Sydney based Henryk Lobaczewski never really planned to be a photographer, let alone a fashion photographer: “- While studying graphic design I got a job straight out of university as an Art Director for Lorna Jane, and they hired me under the pretense that I’d shoot their monthly look books as well. I had never used studio lights before. They bought me two. Before I knew it I had fell deeply in love with fashion photography- borrowing and finally buying the lights off the company and resigning to freelance photography back to them while finding more clients. One year after I moved to sydney and set up a studio and the passion remains- all self taught- you just have to love what you do.”
His clients include Culture Magazine, Triumph Lingerie, Gary Yang, Angus & Julia Stone, and many more, and he enjoys the work of fellow photographers such as Steven Meisel, Miles Aldridge, Camilla Åkrans, Annie Liebowitz, David LaChapelle and Helmut Newton: “- They all have their own unique style in photography which is all individually beautiful” and continues “- All the creative people in the world and how they interpret what they love inspires me, plus beautiful women, beautiful clothes & styling.”
