It's weird to be writing about me because my work has never been about me. My number one goal is to capture the personality and beauty of my clients and I'll do whatever it takes to get THE shot(s). This quite often includes laying down on the busy streets of New York or climbing on whatever around me is climbable (because angles).
Photography found me when I least expected it after I moved to NYC from Germany (where I went to college and graduated with a Masters Degree in Culture Studies & Roman Philology). It's been an over 10 year long adventure filled with a ton of learning that has made me meet and work with incredible people, brands and publications. From the very beginning of my career I've been photographing mostly Women of Color (recently also more and more Black men) which very quickly turned into my main focus and for which eventually I got featured in Vogue Polska (I am 100% Polish, born and raised). The work created for my clients has been published all over the world. I've shot and conceptualized influencer campaigns for brands like Reebok, H&M, Amazon, Sephora, Eloquii, Footlocker, Kite Hill, AmEx, David Yurman and countless more. I had a pleasure to photograph Prince's performance at Versace x H&M private party, Vera Wang's most recent birthday, Cardi B, Yo Gotti, Dascha Polanco and quite a few more known names. Fun fact - although unrelated to everything else - I also got hired to shoot the United Nations 70th Anniversary Postage Stamps and that work secured me a spot among the winners of the prestigious AI-AP in 2015.
I speak five languages and Spanish is my all time fave. I cannot dance (even if my life depended on it) but I love Latin-American music - anything from bachata to vallenatos, including rock and rancheras. Sometimes I get asked what I would do if I wasn't a photographer - and even though I've had a lot of time to think about it the answer is always "I don't know". I just love it so much.
“Working with Marta Skovro has been amazing. Since I started working with Marta I'm putting out quality work. My images are top tier! She makes every image look like art and & knows her skill very well. You can't sleep on her, her work speaks for itself!”
