his Master’s degree in Architecture before deciding to pursue his first love, photography. He traveled 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.
Alicja began at music school where she played piano and later base guitar in a post-punk band before being accepted into the prestigious Academy of Photography. After graduating she committed to fashion photography working with world-renowned fashion photographers as well as doing her own portrait and fashion commissions for top magazines. Wedding reportage came as a result of previous experience.
