I am an amateur photographer with love for portraits. 

Born and raised in Poland. Since 2006 I am based in Dublin (Ireland). In 2010 I attended the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, where I learned more about techniques of traditional photography. 

I cooperate with Make up Artists:  Joanna Szumiec & Beata Kaminska.


Anyone interested in cooperation please contact: sylwiabalinska@gmail.com or through a contact form.
