A portrait and documentary photographer, based in Northampton, Dariusz Stec loves to click, sail and travel, who would like to show how and what he sees through the lens of his camera. Smena-8m was the first camera in his possession in 1985, created around 3000 photos mostly during soaring, and was totally preoccupied with the darkroom photo processing. The next camera was zenit-ttl. Even when he was absorbed by sailing, photography has played important role in his life. After some time he had decided to master his photography, together with his son (Adam Stec), who found himself within portrait fashion photography. They have decided to develop the knowledge of the art of photography.
Stec Studios isn’t just a place to take pictures, it’s a place where, through capturing portraits, they try to find out more about the subject through capturing their soul. And when photographing documentary style event photography, they focus on capturing the decisive moment/candid photographs throughout the special day.
