I was born 1950 in Katowice-Szopienice. After primary school I had started education in Technikum Fototechniczne in Katowice – Piotrowie, where after mature exam I received a Photo Technician diploma.
In 1971 I begun work at my grandfather’s, Augystyn Niesporek, photo studio established in 1919. In 1974 I received a title of master of photography. In the studio I work constantly till the present days. During my private photography business I have joined Klub Artystycznej Fotografii in Katowice, where after few years I became a member of the club’s board, and subsequently a chairman. During that time I was also a master of Wojewódzki Cech Fotografów w Katowicach. Other hosted by me duties were – chairman of Stowarzyszenie Fotografów Polskich. I conducted trainings for professional photographers – craftsmen hosted by ‘Elfo’ company from Łódź.
From the time of first photo fair in Międzyzdroje I tried there to bring up to the people photography workshop. Till today, together with ‘Sony Poland’, I conduct workshops at Fairs in Łódź.
During my professional work I managed to arrange few photo exhibitions, among the others:
- Twarze Tele -3 cz.-1
- Twarze Tele – 3 cz.-2
- Kobiety w fotografii rodziny Niesporków
- Twarze Grad”Oro
After joining ZPAF in Katowice I participated in collaborative exhibitions, for example:
- 60-lecie ZPAF
- Śląski Tramwaje
- Moja Mała Ojczyzna
Nowadays I am preparing exhibition called ‘Nikisz’ and ‘Ludzie z Nikiszowca’. I was always interested in portrait that is why I want to be remain faithful to this until the end of my professional and artistic work.
