Awe-inspiring women: Tammy Parlour


I met Tammy a few years ago when she commissioned me to take some pictures for her site. That’s when I discovered the fascinating world of hapkido, a Korean martial art, which Tammy has been practising for over 30 years now. Since then we’ve worked together on a video for [...]

This is just a quick note to let everybody know I have a new Facebook page for my video and photography work – Michal Dzierza Visuals. I’ve decided (at last) to separate my private posts from my video and photography updates, which from now on can be found here (was [...]

Almost summer


Not sure why, but I completely forgot to post it earlier. Filmed a couple of weeks ago in Richmond. See more of my videos here.

Almost summer
