Name: Adam Kokot
Specialty: extreme sport and adventure photographer

Brief Bio:
I’m 32 years old and since I can remember my life has been connected to mountains and traveling. I became interested in photography a couple of years ago. I bought my first good camera in 2007 and initially I wasn’t really ambitious, treating the activity just as a great hobby and a springboard from my profession. But things went in a different direction. Together with my friends I went climbing in the Tatra Mountains and took some photographs of their achievements. The photos turned out to be interesting for prestigious polish outdoor magazines. Since then I’ve looked at photography in a different way, I’ve learnt and experimented. Now, I’m a regular contributor to mountain magazines in Poland and Czech republic. I try to combine traveling with photography. I try to show everyday life as well as the uniqueness of that part of the world.
