If you made it this far, I suppose, you are interested in answers to one of the burning questions of "who," "how," "why" or "what?"  Or perhaps all of them.  While the purpose of this site is more visual than written, I will try to answer these questions briefly, so you can go back to focusing on the former.  Please, take your time while doing so.

My name is Dawid Chabowski, but those who have known me for a long time call me Dafi, while those who only just met me or are trying to read my name off of a page or a name tag usually exercise some serious creativity in pronouncing my name.  If you, too, struggle a bit, don't worry. After 32 summers in more than one place around the world, I believe, I have heard the majority of the iterations. I am of Polish nationality but have studied, worked and lived across three continents for the majority of my life. I enjoy meeting new people, engaging in new challenges and cannot sit still, photography has been with me for the past 16 years.

While photography has taken me many places both physically and emotionally, most of the time, I just like being the guy with a camera, who gets to take pictures of others enjoying a moment at their best. If you'd look through my photo libraries, you'd quickly realize that this idea of being the man behind a camera, so others can enjoy the moment, is a permanently reoccurring theme. From sports photography through weddings and other gatherings all the way to portrait photography, my approach has always been the same - to provide my subjects with the peace of mind that there is someone who cares about capturing their moment from the best perspective possible.


Thus, whether you're lens-shy, worried about looking good, or would like to work with someone who will make your needs a priority, but is still easy to communicate with, lets meet up for a drink of your choice (mine is a cup of strong tea), so we can get to know each other, and I can put all your worries to rest.


Drop me an e-mail or a DM at one of my social accounts, if you have questions or would like to get together to talk details of a photoshoot, or better yet, just message me that you want to work together.

As you wait for my reply, enjoy the galleries. Each ALBUM is representative of my past and present work.
