IREK GRAFF :: PHOTOGRAPHY :: TEACHING


WELCOME!
I am Ireneusz Graff. My first name is often shortened to "Irek".

Photography has always been my great passion since the teens. I am also keen on other photographic topics as well as diaporama and multimedia professional slideshows.
Music is my second passion, however I cannot sing or play any instrument. What a pity! But you can often meet me at the concerts
