Hello, 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. I’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 share similar interest and love to take pictures and have long debates about photography. Since setting up Fotogenic in 2004 we’ve photographed over 600 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. 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.
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.
